2 ounces fine cognac 


Maple Smoked Bacon

Dark brown sugar

kabob sticks

Weave the maple smoked bacon on the kabob sticks. Sprinkle dark brown sugar on both sides of the bacon. Cook it in the toaster oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Flip the bacon at 5 minutes. 

Pour the cognac over ice and stick the bacon kabobs in the drink.
