The Vodka Burger

Adding alcohol to food is pretty much like a Reese's, two great tastes that taste great together. Trying to get the right alcohol with the right food is the real pain in the ass. It seems right now that every recipe in it has tequila or bourbon because those two seem to work so well with a lot of meats.

The Revolution bars in the UK have paired good old hamburger meat with vodka to create the Vodka Burger. If Vodka is odorless and tasteless, does that mean that the burger is too? No sir, the chain of 55 bars actually uses their home-grown Chili Pepper Vodka in the burger and garnishes it with their vodka chili salsa.

It remains to be seen if the burger actually has some sort of vodka taste to it as I'm sure the pepper and chili taste overwhelms most of the other flavors, but until they come out with a Vodka Burrito, I'll give it a whirl.
