Bacon in your booze
Since the idea for Bacon Salt started with a bourbon and bacon drink called the Mitch Morgan, it’s appropriate that people are sending in drink recipes as part of the recipe contest. Here are just a couple:
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1 cup Spicy Hot V8 Juice or standard tomato juice
1/2 teaspoon of Peppered Bacon Salt (or to taste)
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Worcestershire sauce to taste
Tabasco to taste
1/2 teaspoon of prepared horse radish (or to taste, optional)
1 crispy slice of bacon for garnish (place across the rim not in the
1 lemon wedge for garnish
(thanks to Robert for sending that in)
Yes, a shot that does taste like bacon, sent in by Robin, who served it at a 16,000 person event – and ran out quickly. I tried quite a few of these last night after my fantasy football draft party, and think that Hickory was the best but all of them were good from what I can remember – it’s all a little foggy.
my favorite recipe so far has to be:
one part Vodka
one part water
Bacon Salt to taste
We created the shot as a joke, but it cought on quick. It was a shot that tasted just like bacon, and people loved it (hundreds of people). And soon, I was out of Bacon Shots, and Bacon Salt.
A few other people have suggested Bacon Salt-rimmed margaritas and we’ve done the bourbon, water and Bacon Salt combo (a mock Mitch Morgan) a couple of times now as well. If you have other great drinks, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org!
