1 scoop vanilla ice cream 
1 shot spiced rum
1 strip bacon
brown sugar 
Make the bacon straw: Roll up some tin foil into a dowel and wrap a piece of bacon around it. To properly do this, place the bacon onto a cutting board and place the foil stick at a 45 degree angle touching one end of the bacon. Roll the foil wrapping the bacon around it as you go, being careful that the bacon slightly overlaps itself with each revolution. In the end, the bacon should be tightly wrapped like a ribbon. 
Lightly coat the bacon with brown sugar. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes at 325 degrees until crisp. 

To take the bacon off the foil, twist the ends of the foil to thin it, and slowly spin it out of the bacon. Cut the ends off the bacon to make it form a more perfect straw. There will be areas where the bacon isn't fully sealed, but it should still work. 

Make the drink by mixing the rum and cola. Add a scoop of ice cream and stick in the straw. Serve.
