Embodying the essence of a Southern feast, Smoky Southern Charm is a cocktail designed specifically to complement the rich, hearty flavors of brisket and the creamy, indulgent texture of mac n' cheese. This drink marries the deep, intense notes of bourbon with the sweet, comforting flavors of maple and a hint of smokiness, creating a balanced cocktail that enhances and echoes the savory, smoky notes of your meal. ### Ingredients: - 2 oz Bourbon (preferably a smoky variety) - 1/2 oz Maple Syrup - 1/2 oz Fresh Lemon Juice - 1/4 oz Liquid Smoke - 1 Egg White (for froth and texture; optional) - Dash of Angostura Bitters - Ice - Crisp Bacon Strip and a Pinch of Smoked Paprika (for garnish) ### Instructions: 1. In a shaker, combine the bourbon, maple syrup, lemon juice, liquid smoke, and egg white (if using). Dry shake (without ice) vigorously for about 15 seconds to emulsify the egg white. 2. Add ice to the shaker and shake again vigorously for about 30 seconds to chill the mixture properly. 3. Strain into a chilled old-fashioned glass filled with a large ice cube. 4. Add a dash of Angostura bitters on top. 5. Garnish with a crisp strip of bacon and a light sprinkle of smoked paprika. ### Serving Glass: Old-Fashioned Glass Smoky Southern Charm is a cocktail that stands up to the bold flavors of brisket and mac n' cheese, offering a complementary blend of sweetness, acidity, and smoke. It's an invitation to indulge in the richness of Southern cuisine, with a sophisticated, modern twist.
