Come learn how to infuse whiskies at the top bartending school in Orlando, Elite bartending school.

First things first, you need to replace your home-made simple syrup, with maple syrup.

Then you need to select your favorite premium Bourbon Whisky, we have chosen to use Makers Mark Bourbon as it has a slightly softer flavor, this is going to balance out perfectly with our Maple syrup.

Then we need to be very careful adding our Angostura bitters, too much will destroy the drink, so only add a few drops, before you stir all the ingredients together.

Yes, this is a stirred cocktail, at Elite Bartending School Orlando we go into the depths of why cocktails need to be shaken and some cocktails need to be stirred.

Before adding ice to your mixing glass, add ½ oz of St Germain, this will add a slight floral flavored to the cocktail, softening the drink.

Finally strain over a giant ice cube, garnishing the drink with your dipped bacon strips to bring out the amazing flavors of this cocktail.

Remember, allow your customers to taste the drink first not last.
