When I first heard about Homemade Bacon Vodka….I thought to myself “WHHAAAAAAAAATTTTT?!”. At first, I felt a little nauseated. Then, I became intrigued. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I’m a firm believer that bacon makes everything taste better. So, is it really that weird to make several batches of bacon flavoured vodka?
For starters, you might ask – what does one do with said vodka? Well, for years, I have been making Caesars with either plain (gasp) or pepper / Chile flavoured vodka. I’ve even been known on more than one occasion to spice things up by throwing a couple of spoonfuls of horseradish or wasabi into glass (which is delightful, although looks pretty nasty).
This would also be the perfect accompaniment to our annual Wine and Swine event. I mean…how awesome would it be to go to a party and receive a Bacon flavoured Caesar garnished with a strip of crispy bacon (Sorry pickled asparagus / spicy green bean / olives….you have been replaced), and then proceed to the main event – a whole Chinese style roasted pig. OMG! I think I have died and gone to food heaven!
