Bacon Flavored Vodka

Hello world, I’m going to make my first post quick and simple. It makes a great “guy gift”, and takes very little effort. (Sweeeeeet!)IMG_1319

Today, we’re making BACON VODKA! Let’s get to it:

Supplies Needed:

  • 1lb bacon
  • 1 liter cheap vodka
  • 1 qt jar
  • Fun packaging

How to:

  1. Cook up your bacon via your preferred method. (I like the oven) Let it cool, and cut the slices you didn’t eat in half ( you know you ate some, and so did everyone else that came through the kitchen, it’s cool).
  2. Put it in the quart jar, fill it with vodka, cap it tight, and shake it up. Put it in a cool dry place for at least 3 days, shaking it up each day.
  3. When you’re ready to “harvest”, stick it in the freezer until the fat freezes.
  4. Now, you have to strain it. I used a coffee filter and a canning funnel.
  5. Put it in a cute package( I used a half pint jar, some raffia, and a tag I made with my Silhouette Sketch Pens), and BOOM you’re done. BACON.FREAKING.VODKA

This stuff is the poo in a Bloody Mary.  Oooooh, you could totally make a fun little Bloody Mary kit with this and some jars of olives and…I gotta go take it up a notch. See you next time!

    YUMMMM – I am working on a brunch plan right now for this weekend. Curious on timing. Does the vodka get better with age? or is 2-3 days sufficient?

      Hi Meg,
      It’s one of those things I’ve never really been able to wait to find out. I imagine it might get a little more “bacon-y” with a few more days to age, but not by much.
