Before our recent trip to Vegas, I happened to see a segment on Drinking Made Easy about a place called the Double Down Saloon - the home of the Bacon Infused Vodka Martini.
Many places have followed bacon trend, but the Double Down was the first to mix a little oink with their Stoli.
And this is how it's done:
Bacon Infused Vodka Martini
1 Bottle of Vodka
5 - 6 strips of crispy bacon
1 Large Mason Jar
Place the bacon and vodka in the large jar and store in the fridge for several days or up to a week**. Strain the mixture and return to the jar or bottle. Serve shaken with ice in a chilled martini glass
**Note: The bacon will go back to looking raw after sitting in the liquid for several days, but it is totally fine and still completely cooked.
And if this seems to scary to you, try using the infused vodka your standard Bloody Mary. It's like breakfast in a glass. Yummo!!
