More bacon cocktails.... Yes!

December 11, 2008 | 11:45 am

Baconmartini Had the group over to watch the USC-UCLA game Saturday, and what did they want? Candied bacon martinis.

I was more than happy to oblige.

Now, while I'm always happy to fix a cocktail -- especially one garnished with candied bacon -- I must admit I started craving something more. Bacon is not a one-note food, magical creation that it is, and I felt a bit bad that I had only one alcoholic vehicle in which to showcase it... until now.

Got an e-mail from Kelly Hightower, Cocktails Examiner at Examiner.com. She did a series on bacon cocktails (how cool is that!) exploring a number of creative suggestions and recipes for cocktails and bacon. The list includes variations on the Bloody Mary, bourbon and coke, old-fashioned, multiple martinis and even a take on the tequila sunrise (she calls it a "Mexican Bacontini").

Haven't tested any of the recipes myself yet, but they sound delicious.  Guess I have my work cut out this weekend....
