It's bacon and booze!

What is there not to love? Seriously, if you don't like either of those items, we should probably stop talking. Unless you're a recovering alcoholic Jew or Muslim, and then I might cut you some slack. But all you Protestants and Catholics, y'all at least need to be down with the bacon. You've no excuse.

With that in mind, here is a recipe that will warm the heart (and possibly other places) of the bacon lovers amongst you- the BLT cocktail. I know, sounds...a bit...over the top, perhaps, and yeah, it possibly is. But it is also love, in a flute. Mad props to Jason for pulling this one out of his...brain.

Fresh bacon crumbly goodness (Please, for the love of god, do not even contemplate using Bacon Bits here. Ew.)
Fresh tomatoes, chopped
Cava or the sparkling wine of your choice
1 tsp of sugar
1/2 tps sherry vinegar
Hot sauce to taste ( I prefer Tabasco, but that's just me...)

Combine the tomatoes, sugar, and sherry vinegar. Scoop you a little of that yummy stuff into a champagne flute. Add some bacon right on the top.

Then fill yo glass with sparklies. A splash or two of hot sauce, then your lettuce right on the top, and you are one toast away from heaven.

Yeah, it sounds...questionable, maybe. But it looks pretty, no?

Now close your eyes, take a deep breath, and throw it back . Aw, yeah. That's some good shit right there.

We enjoyed it, obviously.
