Re: Chocolate Bacon

It is delicious.

But now I am thinking WHAT IF YOU HAD CANNABIS VODKA?! But that is not the grass that grass vodka is, it's real grassy green grass

Re: Chocolate Bacon

I know some people who grow it, so I have access to a handful to infuse vodka with -as I do with many other herbs, berries and whatnot -There's a few images in my T-BBS album.

Re: Chocolate Bacon

I bet they are all wonderful and a lot more wonderful than the infused vodka's I've had!

So does the cannabis impart any extra kick?

And what are your favorite infusions?

Re: Chocolate Bacon

I really think I've derailed this thread enough by now.

But to answer your questions...

No, not how I make it, but I suppose one could make it strong enough...

Walnut!

Walnut-infusion ages as well as any high-end brandy or whisk(e)y (but does it in a bottle) and has a lot of similar aromas... You'll have to let them age for ten years to get really good results though! But a walnut-bitter (as it's called around here) can be made around now and have a nice enough flavour to drink by christmas

The peppery taste of Hypericum has its appeal, rose-petal infusions will give a nice inner warmth and amber in vodka is a 'crowd pleaser'

Re: Chocolate Bacon

I'm a sucker for rose flavored anything. There's a rose and opium infused vodka you can buy at a vodka infusing emporium (lol) that I'm planning to try next time I'm there.

ROSE.

Turkish delight.

Rose water anything.

Those semolina greek cakes with rosewater..

And as to the walnuts, well I've had a kind of pickled walnuts made by greeks, fresh green walnuts in a black liquid, they were awesome. Normally I hate walnuts, seriously hate them, but I've realized I am probably hating on very low quality shit walnuts that get used in stuff here. At least, the greek walnuts made me feel I could get behind walnuts, if properly presented.

Re: Chocolate Bacon

Walnuts are fantastic if you pick them from the tree while the inner lining (whatever it's called) is still white (but bitter; you have to peel it off).

In a jar, cover as many rose petals as fit in it with a good vodka. shake it and open it a couple of times every day for 3-5 days. Filter. Dilute, with more of the same vodka, to taste. Drink.
(Do use roses that are not chemically treated in any way)
