Trader Joe's uncured beef bacon (or bacon of your choice)
Absolut Peppar vodka (or other vodka of your choice)
ground black pepper
pearl onions (optional)
garlic stuffed olives (optional)
marinated asparagus spears (optional)
Cook the bacon by broiling. The final consistency should be reminiscent of tender beef jerky. Put aside.
Add 1 shot of Absolut Peppar to 3 - 4 oz. tomato juice. Stir in horseradish, pepper and Worcestershire to taste; going heavy is a good thing. Mix well and pour over ice.
Garnish with one celery stick and not less than two of the four optional garnishes - the olives and cornichons are recommended, and can be
served on a bamboo skewer next to the celery. Place one slice of bacon into the drink, hanging over the edge. Enjoy!
