If I add enough tomato juice, I may be able to swallow it…

September 18, 2009

in random

To recap: I embarked on an experiment to concoct my own bacon vodka, an one-woman moonshine operation on August 30.  The mason jar was wrapped in 3 layers of plastic bags and I had not been able to muster enough courage to peek inside it.  What was I afraid that I might see floating in the jar?

Alien babies?

Van Gogh’s ear?

Mundane green goo?

Tadpoles? (I have a REAL, as opposed to fake…, phobia against frogs so that would indeed be part of my worst nightmares…)

I can’t really tell ya.  The fact is: I didn’t take a look at my concoction until two weeks afterwards, and it looked like this:

bacon vodka 2nd week checkin 225x300 If I add enough tomato juice, I may be able to swallow it...

As opposed to how it looked in the very beginning:

bacon vodka 020 225x300 If I add enough tomato juice, I may be able to swallow it...

I am not sure I will be brave enough to put it anywhere near my mouth or nose, to be completely honest…

One more week to go, my friends.  In the mean time, let’s read about the Bacon Beer, shall we?

“We just about lost it when we heard Brooklyn Brewery brew master Garrett Oliver was working on a beer made from Benton’s Country Smokehouse bacon, and now it’s a reality.

The catch is: You’ll have to pay $350 for a taste of Reinschweinsgebot, as Oliver is calling it.”

Ugh. People in New York City slay me.  $350 for a sip of that beer?  Forget it.  Give me enough tomato juice and add a lot of alcohol, I should be able to swallow my DIY bacon vodka when the time comes.

Stay tuned.  Oh, and you are ALL invited to the launch cum tasting party!

There isn’t enough money let alone tomato juice in the world to make me even take the lid off that jar. One question…..why? Also I can’t believe you used cum and tasting in the same sentence. I laugh until I cried.

omg…what were you planning to do with bacon flavored vodka? i cant imagine drinking it or cooking with it, except maybe in like a vodka sauce for pasta? truly a novel idea albeit one that sends shivers down my spine.

@ passions and soapboxes
OMG. I honestly, I swear (if swearing is ok by you…), didn’t see that… LOL. But I guess it not beyond me to do that on purpose…

I am sorry if you all gagged when you saw the pictures. LOL. I do need to decant the whole thing and freeze it or something to separate the “fat” from the vodka. I think today is the day to do so. I will keep you all updated through my blog. :-) Thank you all for visiting!
