Some people say the trick to creating a perfect Bloody Mary rests in the type of vodka you use. Well those people clearly have more money than I do. Because even though I'd like to, I can't exactly afford to use Grey Goose whenever I please. Sometimes a girl's only choice is the $10.99 Country Club vodka at Walgreens. So I say the trick to creating a perfect Bloody Mary is all in the garnish. The more the merrier.
Garnishes I've Had:
Pickled Egg (Only had this once Wisconsin.)
Slice of cold pizza (Served this way at Home Slice.)
Yes, I'm a aware I'm a fat kid. What can I say? I like to think of my Bloody Mary as an appetizer.
What I actually put in the drink:
Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix
(I've made Bloody's from scratch before using tomato juice but I realized that's just silly when there's so many amazing mixes available. And because I'm lazy.)
Shot of beer
I don't measure anything. It's all to taste. And sometimes I'm more ambitious than others with using all of these ingredients. It usually depends on the hangover. But there you have it, that's just a few things that I like to add to make the "perfect Bloody Mary."
And now to switch gears entirely, I was lucky enough to be a part of an awesome group of girls who have teamed up to offer one lucky winner $250 to Graphic Image. This store has quickly become my go-to for amazing leather accessories. I own a monogramed bag tag and a beautiful blue clutch. I was hoping to show a photo of my clutch today but my sweet nephew Knox hid the purse from me over the weekend while I was in Nebraska so it's being shipped to me... More stories on that trip tomorrow...
