bakon-vodkaSo we all know bacon has been infused with all kinds of liquors. Hell, I made Bacon Bourbon more than once myself. Until now these have just been recipes concocted at home or in America’s swankiest bars, but no longer! Bacon has entered the world of commercially distilled and distributed vodka. I give you BAKON!

Let’s face it, putting bacon and grease in your vodka, freezing it, straining it multiple times…it’s a big hassle. Thanks to the folks at Bakon, you can now make your Bacon Bloody Mary with only a small effort on your part. And, as they point out, a Bacon Martini would be a perfect complement (or marinade) for a big, juicy steak. You can find┬áseveral great looking recipes on their site.

The good news: this new wonder drug will be available in April 2009. The bad news: it’s only available in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Because no state does cosmopolitan cocktail bars like Idaho and Montana. If you just can’t wait to find out when it will be available in your state, go to their site and give them your email and they’ll keep you posted. Bakon Vodka for everyone!!
