Smoky Bacon Popcorn with Burnt Sugar and Sea Salt.

Smoky Bacon Popcorn with Burnt Sugar and Sea Salt.

I can’t even.

This popcorn is… addicting.

And you know? I’ve always claimed I was never a huge popcorn person, but lately it’s been all I’ve wanted. I think it started with those popcorn crunch brownies. Oomph.

This is my second recipe to pair with Pavan – and this time around we it’s going with the signature Mediterranean cocktail. I mentioned last week that Pavan is made with grapes – it’s actually like a white wine liqueur that makes you want to set up home on the french riviera (they actually have a contest going on right now to win a trip there!… ugh, I’m so in); so this cocktail is made with a little vodka and lemon juice. It’s so simple but just perfect! I always love (and need) some extra flavor in my vodka and this is just to die for.  As a side note: last night my uncle deglazed a pan of chorizo + jalapeño littleneck clams with Pavan. Uh huh. No words.
