Meaty Vodka?

Here's one for the What Were They Thinking File:

Salmon And Bacon Flavored Vodkas On The Rise

I love bacon and I love smoked salmon, but I don't think I would find either of these flavors tasty in a mixed drink.

Would you?

That's just too weird a combination. Although, there have been some weird food combinations that I have ended up liking.

I don't think I'd even like to taste Bacon flavored vodka or smoked salmon flavored vodka either. It's too weird for me too.

Make mine Kettle One, unflavored.

that's revolting

Brooke said...

Um, I guess you drink it straight up?

Anyway, I'll pass.

cube said...

tha malcontent: If I'm going to drink vodka, I prefer the cheap stuff. What's the difference?

cube said...

Birdwoman: I hear ya. I couldn't believe they tried 47 times to make this stuff and it was the
48th time that worked. I wouldn't have tried once.

Brooke: I don't know. What would you mix salmon with? Only lemon comes to mind. Who drinks vodka straight besides Russians?

Brooke said...

I don't know. When we have vodka, I make Martinis. Or Bradfords.

Bourbon is good straight up, but I do know how to make a Manhattan.

I can't think of a reason why someone would want to drink something that tastes like a fish... If I want fish, I'll fire up the grill!

As for the bacon stuff, I can't think of anything to mix it with, and as much as I like bacon I still can't see bacon vodka. I know they used to make mixed drinks with raw egg back in the 20's, but that wasn't because they liked egg flavor shots.

I don't get it. Ick.
