PDT’s Bacon-Infused Old Fashioned
FOR THE BOURBON- BACON INFUSION:
3 or 4 slices bacon, or enough to render 1 ounce of fat (PDT uses Benton’s, but any extra-smoky variety will do)
1 750-ml. bottle of bourbon such as Four Roses Yellow Label FOR THE OLD FASHIONED:
2 ounces bacon-infused bourbon 1/4 ounce Grade B maple syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Twist of orange FOR THE BACON-INFUSED BOURBON: Cook bacon in pan and reserve rendered fat. (1) When bacon fat has cooled a bit, pour off one ounce from pan. (2) Pour bourbon into a non-porous container. (3) Strain the bacon fat into the container and infuse for 4 to 6 hours at room temperature. Place mixture in freezer until all the fat is solidified. With a slotted spoon, remove fat and strain mixture back into bottle. FOR THE COCKTAIL: In mixing glass, stir 2 ounces bacon-infused bourbon, maple syrup, and bitters with ice. Strain into chilled rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with orange twist.

Apparently, after paying for and attending a 4-hour orientation and safety class, you can use all of this equipment for free! I may now know where I’ll be cutting parts for my CNC router next year.

I’m not sure how their 3D printer compares to others in the community, but I will say, I love the look of their case with the handles on top. I also love their logo.

I’ve heard this recommended as a way to really get deep into using OmniFocus to handle your GTD needs, but at 550+ pages, man, I dunno. Sounds like a lot of buying a chair about exercising.
