Whiskey Bacon Pancakes

Whiskey Maple 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 donโ€™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
