If you have a deep love or general obsession with bacon, or if you're one of the vegetarians turned carnivore again because you couldn't refuse the tasty deliciousness of bacon anymore, then this Instructable is for you.
This how-to will give you a simple way to infuse vodka with the savory flavor of freshly cooked bacon. Oh yeah, and you can have this scrumptious flavor in less than an hour! There are other ways to get bacon infused vodka, but this one is quick and gets you the same taste without having to wait a week or two.
What you'll need to for this project to bring your taste buds and Bloody Marys to a whole new level:
- 1 package of bacon of your choice (I recommend thick cut because it equals more bacon grease)
- Cutting board
- Sharp knife
- Stove top or hot plate
- Glass pitcher, NOT PLASTIC, or sizeable equivalent (pitcher will really help when it comes time to pour)
- Some sort of filter - like a mesh strainer or a grease guard that you put on top of bacon while it's cooking. I suppose you could also use a coffee filter too.
- Glass container of sufficient size to hold your final product
Step 1: Cut Bacon
Open up your package of bacon, and begin to slice it into smallish pieces, about 1/2" x 1/2"
