In honor of National Bourbon Heritage Month next month, Head Bartender Dan Rook of Chicago’s South Water Kitchen crafted a breakfast-inspired bourbon cocktail called Buffalo Soldier. Complete with a whole egg and bacon in the recipe.

Buffalo Soldier

  • 2 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon
  • Whole Egg
  • ½ oz Maple Syrup
  • 2 strips crumbled Bacon
  • 2 dashes Peychauds Bitters

Dry shake bourbon and a whole egg. Add the rest of ingredients and ice. Double strain into a coupe glass (so you can catch the bacon bits). Garnish with a strip of bacon and powdered sugar.
