Guess what...

...I'm making tomorrow for Gia's sister's birthday on Saturday?


That's right. Those are all the ingredients needed to make an Old-Fashioned with bacon-infused bourbon ala PDT's recipe.

I'm actually gonna infuse two whiskeys with bacon. Jim Beam Black and Jim Beam Rye. I want to see how the bacon infusion affects the bourbon and the rye. I also bought two different kinds of pure maple syrup. And I'm using a thick-cut bacon that has been hickory-smoked twice as I want to get a real smoky flavor out of the infusion process.

I can't wait!

And hey...look! A new picture of the kittens!



That's Gogo on top. She's fluffy. And Wolowitz right beneath her. We had a little scare with him last week. He walked into the living room looking like his front right leg was broken. We took him to the Vet and had x-rays taken, but nothing was broken. Some anti-biotics and an anti-inflammatory later he was just fine. And we had him fixed while he was there. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Gogo heads in for her procedure in about 3 weeks. Rawr!

Programming Notice - I'm taking a week off from Music Video Fridays. Every artist I wanna showcase won't let me embed their videos here. It's becoming very common now on Youtube. Fuckers. Catch me again next week. Maybe.

Nothing says, "I love your sister more than life itself" like bourbon infused bacon.

kiki said...

dude, those ingredients are like a heart attack waiting to happen

jiggs said...

That bacon makes me jizzy all over. Also, I also got a kitten. It is named "sushi". She's a white little kitty that we adopted from the ASPCA.

Avitable said...

That should be interesting!

Michelle said...

Wow! Bacon infused stuff = GREATNESS!!!

You must let us know how it all turns out K???

Perhaps samples??? A tasting???

Make it happen!!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!

The kitties are cute!!

GeologyJoe said...

Bourbon infused bacon? i have never heard of such a thing. post the recipe please. or is it as simple as putting bacon in bourbon, like a marinade?

marty mankins said...

Bacon and booze... it's going to be a nice party.

Nice photo op with the new kitties.

And I feel your pain on the YouTube bullshit. I know it's not all YouTube to blame, but at the same time, I don't see any other video services getting trampled by the RIAA fucks.

Heff said...

I request a follow-up post regarding how the bacon infused goodness turns out. I've always wanted to do that, but never have.

B.E. Earl said...

Faiqa - I think you just stumbled onto something. Bacon-infused bourbon is great, but bourbon-infused bacon sounds REALLY GREAT!!! ;)

Kiki - Bring it!

Jiggs - Aww. You DO have a heart. Don't worry. I won't tell anyone.

Avitable - it is one hour into the infusion process as we speak. Er, type.

Michelle - I will follow up on Monday with a detailed review.

Joe - No, you infuse the bourbon for 4-5 hours with bacon grease. Then you freeze it so you can spoon off the fat. The process is called fat washing. The recipe on how to do it is in the link for PDT's recipe up top there.

Marty - I call bullshit! It sucks. Oh well.

B.E. Earl said...

Heff - look for it on Monday. :)

white rabbit said...

Whisky and bacon??? Shee-triple-it!!! :-O

Must be an American thing...

Ookami Snow said...

I just thought of this. What about apple muffins with maple frosting and bacon crumbled on top.

THAT would be a good breakfast.

Ookami Snow said...

No, not maple frosting, that doesn't sound good anymore... the apple muffins topped with maple syrup that is hot enough to candy with bacon in the syrup.

yes.

B.E. Earl said...

WR - it's so American that we put an "E" in our Whiskey. ;)

Ookami - I'm sorry, I don't understand. Where is the booze in that concoction?

Jimmy Bastard said...

I'm more of your average bacon-confused kinda fella.

It would be advantage to us both if you sent over a wee drap of a taster, reet?

Candy's daily Dandy said...

I'm with Heff. Please reveal the results of said feed-bag on Monday. That sounds way so tasty. And awfully nice Earl....

B.E. Earl said...

Jimmy - the first batch is a test run. If it comes out the way I hope it does, then I may have to share.

Candy - It's a done deal. Look for it.

Ookami Snow said...

No, no booze... although a drizzle on top would work.

I just was thinking of other maple bacon things to make.

Water Logged Canine said...

"I want to go to there."

Arf!

Water Logged Canine said...

By the way, if your plan includes the huge ice cubes, I'll be super impressed! ;)

Dr Zibbs said...

I remember reading your other post about this. It sounds great.

Mrs. Wolowitz said...

Holy Moley... I wish it were Jill's birthday everyday!!

Kevin Spencer said...

Oooooh, booze and bacon. I love it. Would love to sample the fruits of your labor. Wait, that didn't sound right.

B.E. Earl said...

WLC - I'm going on an Odyssey tomorrow morning to see if I can find those ice cube trays. But be prepared to be disappointed.

Zibbs - I just took a whiff and it certainly smells good. We shall see.

Becky - But what about PA's crazy blue laws about sending booze through the mail? ;)

Mrs Wolowitz - wait? MRS. WOLOWITZ??? :)

Kevin - Not in a gay way, noooo.

bobgirrl said...

Wonderful black kitties, Sir, such treasures, and that bacon - I can smell it frying from here - Yummm, and I'm a vegetarian, so I'll just have the rye, please!
