THERE it is, sitting behind the bar of the East Village’s Double Down Saloon – an unlabeled vodka bottle in which three bloated strips of bacon stand at attention looking like a med-school project gone awry. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing a binge too far, the final olive-covered straw, the drink that leaves us shaken, anger stirred: the Bacon Martini.

    My God, it’s the perfect Anti-Islamist drink.
    I’m making one this weekend.

    I dunno, Mr. Bingley….pigging out like that? There’s something funny about that….

  3. (You’re gonna get a fat lip if you keep up the pork puns…)

  4. Mr. Bingley says:

    add a little club soda and it’s a white swine spritzer

  5. A little ginger, cloven nutmeg and it’s Sauerbraten.

  6. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Well, as the article bemoans how this is not a martini, I suggest the name of “Pickled Pig”.

  7. Rob says:

    Most of these puns are ABSOLUTely awful.

  8. As usual Rob, your point is ever clear.

    They found an empty bottle of Finlandia in Shamu’s tank.

    The perfect drink for those olive-skinned swarthy types.

  11. Kathy K says:

    I’m with Mr. Bingley on both counts – both that it’s the perfect anti-islamist drink and that I’m making one this weekend… 😉
    But the author is right – it’s not a martini!

  12. Gunslinger says:

    It sound like the perfect side order for a fried egg margarita.

  13. Can I order one “bacon not stirred”?

  14. The_Real_JeffS says:

    Since vodka is made from potatos, the Bacon Martini and Fried Egg Margarita constitue a balanced breakfast.
    Mr. Bingley, you might try them with a “Breakfast in Bed” theme.

    The folks at will love this.
    The battle cry is — BACON!!!

    Oh thank God. Now we can die of cirrosis of the liver and from high cholesterol at the same time.
    Perfect for the American on the go with no time to waste.

  17. My God…
    How can they do that to bacon???
