Drink #8: The Meat Feast

I am not going to lie to you. This is a Bloody Mary in all but name. However, I’ve been experimenting with the form, and I think I’ve created something of interest. 

As luck would have it, this drink ties in with this month’s carnivore story. Make sure that bacon is so crispy the bits drop into the drink with just a tap.

I distill the olive vodka in large batches. Our basements smells of a deli counter.


A sleek highball glass.  


100ml olive infused Vodka

500ml tomato juice

A few grinds of pepper

Tabasco to tase 

A few slugs of Worcester Sauce

A handful of Ice

Four slices of chorizo

Juice of half a lemon

2 slice of Bacon (both cut into four)

Cocktail sticks (four 

Two sticks of celery 


Infuse the vodka with olives for at least a week. 

Cook the chorizo and bacon beforehand. You want them as crispy as possible without getting burnt. Put two slices of bacon, and one slice of celery on the end of each cocktail stick, and impale into the top of the celery. Set aside.

When ready pour the rest of the ingredients apart from the Tabasco over ice in the glass, and stir until frothy. Flavour with Tabasco to taste. Add the celery, bacon and chorizo sticks as a garnish..
