See how to make a whiskey cocktail with a distinctive and refreshing savory twist. Why pork chop? Well, this bourbon cocktail’s a playful take on a lot of classic flavor pairings from the kitchen. It includes fresh thyme, apple cider, and, for spice and a slightly creamy texture, just a bit of Dijon mustard—all flavors that also work well with pork chops. A little sugar balances the savory here, and fresh lemon juice puts a refreshing cap on things. Get the recipe for Pork Chop, The Cocktail. The Pork Chop is a signature cocktail of the Yardbird Southern Table & Bar in South Beach, Florida. It’s the perfect cocktail paired with grilled meats. See how they do it down at the Yardbird!
