The scoop on bacon vodka
I did it.
I drank ... drum roll please ... bacon vodka. At Capt. Larry's.
You: So, stop stalling and tell us how it tasted, Sessa!
Do you know those dog treats Beggin Strips? That's what it reminded me of.
Not to say I've eaten Beggin Strips. But I've smelled them.
And, oddly enough, they were the first thing to come to mind when I did the shot.
If I were reviewing bacon vodka for the New York Times, I would describe it thusly:
"The drink had a robust, meaty aroma that pleased the palette, grounded by a sharp undercurrent of liquor. It will surely stimulate the senses of breakfast aficionados."
