Jack Daniels Mac and Cheese with Bacon

Bourbon can be used to great effect in both sweet and savoury dishes. The sweet, salty bursts of flavour from the bacon are simply wonderful, and the sauce is creamy and rich. The whole thing reheats really well too, which is always a challenge to get that same first day feeling. This pasta does it!
