A WTF NYE PSM - numz!

Just in time for New Years Eve: the bacon martini. Garnished with candied bacon.

Sprinkle some brown sugar over bacon slices, and bake until crisp and caramelized. Go ahead, make the whole pound -- trust me, it's that good.

Serve the candied bacon on its own or as a cocktail garnish. Place some vodka and Applejack brandy in a shaker, with just a touch of amaretto and maple syrup. Shake with ice and pour into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with the candied bacon and a thin slice of apple (we do have to be somewhat healthful). VoilĂ . A candied bacon martini.

That does sound almost possible. But a lot of trouble. I will content myself with Black Russians and Godmother cocktails!

What's a Godmother cocktail?

Yikes, I think I'll just stick to gin (or vodka or tequila) and ice. I'm a simple sort of person.

Good heavens. Should you also hand out complimentary Lipitor tablets instead of after-dinner mints?

This looks wonderful, and the entire article is worth a read. I personally printed it and will keep it in my recipe box under the heading "BACON!".
i've baked bacon with brown sugar before, and it's out of this world! i don't make it much cause it's too hard to get it from the oven to the table and other eaters.
it just disappears in the kitchen somehow.
