How to make

  1. Fry bacon lardons and cool.

    Gently cook bacon lardons to colour and then allow to cool.

  2. Add lardons to Johnnie Walker Red Label.

    Pour 100ml Johnnie Walker Red Label into a glass or jug and add lardons. Leave to infuse for 30 minutes.

  3. Fry streaky bacon.

    Cook streaky bacon in a cross shape over a medium heat until crispy.

  4. Add Johnnie Walker Red Label, lemon juice, orange juice, maple syrup, egg white and ice to a cocktail shaker.

    Half-fill a shaker with ice. Using a jigger, pour in the bacon-infused Johnnie Walker Red Label, 50ml maple syrup and 2 egg whites. Using a sharp knife and chopping board, cut open a lemon and orange and add the juice of both.

  5. Shake vigorously.

    Holding the shaker in both hands thrust it forwards and back quickly until the surface of the shaker feels chilled.

  6. Add ice to a glass, pour over the mixture and garnish with bacon pieces.

    Fill a Collins glass or tumbler with cubes of ice. Then pour the mixture from the shaker through a strainer and place the two-piece bacon crosses in the glass to garnish.

Get some grub in before or while you’re drinking – it slows alcohol absorption.
