Behind the Bar: Bacon Bourbon Breakup

There’s a lot of love (after lockup) to go around on tonight’s season finale of Love After Lockup! Our couples make painful decisions about their futures in these back-to-back episodes, but WE never could have guessed what happens next. While Angela’s sister confronts Tony, we learn his newest secret. Elsewhere, Lacey and John receive the results of his paternity test, and it’s enough to make him crash her wedding! Later, Amber and Vince’s new development prompts a confess to Puppy, while Glorietta embarks on a crazy search for Alex! But, WE saved the best for last - Daniel jeopardizes his engagement to Lizzy! Stick around afterward to watch the Boot Campers enter their hardest day of Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition yet. Soothe all of tonight’s pain with a “Bacon Bourbon Breakup” and prepare for the worst while expecting the best!

Recipe: Bacon Bourbon Breakup

  • 2 strips of bacon
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • 1 oz. maple syrup
  • Dash of bitters

Place bacon on a baking sheet and brush with maple syrup. Pop into the oven and cook until crispy. Set bacon aside to cool. Combine any leftover bacon fat with bourbon and refrigerate.
