|bleh! Bacon fat.|
After two weeks of infusiiiiing the vodka, our baconator brew was finally ready. Now the bacon had formed a disgusting layer of bacon fat and crud on the top of the vodka. This fun layer of filth necessitated a filtration process. After being unable to find cheesecloth (damn you Sasksatchewan!) we elected for coffee filters (see exciting process on the right).
|hello yellow! bleh x2|
Even if you can't imagine drinking bacon (few are noble enough), this bacon-vodka (badka? vodcon? baconvka?) IS perfect for is caesars. Bacon jalapeno caesar - HELLO! Use this vodka to make yourself a fancy caesar and you win at life - a god amongst men (and women). This is the Eli Manning of caesars - rich, tasty (?), and mostly just a little bit weird. Once it's in a caesar it's definitely a 5/5.
The other vodka - lemongrass and ginger - worked exceptionally well. Less excitingly as it didn't change colours or taste overwhelmingly of pork, however it was good straight. Next time I might add a little more lemongrass, but this stuff is really good. You could drink it in a martini or with soda water, whatever. No bacon, but still pretty damn great.
The only problem facing us at the moment is that neither of us drink vodka. HMM.
