Bacon Infused Vodka 2008-09-27 19:18:19 Reply

So, a little while ago, I saw a recipe online for bacon infused vodka. Immediately, this caught my attention, because bacon and alcohol are two of my favourite past times. Well, today I actually ventured into the great unknown and started the process of creating this magical elixir.

First things first, I had to get vodka, bacon and some mason jars. Now, the bacon and vodka were easy to get, but for some odd reason no one...anywhere sells mason jars. I ended up going to four different stores before I found something suitable to use. Thanks, Wal-Mart.

Alright, getting down to business, I took 4-5 strips of bacon, which is more than the online recipe, but my mason jar holds more vodka than a pint, so I added more bacon. We'll see how that turns out. I started to fry the bacon, which started to make me hungry. I turned the bacon a few times, and after a few minutes cooking it was done.

I took the bacon out of the pan and decided not to blot it with a paper towel, believing that any little extra bacon flavour I can get is going to be good. The next step was easy, adding the vodka to the bacon. I put the bacon in the jar and simply poured the vodka in with it.

This is the result

So, now I have to let it sit for three weeks in a dark cupboard while the vodka takes in the subtleties and nuances of the bacon. I've already got a drink planned for it. Its essentially a bloody mary, except instead of celery, you add a romaine heart. Its a BLT...lolololol.

This could either be extremely awesome or horribly disgusting. I just have to wait three weeks to find out.

The anticipation will be greater than the taste, this is a fact.

Mix it up with some diet Coke.
Also, I sense it could be great for cooking.

Too bad you live in the Great White North, you can find mason jars easily at these stores we got here in New England called The Yankee Candle and Christmas Tree Shop. My aunt picks them up for her home-made jams.

We got a little saying in my kitchen, "bacon can make a turd taste great." I'm hoping the same formula transfers well to booze for ya.

I dunno...I don't think bacon should ever be in liquid form.

I hope this doesn't backfire on you. That extra grease could be detrimental to the experiment. Hopefully the alcohol will preserve it and keep it from going rancid over the next 21 days, but even so I hope you're not going to end up drinking a ton of bland, bowel-moving fat. Most likely any excess grease will solidify on the top layer and you can spoon that shit out before imbibing your concoction.

After the three weeks are up, I'm going to put the vodka in the freezer to solidify the fat, then strain it through a coffee filter.

The final product reminds me of something out of a laboratory scene in a movie where all the different body parts of animals and maybe humans are in jars suspended in a liquid. I don't think I could bring myself to taste it after three weeks. But I think your dedication to taste something new is impressive.

I'm pretty damn excited it's finally happening for real. Mr. Potato, you must save me enough so that I can make a BLT. A friend of mine went to New York a couple weeks ago and bought some chocolate covered bacon. I was super excited to try it, but still amazed at how well the chocolate and bacon complimented each other.

Plus I'm eating some tasty home made rice pudding right now, so that's good...

I bet your concoction would sell well in a Muslim country.


Yay, Obama won. Let's thank his supporters:

This is marketable. I think any vodka producer could easily sell this along with their Raspberry and Lime vodkas.

Oh wow. This really is a fun idea. I wonder how many calories one of those bloody mary's might carry? If this becomes win, then I think you should start your own little brewery on the side. Have a full line up of unique flavors, like steak and eggs or hot dog supreme. Just imagine the look on all the faces of those who indulge!

If I want to get drunk, I'm not gonna waste my time with delicious alcohol. I loose most of my sense of taste soon enough anyways, why waste bacon on it?

Mmm... Bacon.

As someone who has never had alcoholic beverages, it sounds pretty good.

I've had some fun spreading that comment around by itself, and watching people's reactions.

I do send them here eventually, though.
