Bacon Vodka Recipe

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Anyone ever tried this?

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.

I've never been a fan of vodka, but with a nice smoky flavor I could learn to like it.PDT_Armataz_01_04.gif

Definately worth a try. I've seen and had plenty of infused vodkas and there was a bar here in Mpls that specialized in infused aquavit, but the bacon one is definately a new twist for me.

Sounds different. !! I make limoncello and orangecello, I use pure grain alcohol, I would imagine it would work the same way. the higher the alcohol content, the more oil gets pulled from the zest. Then have to cut it with a sugar/water syrup. If done with bacon, might be able to use brown sugar instead, that would give it a maple cured bacon flavor.confused.gif

I can see it now, Baconcello: It's what's for breakfast.eek.gif

I love bacon and I love Vodka, but I cannot imagine them together. Maybe a vodka drink and a bacon sandwich. This sounds just aweful.eek.gif

If this post gets put on the back shelf, I want you to PM me and tell me how it went. I am calling the wife after this post and tell her to pick up some Vodka. We both like bloody Mary's.

On Diners Drive-ins and Dives a couple months back they went to a place that made a smoky bacon bourbon the same way.
