Whiskey Bacon Pancakes

Nothing can quite cure the post St. Patty’s Day hangover like pancakes can. So why not keep the whiskey flowing and make some amazing brunch! Here is a quick and easy recipe of Whiskey Bacon Pancakes.


Pancake Batter Ingredients (makes about 10 pancakes):

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup Milk
  • Tablespoon of melted butter

Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl until thick. Let the mixture sit for a half an hour. Cook your pancakes in an oiled frying pan on medium heat for about 1 min per side.

Whiskey, Bacon and Maple Syrup:

  • 1 shot of your favorite whiskey (I use Writer’s Tears, which is an Irish whiskey)
  • 1 1/2 cup high quality Maple Syrup
  • 1 package of your favorite bacon (because, let’s be honest… you can’t just have 1-2 pieces)


  • Cook half the bacon to a crisp in a hot frying pan
  • Crumble this into small bits and add to the maple syrup and whiskey in a saucepan on low heat, stirring as you bring it to the simmer
  • Turn off heat and cover saucepan (you don’t want the syrup to be too hot for serving)
  • Cook the remaining bacon to your liking
  • Drizzle the syrup over a stack of fresh pancakes along with the bacon strips
