Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 25mins
First place bacon in a large Dutch oven, and heat over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove bacon using a slotted spoon, and let drain on paper towels. Reserve 1/4 cup drippings from pan.
Last add bourbon to Dutch oven, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, scraping browned bits from bottom of pan with a wooden spoon. Add reserved 1/4 cup drippings, popcorn kernels, and sugar; cover and shake constantly until kernels begin to pop. Once popping has slowed to every 2 to 3 seconds, remove from heat. Continue shaking until popping has ceased completely. Sprinkle with bacon.
