Delicious Bacon Meets Savory Cocktail
The Bacon Bloody Mary Recipe
Bacon Bloody Mary – the perfect balance of food and drink recipe! There are two things that I expect from a good brunch: Bacon and bloody Mary’s! Eggs? Fine. Hash browns? Whatever. There are also two things that I have found to be the best hangover cures: Greasy food and more alcohol. So here it is- the perfect brunch, the perfect hangover cure: the bacon bloody Mary! Serve this at your next brunch and skip the egg bake!
Start by infusing vodka with bacon. To a quart of your favorite vodka, add 3 strips of cooked bacon. Careful not to burn it. Baking on a cookie sheet works well. While you’re at it, cook up some extra. Ever had to throw out leftover bacon? I didn’t think so. Let it infuse for a week or two. (I keep bacon infused vodka on my shelf at all times)
As usual, start by filling a shaker with ice. Next, crack some fresh black pepper over that ice. Now crack some more delicious pepper. It really goes well with this drink. Splash about a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and a dash of celery salt. (go easy on the celery salt. It can be pretty salty. Squeeze 1/4 wedge of fresh lemon, then pour a couple ounces of the bacon infused vodka. Cover with your favorite tomato juice or V-8, if you prefer, and shake it well. Pour drink into a tall frosted glass. Grind one more turn of black pepper and sprinkle with celery salt over the top. This looks nice, but also greets the nose with great smells. Serve with a sprig of freshly cooked bacon and crisp romaine lettuce leaf for garnish. I’ve also served a piece of toast with a light spread of mayonnaise. It’s like a BLT in a glass!
For a beer chaser, I recommend a dark stout or porter.
Whew! Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato..Enjoy the bacon bloody Mary recipe, but not in moderation.
