Every party also needs a signature drink. We’ve asked leading mixologists, sommeliers (the certified Baconeers of wine) and brewmasters (the Baconeers of beer) to share what they think would taste best with these bacon appetizers. . Check out our drink recipes (PDF) for recommendations and hear from the experts why these pair perfectly with your bacon appetizer.
