Bacon Gin Fizz Recipe

Dan George | Mantitlement Updated

Bacon Gin Fizz has a foamy top because of the egg white. The bacon garnish gives you just the savoriness you want.

Brunch is something that we don't really do very often. I love brunch – it's actually the perfect party time, I think.

Not too early in the morning, but just before lunch. You're not tired from working all day, and it's not too late at night that you feel like going to be before you've even started.

I like the type of brunch that is really more like an early dinner. Sure, you're going to have some sort of egg dish and waffles, but I usually hit the carving stations with slices of roast beef and big pieces of bread.

And then there's the cocktails

Champagne cocktails are the standard brunch drink for good reason. You can customize them in many different ways, like these champagne margaritas, or use champagne to make bellinis.

You can even set up a mimosa or a bellini bar so your guests can make their own drinks.

But if mimosas aren't you're thing, maybe they're too sweet for you, or you're not a champagne person… then you've got to try these bacon gin fizz cocktails.

They totally fit the bill for a brunch cocktail. You've got your bacon, your eggs and your booze.

It's the perfect cocktail to have before 5:00.

I know there are some of you out there that are going to say that you're afraid of the uncooked egg white. It's totally fine, really.

Haven't you ever licked the cookie dough spoon? I know all the food police say we shouldn't do that now, but if you're really concerned just make sure you get pasteurized eggs so it won't be an issue.

The egg white makes that frothy, foamy top you see in the drink and also makes the drink a little bit creamier. And egg whites have been used in cocktails for more than a century - it's practically tradition.

This drink does have to be shaken up when served, so you'll have to play bartender for a little while (one of my favorite jobs) but that's OK, it just means you'll be closer to the bar!
