Spicy Margarita – Black Barrel Tequila Bacon
I often wonder when is too early to start drinking? Sometimes the answer is, “why did you stop?” The other more sensible answer for mature adults is clearly “before brunch” and as far as I can figure brunch is just an excuse to eat and drink anything you want in the morning. Furthermore, it seems that if you combine alcohol with a morning beverage like orange juice or tomato juice, suddenly it’s ok to be drinking before any teenager on earth has woken up. Nice!
So this is a tribute to brunch and the inventiveness of the Mimosa and the Bloody Mary (the acceptable breakfast cocktails). We believe that this Spicy Margarita Bacon will liven any morning meal because we are pairing a great drink, adding a bit of spice, all into bacon (the ultimate breakfast food). Tada!
Think of this bacon like the ultimate mixer. Pretty much everything is fair game. For some, you can say, “its not the alcohol, I just like the flavor. ” While others will say, “while I’m at it I really should pair it with a great margarita.” Delicious! And then there are those that will serve this bacon in a shot glass of their favorite tequila (not mezcal), because…why not, you are on vacation.
Regardless of your justification, we salute you. ¡Salud!
