More Bacon

From the fine folks at Slashfood :

Here is yet another concoction to add to our ever-growing list of things that bacon is not normally found in, yet contain bacon anyway: bacon martinis. Unlike some of our previous finds, however, a bacon martini doesn’t even really sound appetizing. It is made with the following method: “Lightly mist martini glass with vermouth, and rim the edge with bacon grease. In a cocktail shaker, mix 3oz vodka, one dash Tabasco, and one dash olive juice. Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. Skim excess bacon grease from surface of cocktail. Garnish with one slice of bacon.” It’s hard to say whether the recipe was intended to be a joke because there are definitely bacon lovers out there who would give this a try at least once. Perhaps the question we should be asking is what to serve such a cocktail with. It might be too salty if served with nuts or other classic bar food, and there is no way that it would pair well with a dessert. It might add a bit of bacon flavor to an otherwise plain steak, but the only other viable option is with an egg dish at breakfast. After all, if you’re willing to toss back some bacon martinis in the first place, you probably won’t have a problem doing it in the morning.

Somebody is going to have to give it a try because I don’t have that much courage.
