Bourbon-Bacon Deviled Eggs

- 1/3 cup bourbon
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise

Place bacon into a bowl with bourbon and let marinate for about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place bacon slices onto pan, and sprinkle with cayenne, coconut sugar, and pepper. Bake for about 15 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
Time to assemble! Place yolk filling into a pipping bag. Pipe filling into egg white halves, top with piece of bourbon bacon, and scallions. Repeat, devour, and enjoy!
