Bartender Bill Denham serves a Maple Bacon Old-Fashioned he made with bourbon and pure maple syrup and garnished with sugared bacon. The original cocktail is popular with cocktail drinkers at Bluegrass Kitchen.
House-made garnishes such as cocktail onions, sugared bacon, pickled green onions and brined Meyer lemons join an interesting selection of bitters at the bartenders' disposal for creative cocktail composition.
