Twil indicated an interest in Bloody Marys with dinner this weekend, so I got a bottle of Vodka Of The Gods (srsly. it's adequate. I avoided the Burnett's or whatever it is called, thanks Gravdigr) and a bottle of Trader Joe's Bloody Mary Mix. Also, salt pepper lime and celery. I followed the recipe, but they were not very good. I think that I should not have let the ice stay in the drink, but strain the drink instead (like the recipe says. oops). They were watery, not very tasty.

So. No more Bloody Marys. I'll find something to do with the remaining 16 oz of mix.

Try Worcestershire sauce or Old Bay seasoning in the Bloody Mary.

Promise you'll come to the panto next year with us. Scoot may well fit in with broad Glasgae accents.

And anyway we want to see you.

Sundae, I apologise in advance for this ...

Or you could try a Bloody Mary the Russian way. Prepare a modest array of savoury snacks:these might be sliced dill pickles, rollmop herrings, good black bread and butter, for example. All ingredients to be chilled. Get two small shot glasses, SMALL ones. Get some very high quality tomato juice, the stuff that's so thick you can almost stand the spoon up in it and put a scant mouthful of this in each glass. Float 50ml of vodka on the top. Can you see where I might be going with this?
Breathe out, down the drink in one, take the snack item of your choice and lightly sniff it before eating it. Repeat the process after a short interval - though done right you will get a glow first time.
Note - no ice.

Limes, I love the idea.
But I simply don't have a normal relationship with alcohol.
Your Bloody Mary would spark a craving which could only be doused by more alcohol, and the need is an accelerant.

I do love Big Tom though. Yummy with or without alcofrolics. Although when Terri and I found it in a local pub we always ended up having vodka doubles. Until Dave (her partner) came home. And when he heard we were in a pub he wanted to join us. And I kept up with him as he was catching up...

Good times. But only in parts. Life in general was pants,

in fact that right there is your problem. Pour it down the drain (or use it in a soup or something).

yeah. That's no help at all. I recognize it's in fun, but you seriously CAN become cross addicted (I am) or substitute one harmful thing for another. Given my druthers I'd be a pillhead (no calories) but it's hard to score when you're a middle aged white woman with really good teeth. Plus, I'm used to USP certified drugs. Sex addiction is just as painful (I dated one) and exercise addiction or work addiction, while applauded by our sick society is just as destructive.


I say take up scratch-off lotto tickets. That should be safe.
