This Week in Bacon: Booze! The Final Chapter

After three weeks of waiting and dreaming, the Bacon Vodka is finished. It has been strained and filtered, it has been bottled.

And it has been tasted.

It’s good. I mean really good.

It’s a subtle, smokey, baconey flavor with just mild hints of the black peppercorn.

Considering I think regular vodka tastes like lighter fluid, that says a lot.

So it goes without saying, the next logical step was to refine my Bloody Mary recipe to ensure Christmas morn is spent enjoying the greatest breakfast cocktail…ever.

After some trial and error, I think I’ve got it.

The Bloody Bacon

Fill a pint glass with ice. Grind some black pepper and shake some celery salt over the cubes and set it aside for a country second.

In a shaker, add:

• 6 oz vegetable juice

• 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

• 4-10 shakes of Tabasco, depending on your tastes…I opted for 12.

• 6 Dashes Worcestershire sauce

• A generous pinch of garlic powder

• A fat-fingered pinch of onion powder

• 2 big pinches of celery salt

• Copious amounts of black pepper

• A shake of cayenne pepper

• A shake of chipotle

• 1/2 teaspoon horseradish

• 1/2 teaspoon wasabi

• 1 ounce beef broth

• 2 shots of Bacon Vodka..I opted for 3.

Shake, then pour over the ice.

I garnished it with fresh cooked bacon, roasted red pepper-stuffed green olives and a wedge of lime.

It is, quite possibly, the greatest Bloody Mary I’ve ever tasted.

    Just thought I should leave some praise for this recipe. Used a friend’s ginger-carrot vodka (as my bacon vodka isn’t quite ready yet) but the combination of those flavors was amazing. Best bloody mary I’ve ever had as well, hands down. Can’t wait to use the bacon vodka with it!

    On an unrelated note, your music is excellent! Thanks for the tunes and the delicious beverages!
