Equipment

  • rimmed baking sheet
  • aluminum foil
  • parchment paper
  • paper towels
  • 9- by 13-inch baking dish
  • Cutting board
  • kitchen knife
  • funnel
  • large measuring cup
  • printable full sheet labels

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound regular sliced smoked bacon, crisply cooked and well drained
  • 1 750 ml bottle vodka

Instructions
 

  • Crumble or chop the cooked, cooled bacon into small pieces and spread it in a 9 by 13-inch baking dish.
  • Pour all of the vodka over the bacon. Tightly cover the dish with plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate for 5 days, stirring occasionally.
  • Set a mesh strainer over a large glass or ceramic bowl. Strain the vodka to remove the bacon pieces, which you can discard since all the bacony flavor has transferred to the vodka.
  • Pour the vodka in a large glass measuring cup or pitcher. Line the strainer with 2 pieces of cheesecloth, set over the bowl, and strain the vodka again to remove any remaining fat.
  • Pour the bacon infused vodka back in the bottle. Affix a label if you like. Store in the refrigerator.

Notes

Bacon vodka will keep in the refrigerator in a sealed glass container for at least 6 months.
