Sweet-N-Salty Maple

1 1/2 ounces Bird Dog Maple Flavored Whiskey
1/4 ounce (or 1/2 a bar spoon) cherry syrup
2 dashes bitters
Orange slice
Bacon slice, cooked and crispy 

Add the Bird Dog Maple Flavored Whiskey and cherry syrup to a rocks or small glass. Stir slightly to mix, and then dash with bitters. Gently squeeze the orange slice around the rim of the glass, rimming it with juice, and then squeeze the rest into the drink. Discard the orange slice, and garnish with cooked, crispy slice of bacon. 

Optional Service: Prep/mix the same, but serve the drink with the bacon garnish on a bar napkin instead of in the drink.
