Bacon Melon-Tini

Combining the fresh and slightly sweet flavor of melon with bacon creates a drink that is perfect for summer fun.


Fresh melon

1 bottle Ketel One vodka infused with bacon

1 pound Bacon + more for garnish


Start by infusing a 750 ml bottle of Ketel One vodka with 1 pound of bacon.

Prepare the vodka until it is crisp. Place it in an airtight container such as a mason jar, along with the vodka.

Run this through the dishwasher (really! - it helps the infusion process.)

Let the jar sit at least overnight to get a full flavor. Filter through a coffee filter to avoid a greasy film at the top of your drink.

Cut a fresh melon into small pieces.

For every 5 ounces of vodka, use about 1/2 cup melon, and in a mixer, muddle the melon in the vodka. Add ice and shake.

Pour into a glass, and top with a garnish of fresh melon wrapped in a slice of bacon.
