Looking for a way to celebrate President’s Day? Having a bunch of people over to reenact the crossing of the Delaware? If so, you need to make Washington’s Drunken Gummy Cherries!!!
What you will need:
Russian Standard Vodka (or any good vodka that doesn’t have a strong flavor)
Haribo Gummy Cherries
A glass dish or container
Place the gummy cherries in the glass dish. I used a 9x11 Pyrex baking dish because the cherries can be spread out in a single layer, but you can use any glass bowl, dish, or container.
Add Russian Standard Vodka
Completely cover the cherries and make sure there is an extra inch or two of vodka in the dish. These gummy cherries absorb a great deal of vodka.
Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for 4-5 days. Make sure to stir every 8-12 hours and add more vodka if needed. Remember you cannot use too much vodka because any vodka left in the dish will be delicious gummy cherry flavored vodka.
4-5 days later you will have delicious and boozy gummy cherries.
WORD OF WARNING: These gummy cherries absorb a great deal of alcohol so tread lightly and imbibe slowly.

My BFF Forest and I enjoying Bacon Martinis at the Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas
Two words: Bacon Martini
Really, did I drink one too many Grey Goose martinis, die of alcohol poisoning, and go to bacon heaven? Bacon and vodka together? Yes, it is true…there is a God…because there is a bacon martini. Obviously someone up there heard my prayers and sent this magical drink down from the heavens. I am betting angels brought it down themselves.
The bacon vodka is a clear bottle filled with vodka, strips of bacon, and globules of bacon fat. Honestly, it is not a pretty sight. As a matter of fact, even for the bacon freak, it is quite frightening. The martini itself is icy bits of bacon and bacon fat globules floating in a glass of the bacon infused vodka. Knowing in advance that they do not provide a bacon garnish, I brought my own. Yes, I am a bacon dork…what?
The bacon martini is indeed delicious and leaves a film of bacon fat on the lips…kind of like bacon chapstick. Yummmmm, bacon chapstick!
Bacon Bloody Marys (made with homemade bacon vodka)
Today I decided to both eat and drink my bacon in the form of a bacon bloody mary. These delicious concoctions contain my famous homemade bacon vodka (recipe follows,) hot wing sauce, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, bloody mary mix, and a garnish of beef stick, pickle, cheese, and black pepper bacon. EPIC!!!
750 ml bottle of vodka
4-5 strips of bacon
Cook 4-5 strips of bacon. Do not make the bacon crisp, it has to remain floppy and pliable. Pour out approximately 1/4 cup of vodka from the bottle (you need to make room for the bacon)…this can be your chef’s treat. Place the bacon in the bottle of vodka. Put cap on bottle and place in refrigerator for 3 weeks. After 3 weeks you will have what looks like something out of a pathology lab, but is in reality delicious bacon flavored vodka. At this point you can place a coffee filter in a strainer and filter out the fat globules and bits of bacon and put the bacon vodka in a clean bottle. Personally, I like to leave the fat globules and bacon in the vodka.
