Waffles and maple syrup with a cocktail?
Yep. And it’s even more interesting when homemade bacon bits are added in. But have no fear! This Maple Syrup Cocktail is sweet, unique and all-around fun. With ingredients such as Bailey’s Irish Cream, golden rum and maple syrup, you have a delicious, creamy cocktail unlike anything you’ve ever tried.
Add the Irish Cream, milk, rum and maple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for a few seconds until ingredients are combined. Strain the cocktail into a martini glass. Now to dress it up!
To add a sweet touch, I made mini waffles with Bisquick to accompany the cocktail. I just love this little waffle/pancake pan I found at Williams-Sonoma. It makes perfect little waffles to add as a garnish.
Cook bacon over the stove top. When done and cooled, crumble into little pieces to add to the top of the cocktail. The bacon adds a crunchy texture and a subtle smoky flavor. I didn’t think I was going to like the taste of bacon in my drink as much as I did!
Sprinkle the bacon crumbles into the drink and put two mini waffles onto a small skewer. Pour a small amount of maple syrup on the waffles before serving.
Dip the mini waffles into the drink for an added treat.
Enjoy this unique cocktail!
