Rejoice my fellow bacon lovers, for now with the infusion of vodka you can enjoy an amazing bacon flavored Bloody Mary...bacon and chocolate martini....bacon and maple syrup martini...or just by itself on ice with all of its wonder.
It is true, there are bacon infused vodkas out there in the market, but the main fault of these products is the taste and feel of grease and oil that come with them.
This instructable will show you how to infuse vodka with bacon but also remove the oil so all your left with is just the salty and smokey flavor of yummy yummy bacon.
This is my first instructable and I'm shooting for the Bacon contest....so if you like it, please vote!
Step 1: Materials Needed
VODKA - 1 liter should suffice - and with all cooking...the quality of the ingredients will effect the final product. I'm not saying you need to go crazy at the liquor store, but I wouldn't recommend anything that comes in a plastic bottle
CONTAINER WITH LID
COFFEE FILTERS (OR SIMILAR)
Step 2: The Melding Begins...
For the infusion I used bacon that was cooked to where it was still flexible and wouldn't crumble.
Just place all of the bacon in the container with the vodka, close lid and let sit for 4-5 days at room temperature (infusions work better at room temperature and the alcohol will keep you safe)
