Bacon Party

Because I <3 Bacon

Vodka and Paraphernalia

Posted by Garth Gutenberg on February 27, 2008

Today I’m making the decision to keep this blog up-to-date even if it doesn’t involve pictures or anything fancy. The reason for this is that (as some of you readers may know) I’m currently computerless, save for my smartphone and Mike’s Eee PC, neither of which makes for very robust blog posts. But, I will persevere.

So last night Mike and I began the process of bacon vodka. I realize that it won’t actually get to infuse for a full 3 weeks, but I think 2.5 is sufficient. Mike filmed the process and in addition to seeing it in his bacumentary I will be posting clips when he gets around to doing some editing. In the meantime, here’s a pic of what the bacon vodka looks like on day 2:

And here’s a closeup of the bacony, peppercorny goodness:


Looks pretty … um … gross. I know. But once it’s infused, stuck in the freezer to solidify the fat, and strained using a coffee filter we should end up with some tasty bacony vodka.

As for paraphernalia, here’s a pic of everything I’ve collected over the years:


Here we have some BLT scented candles (individual bacon, lettuce and tomato scents), a pig-shaped bacon press (for keeping the bacon flat in the frying pan), some bacon band-aids, three different varieties of bacon salt (Original, Peppered and Hickory), bacon toilet paper (just has bacon print on it… not actually made of bacon), bacon-flavored toothpicks, bacon mints, a bacon ornament (that we will use as a mistletoe replacement at the partay), and some bacon luggage tags (we considered using these as name tags at the party, but I only have 6 so I’m gonna save them and use them on actual luggage in the near future).

Admittedly the only thing that’s edible here is the salt, but I still think that it should all round out the bacon party well. Maybe I’ll make some bacony streamers or something as well. As for the salt, I had a turkey sandwich last night and added some of the peppered flavor. It was a great addition to the sandwich and adds very little in the way of bad-for-you stuff (it’s just salt after all). Yet it definitely added a bacony flavor. To paraphrase Ferris Bueller, it is so choice. If you have the means I highly recommend picking some up.
