The BLT Martini – Nope, not kidding about this either!

Recipe for the BLT Martini. (Not sure about this one)

Hello Betties. As you know Bacon is now a “thing”.  For some of us, it’s always been a “thing”. I grew up partially on a farm.  My grandmother made bacon every single day.

And who doesn’t love bacon? Please don’t answer that!

Well, one thing I didn’t know is there is now Bacon flavored vodka.  And no, I wouldn’t kid so dangerously with a girl and her heart.

So I found this Martini I’m dying to try.  It’s the BLT Martini.  Here’s the recipe and if you try it, let me know and rate it in the comments below.  Hey, I’m a poet too!

This recipe is from the Bakon Vodka website.

The BLT Martini:

Winning recipe from the “Palm Springs Cocktail Challenge”!

Ingredients:
• 3 parts Bakon Vodka
• 1 part Tomato Juice
• Layer with seasoned “Tomato Foam”
(Strained Tomato Juice, White Pepper, White Worcestershire, Sea Salt, Olive Oil and Lecithin) 
Garnish:
• Crushed Seasoned Croutons
• Romaine Spear & Cherry Tomato

Instructions:
Tomato Foam: Chop 2-3 large tomatoes and strain through a sieve or cheesecloth. Add the pepper, Worcestershire, salt and oil to taste. Can be made several days ahead and kept chilled. Just before service add 2-3 teaspoons of lecithin (a soy based thickening agent) and process in a blender or food processor. The foam will rise to the top and the lecithin will help it hold together.

In a shaker, combine 3 parts Bakon Vodka to one part plain tomato juice. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Spoon on a thick layer of the tomato foam as a float. Sprinkle crushed seasoned croutons on top of the foam. Pick a small romaine spear from the heart of the bunch and skewer it with two small cherry tomatoes. Rest the skewer on the rim of the glass and serve.
