Gobble, Gobble, Slurrrr: Yes, Vodka-Infused Turkey Exists

Some prefer their turkey day drunkenness to transpire on the couch with a dozen relatives and a football game. Others prefer their alcohol shot directly in the bird. Georgi Vodka and several New York City restaurants have infused a turkey with five different types of vodka and prepared a 100-proof vodka gravy to serve on the side. The flavors of peach, cherry, orange, lemon and apple vodka render this recipe slightly less disgusting, but not by much. “Not as alcoholic as I expected it to be,” reported a blogger for Gothamist who nibbled a slice in the name of journalism. “It tastes more like you ate some turkey after taking a shot of vodka.” Um, eww. But if you simply must try this delicacy, several P.D. O’Hurley’s pubs (yes, that’s the actual name) in NYC are selling vodka turkey for $29.99 per meal or $69 for the whole shebang. I’ve got news for you, kiddies: Four Loko is so out and tryptophan with vodka is so in! It’s what our forefathers would have wanted. [Gothamist]
