  • .5 oz Grade-B maple syrup
  • .5 oz Orange juice

How to make The Nose to Cocktail

Add all the ingredients to a shaker and shake vigorously without ice for 10 seconds. Fill with ice and shake for 10 seconds more. Strain into a highball glass.

* Bacon-infused Bushmills Irish Whiskey


  • 2 oz High quality bacon
  • 1.5 oz Bushmills Irish Whiskey


Cook the bacon until all the fat is rendered. Set the bacon aside for another use and pour the drippings into a glass jar with a lid. Add the whiskey, shake well and let stand in a cool, dark place for 48 hours to infuse. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes (the fat should solidify). Scoop the fat off the top and strain to remove any additional fat particles.
