I Love a BLT sandwich. So of course the idea of one as a cocktail has always fascinated me. I have tried a few interpretations here and there but they always seem to lack the simplicity of a traditional BLT sandwich. So I set out to make my own with this month’s Bacon infusion.
1 ½ oz. bacon infused vodka
1 ½ oz. tomato water
– combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice
– shake vigorously
– double strain into chilled cocktail glass
garnish: lettuce leaf
A BLT is meant to be light, crisp, and accent the flavor of the bacon used in the sandwich. This does just that in what is essentially a half strength martini. Quick, easy, delicious.
