Okay, It's not Bourbon, but it was a delicious American Whiskey.



So last night I attended a small charity event at Beer Bistro here in Chicago. And while most everyone was drinking beer, I decided to buck the trend and try something new. So I ordered a Templeton Rye neat and a water back.

I definitely won't give up Bourbon for it, but it was a delicious experience and given the opportunity, I'll drink Templeton again! I added a couple of cubes of ice from the water and let them melt, then drank.

Orange-caramel in color, it had a fresh grain aroma and light soury rye taste with a nice peppery finish.

I'd definitely recommend Templeton Rye for someone who wants to try something a little different from the everyday. It's a great booze for a celebratory toast or just sipping with friends.

Bacon wrapped Bacon.

Take two thick cut bacon collops. Fold in half and place in a large cast iron skillet. Bake it in a 400 degree oven until nice and crispy on the outside.

Where the hell is my daily Bacon forecast!?!?

Sorry that we here at "Your Daily Bourbon and Bacon" have been slacking the past week or so on the Bacon Forecast.

Due to the end of an amazing political season, and a wedding in Georgia (which did include the mass consumption of bacon and country ham), we've been remiss in our duties as purveyors of your bacon expectations.

We promise to return with a new Daily Bacon Forecast tomorrow.

OH NO!

Time to quit getting that water added supermarket stuff and pick up some bacon like this:


Notice the rasher of bacon behind the plate? Notice how the strips are still nice and thick and not shriveled? Thanks to a press and low water content those collops are flat, thick and delicious looking!

Little Known Bacon Facts:

Over 2 Billion pounds of Bacon are produced annually in the United States!

Bacon has the amazing power to cure hangovers.

Bacon has balanced the budget several times, but due to it's deliciousness it doesn't remain in office long enough to keep the budget out of politician's hands.

Bacon is the one thing that Chuck Norris submits to.

The real reason the Dick Cheney shot Harry Whittington in the face is because during breakfast Cheney caught Whittington eyeballin' his Bacon. Can't fault Cheney for protecting his sweet, sweet fruit of the swine.

Why American Airlines Might Be Having Financial Troubles...

I caught an cheap flight (Thanks to Priceline and The Shat) home to Georgia over the weekend for a funeral. The flight attendants pulled out the drink cart and began asking what we'd like to drink.

"Jim Beam and Coke" is my reply as I pull cash from my pocket.

"I'm sorry?" as she turns her head so her ear to face me.

"Jim. Beam. And. Coke." I enunciate. After all it's pretty loud in this tube at 27,000 feet.

"I'm sorry we don't have that."

"Okay, how about Jack Daniel's and Coke?"

"Uh-uh. We have a Canadian Whiskey." She states hopefully.

I'm flabbergasted. AMERICAN Airlines doesn't stock either of the two American styles of whiskey? I understood that I probably would have to settle for Jack Daniels, since most airlines don't carry Jim Beam, but not to stock either is down right foolish.

I look at her and said, "Just give me the Coke."

Why Would I Ever Need a Reason to Drink...


Early - Mid Spring: Bronchitis almost becomes pneumonia. Check up reveals high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and a lazy thyroid. Crap.

Late Spring - Early Summer: Close uncle dies. Crap.

13 June: 4 year relationship ends. Crap.

Mid Summer: Grandmother dies. Crap.

Late Summer: Global financial crisis. Crap.

Mid Fall: Stepfather dies. Crap.

If I believed in god, I'd thank him for Jacob Beam.
