Bacon is very versatile.
WhiskeyFirst: Choose a Whiskey.
BaconSecond: Melt bacon fat; you know - the stuff you've been saving from months of breakfasts.
Whiskey + BaconThird: Pour this deliciousness into the whiskey. NOTE! You will have to remove the same volume of whiskey from the bottle. Say, two ounces. Don't worry, I won't watch.
ChillFourth: Chill for a day or so.
DRINKFifth: DRINK! NOTE! You may want to skim the solid bits from the bottle. If you don't, I wont judge you. At all.

...I sense much potential in this idea!

Thank NPR for bringing the idea to my attention!

Word of warning, a roommate and I tried bacon vodka a few years back. It was disgusting, and not because we did it wrong - vodka + bacon was just Not Very Good.

Maybe with whiskey it's different.

Yeah, whiskey has the sweet and peaty thing going for it that makes me think it will work. Proportion matters too and I'm being careful.

Also: negative nelly. No bacon whiskey for you. Naaaa

I love the way whiskey smells, but it's not my first preference, alcohol-wise. I'm learning to enjoy it though - what whiskeys do you recommend?

What do you like in alcohol? Do you like sweet? Savory? Mellow? Rough?

Most of the time, I prefer a sweeter, smoother drink and tend towards blended whiskeys or single malt scotches - Johnny Walker, Yamazaki. Bourbons I prefer longer aged to add some smoke and decadence to the sweetness - Woodford reserve, 1776, Rip Van Winkle 20 year.

Things that make you go "Hmmmm"

Things that make your arteries go "Doooooom"

Well, you're not getting much extra fat. The alcohol dissolves the flavor compounds from the bacon and you skim the fat off after it's sat. Some probably stays in there, but not much.

Sounds like it would make for a good cooking agent in that case, although speaking as a fellow holding back on his bacon intake and not much of a drinker to begin, I don't see it appealing to me beyond some interesting new recipes...
abmann From: abmann Date: July 28th, 2010 01:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
It would make an excellent sauce or gastrique. :D

Bluephie's (on Monroe St) does a Bloody Mary with bacon vodka, served with a whole piece of bacon, and a whole chunk of string cheese. I've heard it's excellent.
