Sweet Drinkable Bacon

April 28th, 2008 by Mike Nelson · 17 Comments

I try to put aside time every day to eat bacon, but some days, what with my having to occasionally speak without bacon slurry in my mouth, and having to be around people who, God forbid, don’t find the sight of me munching down slice after slice to be charming or even desirable to watch at all, AND with my having to carve out time to get hammered, well, some days I’m barely able to eat more than a few pounds. That’s why I’m thankful for the Bacontini.


A recipe over at asks that you rim the edge of the glass with bacon grease. I believe that’s the first time I’ve ever read the word “grease” in a drink recipe.

This book, Good Spirits: Recipes, Revelations, Refreshments, and Romance, Shaken and Served with a Twist, has the lowdown on the creation of the bacontini and a recipe that omits the grease.

    A drink that can destroy your liver, kill brain cells, AND harden your arteries all at the same time!

    Wow, I cannot wait to get my own.

    Hey, the Bacontini totally sizzles — I’m off to hunt down a copy of High Spirits and see what else that crazy dude has on his cocktail menu.

    First the world’s ending, and now this… are you feeling alright Mike?

    What better to toast the end of the world than a Bacontini?

    And on the subject of bacon…

    Maybe you’re not familiar with my religion, ya know, Jewism. We have to wait until these guys accomplish their goal.

    That’s good, Mike. It would be even better made with Bacon Vodka.

    How come nobody has come up with bacon-flavoured orange juice?

    I think I just saw God…..He is truly magnificant.

    …………And now I can’t get the ubermaniacal, funhouse-esque jingle from Udder Delight out of my head.

    Damn you, Nelson!

    The Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas has been serving their signature “Bacon Martini” for years now. Granted, their other signature drink is called “Ass Juice,” but hey, points for being first with the swiny spirits.

    Our local bagel shop in Vermont sells cream cheese with bacon. And bagels incorporating bacon. It is truly the ultimate breakfast. Tie that in with a bacon frappacino and you’re living… for a little while.

    I have always enjoyed the smooth flavor of Absolute BA-CON’ myself

    I’ll have two scoops of bacon sorbet sprinkled with bacon bits served in a bacon cone. I admit it. I wear bacon underwear! You can never be too careful and leave your precious bacon at home. My preciousssss! Bacon, that is. No rings of power or binding or elves. Besides, don’t get me started on elvish bacon! Legolas may wield a wicked bow, but his bacon lambis bread recipe isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

    That. Is. Awesome.
