Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
4 slices thick-cut bacon
1 bottle (750 milliliters) vodka
2 (1-quart) mason jars
6 ounces (3/4 cup) GEORGE’S® OLD BAY® Bloody Mary Mix
To make bacon-infused vodka, cook bacon in medium skillet on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan; drain on paper towels. Reserve bacon drippings.
Divide vodka evenly among 2 clean mason jars. (Save empty vodka bottle.) Add 2 slices of the cooked bacon and 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings into each jar. Cover jars tightly with lid; shake until well mixed. Refrigerate 2 days or up to 1 week to extract bacon flavor into vodka.
Remove bacon from jars. Strain bacon-infused vodka through cheesecloth or coffee filter into empty vodka bottle to store.
To make 1 Bacon Infused OLD BAY® Bloody Mary, fill 1 tall beverage glass half full with ice. Pour 6 ounces (3/4 cup) Bloody Mary Mix and 2 ounces (1/4 cup) bacon-infused vodka into glass; stir well. Garnish with 1 slice of freshly cooked crisp bacon and 1 OLD BAY® seasoned celery stalk, if desired.
Makes 1 serving.
