yield: 2 cocktail floats

3 slices thick-cut bacon
1 Tbsp brown sugar
3 oz bourbon
1 ½ cups root beer
2/3 cup vanilla ice cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet and lay the slices of bacon on it. Cook bacon for 15 minutes and then remove from oven. Sprinkle the slices of bacon evenly with brown sugar and cook for an additional 5 minutes until crunchy. Remove from oven to cool.

Once the bacon is cool, chop into tiny pieces (almost like bacon sprinkles!). Set aside.

In a large measuring cup with a spout, add bourbon and root beer and stir to combine; set aside. Evenly divide the ice cream between two tall glasses. Fill each glass with half of the bourbon and root beer mixture. Sprinkle with the candied bacon bits and enjoy!
