Homemade Bacon Vodka

Sunday, January 20, 2008

making your own bacon flavored vodkaI admit, I can’t remember the singular event that conspired to the creation of this bacon vodka. It came to life this Christmas and found home in a tasting kit of vodkas I made for friends and family. If you have time, bacon and vodka, you too can have this tasty elixir in your hands.

What to do with it you ask? You can give it away as a gift, use it in a Bloody Mary, Make a Bastardized Cloudy Martini (a real martini doesn’t have vodka) with it and a blue cheese stuffed olive. I haven’t tried this one, but I can recognize the appeal of a Pickle Juice Sport made with bacon vodka (that’s pickle juice mixed with vodka).

It is also wonderful when mixed with date syrup for a sweet bacon cordial. It can also be poured into a spray bottle and used to spritz just a touch of smoky bacon flavor to salads, toasts or stews… wherever you want to add a touch of flavor.

Perhaps a dab behind the ears?

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 am allergic to most deodorants and therefore, soak whole nutmegs in everclear to produce a clear brown alcohol which I put into a mister and mist my armpits with it. Works great!

Hi Joe,

While at first sounding like an odd comment for this entry, this sounds like a great idea. If I’m feeling particularly sweaty and stinky at work (in the lab), I’ll often swab isopropyl alcohol as a deodorant. I think adding a bay leaf to your concoction would work well with the nutmeg scent too.

I should have prefaced that paragraph with, in addition to the edible concoctions I make with alcohol….LOL

I also put cinnamon sticks in vodka. Over time, it becomes a rich burgundy alcohol that is great in cakes and pancakes (and syrup!) and so on. Changing topics again… For warts, I put arbor vitae leaves and seeds (it is a tree) in vodka, and put the tincture on the warts. I also have black walnut flavoring that I created by putting whole, un-ripe black walnuts in vodka. This a great addition to chocolate cakes, brownies, cookies, etc. I am always brewing up something.

Interesting – I’ve been working with bacon and alcohol for some time now, but have settled on bourbon as the ideal base. A nice maple-smoked, peppered bacon will do glorious things to a smoky, aged bourbon. Prep is much the same as for the vodka, although I’ve found two weeks is usually enough for the infusion.

Shake it with ice, strain into a martini glass rimmed with hickory salt,add a dash of orange bitters, garnish with an orange peel and pearl onion, and, voila! – The Bacontini!

Oh, hickory salt sounds like a perfect touch.
I enjoy bourbon too much for what it is to bacon-ize it! ;) I seem to have less respect for the intrinsic characteristics of vodka. Poor victimized vodka.

Did you eat the bacon afterwards? Was it any good? Or did it dissolve into the alcohol? What happens to it?!?

I’m ashamed to say, I didn’t eat the used bacon. I presumed it to be exhausted and its appearance helped convince me to give it a retirement.
It didn’t dissolve into the alcohol, it remained whole.

I think it’s safe to say everyone posting is overweight and/or out of shape. How can this possibly sound good? I can’t imagine what someone would make it for–just because? I can’t imagine it tasting good either, and I can’t imagine using it for something else–like a sautee for instance.

Nothing like some good ol’ artery clogging bacon mixed with brain cell killing alcohol. Oh bacon, is there nothing you can’t do?

What’s next? Bacon fat syrup? Bacon butter? Orange juice infused with bacon flavor? And who wants their home to smell like bacon so much you’d make candles?! Unreal. Nothing welcomes you home more than the scent of bacon, eh? LOL!

Scott must be from Canada, EH? LOL. I think he’s jealous because Canadian Bacon is crap compared to what we’re talking about (the real stuff). Don’t get me wrong, Pea-meal is great in it’s own way, like when I want a ham and cornmeal sandwich, but it should never be called “bacon”.
Scott asks, “Oh bacon, is there nothing you can’t do?” People wrap other foods in bacon to make it taste better… so I guess the answer might be “NO, bacon can do everything”.
I didn’t know candles could make you overweight and/or out of shape. I hate candles. Air fresheners, too. What does “Summer Breeze”, “Autumn Rain” or “Ocean Mist” smell like? Give me a scent that I know and enjoy! BACON!!! It reminds me of Sunday Breakfast with my family when I was a kid. That’s a good scent. A scented candle that I would enjoy. I don’t relate to these made-up candle scents. But BACON, MMM, MMM, Good!

Oh my god. Oh my god. I’m amazed that I’ve stumbled upon this mad idea.
At first hearing it sounds very mad. But the more I think about this the more sense it makes.
I’ve never understood what makes people drink tomato juice but thinking about bacon vodka makes me want to experiement with some tomato juice stirred into bacon flavoured vodka.

Many years ago I had chocolate vodka and that was a bitter disappointment as it was finely chopped chocolate thrown into vodka and not the smooth drink I’d imagined.

But bacon vodka, now there’s something that’d turn heads at parties! You could serve it with some thin crispy bacon as nibbles.

I’m going to have to tell everyone at work about how to make bacon vodka!

