Bring home the bacon with a fun variation on the classic Bloody Mary cocktail. Easy DIY bacon-infused vodka adds a smoky, savory taste to GEORGE’S® OLD BAY® Bloody Mary Mix that can’t be beat!



4 slices thick-cut bacon

1 bottle (750 milliliters) vodka

2 (1-quart) mason jars

Ice cubes

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.



Test Kitchen Tips:

•Serve in OLD BAY-rimmed beverage glass, if desired.

•Leftover bacon-infused vodka can be used to prepare additional Bacon Infused OLD BAY Bloody Marys or other cocktails.

•Bacon-flavored vodkas can also be purchased at some liquor stores.
