We had big plans for that Bakon Vodka all along. And here it is, named after Warrensburg's own iconic Oscar's Adirondack Smokehouse - The Bloody Oscar. The garnishments were procured today: Oscar's Hickory Smoked Bacon Cheddar Cheese and Jerry's Jerky. I stopped in to make the purchases and couldn't resist telling then what we were up to. They hadn't heard of Bakon Vodka (or Happy Hour in the High Peaks), but I think they're in the smokehouse now, trying to find a recipe for SMOKED bacon vodka. Or, they might be in there just smoking vodka. This recipe is destined for the final publication.
2 oz Bakon Vodka
6 oz tomato juice
1 tsp horseradish
1 tsp lemon juice
1 dash tabasco
1 dash black pepper
1 pinch red pepper flakes
Shake with ice and serve over ice. Garnish with celery and your favorite tidbits from Oscar's Smokehouse.
