2 cups bourbon (Everclear, or Wild Turkey 101)
1/2 lb. bacon
4 cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 tablespoons cinchona bark
1 teaspoon cassia chips
1/2 teaspoon gentian root
1 tablespoon black walnut leaf

In a skillet over medium heat, sear off the bacon.  Remove and drain thoroughly on a paper towel.  Diced. In a 1-quart glass jar, combine all of the ingredients. Cover and shake well. Let stand in a cool, dark place for 2 weeks, shaking the jar daily. Strain the infused alcohol into a clean 1-quart glass jar through a cheesecloth-lined funnel. Squeeze any infused alcohol from the cheesecloth into the jar; reserve the solids. Strain the infused alcohol again through new cheesecloth into another clean jar to remove any remaining sediment. Cover the jar and set aside for 1 week.
