I've been thinking about this idea for a little while now. About how one's room or a room you see can be so evocative. And how the cocktail you choose is so hinged on the mood your in. So what's sets the mood? The time and place, of course (unless you've lost your religion then it doesn't matter). Do you see the connection?
Here's the game - what cocktail would you choose with this room?
Francis Bacon's studio.
I was thinking a Bloody Mary. You can really throw anything from your fridge door into the mix which seems pretty chaotic to me. And of course, if you want to be super-literal you can add bacon salt or infuse your vodka with bacon.Fry up three strips of bacon.
Add cooked bacon to a clean pint sized mason jar. Trim the ends of the bacon if they are too tall to fit in the jar.
Fill the jar up with vodka. Cap and place in a dark cupboard for at least three weeks. That’s right- I didn’t refrigerate it.
At the end of the three week resting period, place the bacon vodka in the freezer to solidify the fats. Strain out the fats through a coffee filter to yield a clear filtered pale yellow bacon vodka.
Decant into decorative bottles and enjoy.Recipe and photo of vodka from: Browniepoinstblog
