The Boozy Bacon Shake and 6 other bacon cocktails
Admit it: You're excited that Red Robin has introduced a bacon-infused, alcoholic milkshake.
The company, infamous for having the unhealthiest fast-food menu item in the country, is at it again.
Part of the new "The South Is in the House" limited-time offerings, the Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake is comprised of "Jim Beam maple bourbon, bacon bits, caramel and vanilla soft serve, stirred to perfection with — you guessed it — another crispy strip of bacon!"
The shake is clearly not for the faint of heart (literally!), but it got me wondering: What other cocktails can be made with smoky, salty, sweet bacon?
Just when you thought you couldn't top Red Robin's bacon shake, someone threw a freakin' doughnut into the mix and changed the booze-shake game forever...
Bacon, coffee and maple make this whiskey-based cocktail the most dangerously delicious breakfast beverage of all time.

I never thought a bacon cocktail could be refreshing, but the fizziness of Coke goes a long way to lighten up this drink, made with rye whiskey and chipotle-spiced bacon — which means you can have more than one.

It has tomatoes and lettuce in it, so it's basically a salad, right?
