Moonshine Bloody Mary with Bacon Cube
Here’s a bloody that’ll sear a hole right through your Sunday morning. Garnished with a bacon cube! What’s not to love.
Now there are two schools of thought on bloodies. Regular vodka, gently garnished with a celery stalk, or maybe a carrot stick if it’s getting crazy.
And then there’s the rest of us – rolling with tequila, absinthe, pepper vodka, and/or limoncello — and our bloodies lean more toward boozy salad than cocktail. Olives, fennel, pepperoncini, spicy green beans, cucumber batons. Pickled okra. Cippolini onions. Chunks of provolone.
So it’s a long weekend, what better time for a bloody. Got some moonshine hanging around from when we did the moonshine lemonade. And a hunk of slab bacon. I spy a bloody getting itself together…
The bacon cubes were pretty easy, fashioned from the thick end of a piece of slab bacon, seared nicely on each side. Skewered warm with a bamboo pick, balanced atop the zombie glass.
And the White Lightning gives a nice little burn to the proceedings.
p.s. Don’t make a whole lot of plans for later.
