Sales of bacon-flavored vodka sizzling
Last Update: 5/25 5:44 pm

SEATTLE, WA--Call it breakfast in a booze bottle. Bacon-flavored vodka is the all the rage in Seattle and sales are sizzling. At about $30 a bottle it's selling like hotcakes with a side of bacon-flavored vodka.

My first reaction was ewww, says Brittney Levang, who sampled a bacon-bloody Mary at Von's Roast House in downtown Seattle. But then I tried it. It's pretty good.

Seattle-based Black Rock Spirits cooked up the concept of “Bakon Vodka.” It's inspiring bartenders across the city to concoct cocktails that reflect peoples' passion for pork.

There is a real fanatical following for bacon products and bacon in general. People love bacon, says Black Rock Spirits sales director Stefan Schachtell.

Recipes include a bacon-bloody Mary, and a bacon-chocolate martini. (So, in case you’re wondering, bacon vodka apparently isn't just for breakfast.)

Since the recent relaxation of liquor regulations in Washington, the state's Liquor Control Board has approved licenses for five new distilleries over the past year, and up to 13 more are brewing.

Add those to the 17 already in Oregon and competition is getting fierce.

The vodka market is overflowing with fruity infusions from watermelon to pomegranate.

But Bakon Vodka appears to have cornered the meat market.

"I mean, who doesn't like bacon?" said one server at Von's. "And vodka. It's a good mix. Why not?"

On my short detour through maine, I encountered bacon gum. I didn't try it, but I can assure you everyone else thought it was positively disgusting.

There was a pizza box at Rogers labelled PEPPERONI AND BACON.

It was empty.

I took the last slice. :) Sorry. :( As a consolation, here is a picture of cooking bacon @ PorcFest (actually, more like boiling in its own fat).

Not to pick nits, but when you boil something in grease, it's called "frying".  ;D I'm from the South. We know all about the frying.

If it makes you feel any better, on Sunday I fried up bacon, then fried green tomatoes in the bacon grease.

Yummmm!  ;D
