Bacon and Pepper Infused Vodka Recipe

Bacon makes everything better, even vodka. Add to it a spicy jalapeno for kicks and it’s delicious revelry! If you love food and drinks that makes your mouth burn and my nose run, like me, this is a perfect vodka recipe for you. The spicier, the better! Make this spicy alcohol for a perfect blood mary or a soda.

 I love heat. All forms of it. I love sweating profusely as I lie on the beach and I love wrapping a warm blanket around myself while I lounge on the couch (neither happens often enough). My love for heat applies to food, as well. I love food that makes my mouth burn and my nose run. The spicier, the better!

When I read about the new trend involving infusing vodka with flavor, my first thought was that I wanted to try adding heat as my "flavor." I researched vodka infusion and found that creating spicy vodka is not uncommon! So, thinking in terms of a good spicy base for a bloody mary, I purchased three of the hottest peppers available at the grocery store and I kindly asked my husband to fry me up some bacon (for some reason, this is always a task he does).

PREPARING BACON & PEPPER INFUSED VODKA

Deliciously hot, you’ll love to sweat through a drink with this combination!

LETS'S GET STARTED -

In a large jar, add:

  • Two slices of peppered bacon, cooked

  • 1 serrano pepper, halved

  • 1 green chile pepper, halved

  • 1 habanero pepper, halved

I poured vodka over the bacon and peppers until the jar was almost full (somewhere around 32 oz. of vodka). I used a middle shelf vodka. There's no need to go top shelf, but I tend to stay away from the bottom shelf, as well.

And then I screwed the lid on tight and put the jar in my garage, where it is dark and cool. And dirty. But nevermind the dirty part.

TIPS ABOUT INFUSING THE VODKA

  • Store the vodka concoction as it absorbs the peppery, meaty flavors for up to 48 hours. If you love spice like I do, 48 hours is the perfect amount of time for the infusion. If you like just a little bit of spice, cut that time back to 24 hours.

  • Once you are ready to enjoy the flavors of your vodka, place a coffee filter over a hand mesh strainer and pour the vodka through into a glass jar. It’s ready to serve!

At the end of the 48 hours, my concoction SMELLED hot, so I was afraid to taste it. I took a tiny little sip and it was most definitely hot, but also full of flavor! For me, this will always be an addition to Bloody Marys. I don't plan to drink it alone or mix it with anything else. It is, through and through, a Bloody-Mary-Only Vodka.

Now that you have this amazing vodka prepared, you want to make a bloody mary, am I right? Of course you do!

This is the easy and FUN part!

CREATE THE PERFECT SPICY BLOODY MARY

Fill your mason jar glass with ice and add in this order: bacon and pepper infused vodka, bloody mary mix, pickle juice and Worcestershire sauce. Stir. Add desired condiments on a stick and try not to eat them until they are all displayed for aesthetics purposes.

Best served as a brunch cocktail.
