Bacon... continued


So I live in a bacon obsessed town. Really. Here in Portland, we've got VooDoo Doughnuts doing a Maple Bacon doughnut (not so good, I've had it and they use cheap bacon), Le Pigeon doing a bacon cornbread dessert, and my favorite brunch place, the Screen Door, doing a praline bacon thats to die for. Last night, I threw the bacon/everclear mix (after it was strained off) in the freezer, wrapped it in saran wrap, and forgot about it until today.

When I got home today, I opened the door to the freezer, and rather than a thin layer of fat on top of the alcohol, which is what I expected, I instead found the awful mess pictured above. I thought something had gone horribly wrong, but I though to myself, "What the hell, put it through a coffee filter and see if you can salvage it", and damn if I didn't. The fat had basically almost formed veins in the liquid while it was in the freezer, and when I put it through a coffee filter, it took the fat right out, leaving me with a pale golden liquor with a very nice bacon scent.

Tomorrow, I'm going to use the bacon everclear to make my mother in law's recipe for german eggnog (for the record, I seriously have the best mother in law anyone could ever have. She's a great cook and has a wonderful sense of humor). I think the bacon will add an extra dimension to the eggnog. If not, well, I've already gone too far not to share the results with you. I should have some of the bacon everclear left over too, and I'm thinking of doing a BLT concept. Maybe bacon everclear, lettuce juice (can you juice lettuce or is it just water?) and maybe garnish it with a cherry tomato. Or maybe the bacon everclear with tomato water and lettuce juice. Its too early to think too much about it.

Hmmm... maybe you could blend yourself up a lettuce pesto to dollop on top.

I also think you should try blending the baconclear with some sort of melon liqueur. Prosciutto-wrapped melon works for the Italians.

Hell, it's bacon. It'll go with ANYTHING. I'd base my experiments on which drinks give you the best names - I mean, you can have a Hamhattan, a Bloody Porky, a Bacontini. A PIG AND TONIC! The options are limitless.

Oddly, I just made myself hungry.

My friends tried to make a bacon drink last year at Bacon Day (internationalbaconday.blogspot.com) with a melon liqueur and it was disgusting. On the other hand we do garnish our bloody mary's in the morning with a slice of bacon. This next year I think we'll have to try making the vodka infused with bacon to make the drinks, that sounds amazing. Thanks for the tips!
