When you can’t decide if your drink cravings are salty or sweet, and thus choosing from a cocktail list is endlessly annoying, turn to Soda & Swine at Liberty Station in Point Loma. Appealing to indecisive folks, their old fashioned joins two opposite forces in a perfectly seamless union. The savory-sweet version of the classic cocktail uses Henry McKenna bourbon, brown sugar cola syrup, and bacon-infused Angostura bitters, garnished with an orange twist. It’s a cocktail that answers our postmodern dilemma of choice and lets us be cool bourbon drinkers while simultaneously answering to our sweet tooth, and an insatiable desire for all things bacon.