This sounds totally awesome… and I don’t think you’re picking on vodka. Impossible to pick on it since it has no flavor at all… which is why it’s so wonderful to use it for infusion.

A friend of mine made apple vodka once. Pretty much the same thing you did with the cooked bacon strips, but it was sliced apples. Once it’s infused your vodka will taste like apples.

On Oprah I saw where they had cut a small round hole into a watermelon and poured a whole bottle of vodka in and let it sit in the fridge overnight… when they cut it open the next day, they put a scooper in it and served it that way. I was going to try it, but I was pregnant at the time, but can you guess what I’ll be making this summer? :)

I realize you’re trying to be clever, but try reading properly first.

First off, I’m not Canandian. Secondly, I never said making candles makes you overweight. I said I can’t imagine liking the smell so much you want your home to smell like it. That’s like saying you like the smell of McDonald’s french fries so much that you ask for the used grease, so you can make candles so your home will smell like that. You can just feel the zits forming, can’t you?

And my biggest question, what do you use this bacon for? Just to eat by itself?

First of all, I have read properly.
You stated;
“I think it’s safe to say everyone posting is overweight and/or out of shape.”
It sounds as though you assume that every poster here eats nothing but bacon.
Fred Barron states:
“My friend and I have been working on bacon candles, but the bacon fat melts at a different temp than the candle wax. We’ve settled on bacon fat in a potporrie dish over a candle to infuse the room with bacon scent. Can’t wait to try the vodka and bourbon!”
Not once does he mention eating bacon. This is why I ask if you believe that a bacon scent will make you fat.
Secondly, As for why one would want their home to smell like bacon, I’ve already posted my reason. It reminds me of my childhood at Sunday morning breakfast with my family. I love my family. Maybe ‘bacon scent’ doesn’t bring back memories for you but it does for me, and they’re good memories.
If you don’t like BACON then stay off of this site! Simple, isn’t it? Take your FATBACK somewhere else!

Note to bacon-candle-makers:

You need the TALLOW from your animal of choise, and possibly blend in some bees-wax, to make a more solid candle.
These oldschool candles are not recommended, as they produse soot (ends up in your lungs), and smell of garbage barbeque.
But if you like greasy, sooty, smelly walls, by all means go ahead.

Here in Scandinavia, we infuse in schnapps, but i’ve never heard of this one before.

Oh, regarding the above: the soot will probably clog up your pores and cause zits…

Infusing with pepper corns or chilli peppers, can be recommended.
Also there is an exellent Polish vodka called ZUBROWKA BISON VODKA, which is infused with aromatic wild grass from the Bison-ox habitats of eastern Poland…Sorry, not trying to sell anything.

I made some bacon vodka for an edition of BACON CLUB last year. It was a bit weird by itself. Martinis were pretty good, but the best application was probably in bloody marys.

For a later meeting, I made bacon soda. It was just bacon-infused simple syrup, plus club soda and then you can mix it with any sort of booze you like.

Just decanted my first bottle yesterday. (Absolut)ely amazing. Word to the wise: go easy on the peppercorns; the vodka seems to have a greater affinity for the pepper than for the bacon. Nevertheless, both flavors come through; seems like the perfect drink to go with a plate of smoky spiced meats.

thanks for reporting back!
Sounds wonderful- I’ll add that combo to my next batch.

You need to emphasize the cool, dark resting place to make damn sure bacteria does not grow.

Fruit or vanilla beans, sure, but this is kinda stupid.

Just throw a fresh strip of bacon in your bloody and take illness or death out of the equation.

A cool dark place doesn’t need emphasizing.
Alcohol does; alcohol kills bacteria.
from FDA website:

Some people say that alcohol or vinegar can kill bacteria. Is this true?
Yes, ethanol and isopropyl alcohol and vinegar, which is an acetic acid, do kill bacteria.

Ethanol alcohol at 70% is more effective at killing bacteria than at 90 to 100% because the alcohol gets inside the cell better. Isopropyl alcohol is even more effective at killing bacteria because it is less volatile. While alcohol is a good disinfectant for inactivating many bacteria, it will not inactivate bacterial spores that are resistant. At acidic pH levels, many bacteria are inactivated by vinegar (acetic acid).

However, having just tried a shot of bacon vodka that I made following your recipe, I regret to report that I nearly threw up. I am sure the blame in this lies with my own feeble efforts at making the recipe, rather than the recipe itself. But dear God, I am suffering now.

I made it and served it this past weekend. Several people who claimed not to like bloody marys loved them with the bacon vodka. Not one person said they didn’t like it. It didn’t have an overwhelming bacon flavor so it really just enhanced the cocktails. It certainly smelled like bacon though!

I put it in the freezer the night before and only had the tiniest amount of solidified fat. (I used center cut bacon and baked it so the fat was pretty much gone before I started.) I strained it through a paper towel three times and it was still yellowy colored but not too murky.

It was a hit, and I will make it again! Next I want to try ginger vodka.

