I'll let you in on a little secret: the creative folks behind our butcher counters have been banging out gorgeous, smoky, house-cured and house-smoked bacon. It's been flying off the shelves, so if you see it in our butcher case, get it while you can.

Cocktail ingredients available at New Pi
We've got the most beautiful – and giftable – collection of cocktail ingredients at New Pi. Check out the gorgeous bottle of Dashfire Bourbon Bitters above. It's like a cologne bottle, but I'm pretty confident its contents taste better. It's even letter-pressed. Perfect for your cocktail-lovin' sweetie (not to speak of pairing it with that bottle of Iowa bourbon behind it)!


Maple Bacon Old Fashioned

We couldn't think of a better way to beat the winter blues than a fabulous cocktail featuring maple syrup, bourbon, and a slice of perfectly cooked bacon. This play on the classic Old Fashioned cocktail is sure to hit the spot! – Melissa Arp, New Pi Specialty Coordinator

1 T. local maple syrup (such as from these folks here at Great River Maple!)

3 dashes Scrappy's Aromatic Bitters, Bittercube Bolivar Bitters, or Dashfire Orange Bitters (an alternative to Angostura that’s free of artificial colors)

2 oz. Cedar Ridge Bourbon or Rye whisky, or Sazerac Rye, or Miss Rye

Fever tree or Q drink club soda

1 slice of bacon, cooked and allowed to cool

ice or Neptune spherical ice (mold available at New Pi – prepare one large ice cube in advance)


Place the maple syrup in an Old Fashioned glass. Add a few dashes of the bitter of your choice. Add a splash of club soda.

Drop in one large spherical ice cube or a handful of ice cubes, then 2 oz. of rye. Stir.

Garnish with an entire stick of bacon!
