As we wrote about the Bloody Mary bar earlier today, we searched for our post on Bakon Vodka. We couldn’t find it.
One of the quirks of WordPress is that posts disappear. Months later they can reappear (maybe, maybe not). Since we discovered this content-owner-nightmare, we’ve taken screen shots of every post we publish—not only to be able to recover the content, but also to prove to others that we’re not delusional.
So here’s our re-created 411 on Bakon Vodka:

When we use Bakon Vodka in a Bloody Mary, its delicious subtlety doesn’t have a chance amid the larger percentage of tomato juice, plus the horseradish, hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce.

We give Bakon Vodka as gifts. It‘s novel, delicious and everyone is more than happy to receive a bottle.
Bakon Vodka retails for about $30.00. Learn more at BakonVodka.com.
