Bacon Vodka

makes up one pint
Fry up three strips of bacon.
Add cooked bacon to a clean pint sized mason jar. Trim the ends of the bacon if they are too tall to fit in the jar. Or you could go hog wild and just pile in a bunch of fried up bacon scraps. Optional: add crushed black peppercorns.
Fill the jar up with vodka. Cap and place in a dark cupboard for at least three weeks. That’s right- I didn’t refrigerate it.
At the end of the three week resting period, place the bacon vodka in the freezer to solidify the fats. Strain out the fats through a coffee filter to yield a clear filtered pale yellow bacon vodka.
Decant into decorative bottles and enjoy.
I think that I might try to do this, but I would consider scaling up and maybe use cheap vodka and several passes of a carbon filter.

I wouldn't use a carbon filter, it will strip out too much of the bacon flavor. Normally with vodka that's a good thing. Maybe filter the vodka first?

Bacon makes me a bad Jew. It's irresistible.

You could try dry hopping pork rinds. Perhaps some bacon bits in the last 5 minutes of your boil.

Uhm.. try this and report back to me.

I made up a batch of this two weeks ago - it's got one more week of conditioning to go. At the moment it looks pretty disgusting, with tiny globules of fat floating around in it, but once it's filtered I'm hoping it'll be presentable.
