Breakfast Shot with Bacon.

This is our first breakfast shot. We ate it with two ingredient bagels and cream cheese. Yummy and actually quite a fun sustaining way to enjoy a late breakfast.

Try this shot with any hearty breakfast. It’s great with Yogurt pancakes, Biscuits and sausage gravy, and our sourdough waffles.

What’s in an Irish Breakfast?

Add our hearty breakfast Irish whiskey shot and our Jameson Green Tea Shot to your St Patrick’s Day Brunch menu. What a fun way to Theme a brunch party.

The basic components of an Irish Breakfast:

” – sausages, bacon, eggs, baked beans, black pudding and white pudding. The latter – along with the occasional potatoes” According to The Experts’ guide to the Best Places to enjoy An Irish Breakfast in Dublin.

Here’s a recipe for white pudding if you want to have a go at it. Black pudding looks impractical to make.

Here’s a link to buy both the black and white Irish puddings.

My husband is all about it. He ready for a full Irish breakfast anytime.

With pancakes on the side of course. 🙂

The Breakfast Shot Recipe:

This shot turned out so well largely because the whiskey and butterscotch liqueur blended perfectly.

I’ll be looking to create more butterscotch schnapps drinks. You know I love sweet drinks. Butterscotch candy has always been one of my personal favorites. Stay tuned. 🙂

TIP: Make the candied bacon ahead and set aside until needed. You can reheat the bacon in your microwave at serving if you want it warm.

The sweet bacon and the Irish whiskey shot make a great flavor team. And yeah, it’s what’s for breakfast.
