The Fridge5 Cinco de Mayo Drinks with a Kick
Fire up your weekend fiesta with a bacon and jalapeno-infused Bloody Mary, habanero margarita or spicy Michelada.
- Fry ½ pound bacon and drain on paper towels.
- Chop and add to 1 liter Tito's Handmade Vodka.
- Let sit 3 to 7 days until desired flavor is reached.
- Slice 1 jalapeno into discs and add to bacon-flavored vodka.
- Let sit 10 to 60 minutes, until desired heat is reached, then strain off the liquid.
- Enjoy straight over ice or add to a Bloody Mary mix (shown) or martini.
Tip: To infuse your cocktail with a true bacon flavor opposed to a smoky, nitrate-y taste, use non-smoked bacon, like center cut uncured bacon.