Inspired by your Bacon Vodka I made a “Bacon Vodka Kit” for a friend’s 40th birthday — he makes a fabulous Ginger Liqueur and other interesting concoctions.
I included your instructions (giving you credit of course), a bottle of vodka, fresh bacon, and since i’m an artist, custom designed labels for him to use on his bottles.
Nothing as elegant as yours, just a little something whimsical.

Anyway, here is the label, if you or your readers would be interested in using it for their own concoctions!

I’m just misunderstanding; strain through a coffee filter? Like the ? And how can I strain something that’s frozen?

I was referring to a french coffee press, I was thinking about just dumping the mix in it and press filtering out the bacon and bits..

Don’t overcomplicate the process- just try it if you are interested. Vodka doesn’t freeze, hence how you can put it in the freezer and then strain out the solidified fats (which do freeze). Strain with what ever you like.

Tip to anyone who plans on infusing vodka with ANYTHING… including bacon… instead of cheesecloth use a water filter (i use brita). it works a hundred times better than cheesecloth :) I’ve infused vodka with many things, however, never bacon… kudos!

Also, being from Canada, I find it absurd why American meat companies decide to label Ham as Canadian Bacon. We have it up here and call it…. HAM. We do also have Bacon, which wierdly enough is called, BACON. I have to mention this due to it not being clarified before. But kudos for the article and instructions, think I’m gonna make this with my next pay cheque.

I like the vodka idea but any idea how to extract the bacon flavor without the alcohol I want to brew a hickory smoked bacon beer but the vodka would likley kill the yeast and the fat from the bacon would kill the beer. any ideas??

A couple ideas:

- if you’re going to keg your beer (and not cask condition it), make the bacon vodka and simply pour it into the beer (think of the vodka like a bacon extract). Dosing your finished beer with the bacon vodka will be a low enough amount of added alcohol that the yeast will likely be able to tolerate.

- use a yeast appropriate for a higher alcohol content beer (like barely wine) for adding larger amounts of the bacon vodka as a bacon extract.

- emulate the flavors of bacon with out the bacon itself (which would be very unsanitary in brewing conditions) by dry hoping your beer with peppercorns, and liquid smoke or smoked hops.

- go for a cold smoke treatment- rausch beer?

- and a final idea: smoking it and then aging in a whiskey barrel like this Whiskey Barrel Smoked Porter

Interesting ideas Chris- keep me posted on your process and success!

I’m not sure you need to leave it for 3 weeks. Other articles on a technique called fat-washing seem to imply the flavor transfer is pretty quick. The bacon flavor is not leaching out of the bacon (like it is w/ fruit infusions) its coming from mixing w/ the rendered fat. So I just let it sit one day before freezing and filtering out the solid fats.

I tried this mostly for the huge WTF factor of infusing vodka w/ bacon, but i was pretty grossed out when i took a sip. I love bacon, but I guess I am just not into salty liquor. Roommate loves bloody marys so hopefully it will not be a total waste.

Once a year I make bloody marys for a music festival. Every year I do something different, last year was basil, and I didn’t cook my tomato base and went for a more raw approach. I also used bacon as stir sticks for my bloodies. This is, by far, the best stir stick I have tried and was widely popular.

This year I am lightening things up and making heirloom tomato water instead of tomato juice. Tomatoes, onion, salt, lemongrass, garlic, habaneros and a drop of agave nectar. Add this to bacon infused vodka, and I think I’m in heaven.

Thanks for the tips on making the bacon infusion. However, here is a tip for you. Don’t ever use V8 in a bloody again. Take some time, get some Worcestershire sauce, a horseradish root, and some peppers (or a plain old habanero hot sauce with just vinegar and maybe some lime as the only other ingredients). V8 kills a bloody and most likely buried your bacon vodka essence too deep in the flavor-spectrum.

AVOID THIS RECIPE AT ALL COSTS. My batch just reached the ripe old age of 3 weeks yesterday, so I froze and strained it. It was beyond terrible. No one got sick, but no one could finish more than a sip or two. We also took a bite of the pickled bacon – HUGE mistake.

I threw it in the garbage disposal. The garbage disposal was all “OH HELLS NO” and started power barfing all over the floor. The floor started dissolving and since this was 12 hours ago, by now there should be a pissed off family in mainland China wondering why pork-flavored sludge is bubbling up through the bottom of their basement.

I hope for their sake they don’t taste it.

Loving both vodka and bacon I think I’ll have to try this, the decorative bottle gifts idea is a nice one too might do some for my parents and take the risk that they will disown me ;)

Bacon and vodka? Not only did my heart just skip a beat, but I fear the Grim Reaper may have gotten a little closer to my doorstep. I am frying up the pork right now. In 3 weeks I’m sure I will find the trouble to be worth it!

I made the bacon infused bourbon and it’s fantastic. I used melted bacon fat instead of whole pieces of cooked bacon. I’m going to try the same thing with vodka. Will let you know how it works out. You can read my recipe on my blogspot for August 8th.

I may have missed it, but did you also add the bacon drippings (along with the strips) from the pan to the jar before letting it sit? Because I did…and if I shouldn’t, I’ll start over!
