A Seattle company, Black Rock Spirits, has finally concluded two years of recipe testing based on the concept of "meat and potatoes" (bacon and Idaho russets, that is), and they've officially launched Bakon Vodka: "Pure. Refreshing. Bacon."Meanwhile, if you want to see how bacon is properly infused into alcohol, so as to not to have grease bubbles floating in your drink, you should check out this short video of an Old Fashioned made with bacon-infused bourbon. The video features Don Lee crafting the drink — he's Manhattan's buzzed-about bartender of the moment, having just teamed up with David Chang to bring an inventive new cocktail program to the already obsessively creative Momofuku Ssäm Bar.
