Bacon Vodka?

March 3, 2008

So I have now become known as the person who will put bacon in anything.

I found this recipe for bacon flavored vodka and I am hard pressed to think what one would use as mixer, but feel free to give it a try and let me know!

Thanks to Steve who directed me to the original creator of this recipe, Brownie Points.


Bacon Vodka

Makes up one pint

  • Fry up three strips of bacon
  • Add cooked bacon to a clean pint sized mason jar. Trim the ends of the bacon if they are too tall to fit in the jar. Or you could go hog wild and just pile in a bunch of fried up bacon scraps.
  • Optional: add crushed black peppercorns.
  • Fill the jar up with vodka. Cap and place in a dark cupboard for at least three weeks. (No need to refrigerate)
  • At the end of the three week resting period, place the bacon vodka in the freezer to solidify the fats. Strain out the fats through a coffee filter to yield a clear filtered pale yellow bacon vodka.
  • Decant into decorative bottles and enjoy.

    Bacon Vodka? In a Bloody Mary! Mmmm, vodka, tomato juice, Worsteshire sauce, Tobasco Sauce, (you remember the smell) pepper and a touch of lime. garnish with spicy pickled asparagus spears. Gulp it all down with eggs on toast covered in Hollandaise sauce. D,ZAMN!

    Small world, hey Steve? Although I am not the least bit surprised that the obviously twisted mind that created this dreamy concoction is a friend of yours! I can’t wait to see her other stuff!

    Hey -I made the Brownie Points recipe, and mixed it with tomato water, garnished with a bacon curl, lettuce and a frozen tomato for a seriously delish BLTini.
