Mixer & Mingle Fridays : Bloody Marys

Do you do bloody mary's? I'll be honest... I don't.

I can't.

I want to...I try. But every time I have that seasoning-rimmed, celery-garnished cocktail in my hand I can't help but think I'm drinking cold tomato soup.

I love tomatoes, I could eat a whole bushel (is that how you measure tomatoes? Bushels? Pecks? Meh who knows) of fresh from the vine tomatoes, but no tomato juice concoctions tickle my fancy.



MOVING ON --



Bloody Mary's. If you DO get down with the Mary, have you ever mixed it up a bit?



Earlier this year Effen Vodka released their cucumber vodka. I've heard it's uh-mazing in bloody mary's. Sound a little weird? Maybe?

What about a totally organic spirit, like American Harvest. It's pretty much considered a "vodka" but because of some USDA mumbojumbo it cannot be called a vodka, it's smooth though and makes the perfect health-conscious bloody mary!


What about something spicy like Absolut Peppar? Kick your Mary's up a notch!


So tell me... what's your flavor of choice for these early afternoon classic cocktails?

The very thought of a bloddy mary makes my mouth water in that vommy kind of way, blech!

whitney said...

omg i could live off bloody marys. i mean my liver wouldn't like it but i would! i use the pepper vodka and it really gives it an awesome kick!

sometimes i make bloody's a couple days in advance and let it sit in the fridge...can't even taste the vodka. danger danger!

i am SO with you on this. i want to like bloody mary's so bad, but just can't seem to get into them! on a recent trip to Wisconsin, however, I had the most enjoyable BM yet. my friend made it with a mix called Zing Zang, Absolut Vodka, & topped it w/ a fresh cheese stick. it was pretty good for a Bloody Mary!

Mateya said...

Yuck! I think Bloody Mary's are disgusting! I just tomato juice so anything like that makes me sick just thinking about it.

We have a place around here that has "the best" Bloody Mary's according to some and they put a bunch of crap in it but the thing that gets me is they put a stick of beef jerky in it...wtf?!

Erica said...

The key is having the right mix... if you don't it tastes like nasty tomato juice. I love Mr & Mrs T's spicy mix or the Zing Zang mix. Throw in some awesome vodka... mmm.

Rude Chels... what have I told you about mentioning anything edible? and just teasing me with alcohol at that!! Just for that I'm going to bombard you with all my cravings today.

I have yet to try a bloody mary, because I don't think I would like them. And I don't think it's worth it wasting a whole drink on something I don't like. I tried a martini once, bleh. Too much olive juice (and I love olives so it was quite the experience for me to not like it.) I like other types of martinis, but I'm wary of trying new drinks. I like what I like, ya know?

I feel like you and I would be good drinking partners in crime...

My Life as A Plate said...

I love love Bloody Marys, I have never tried it with the cucumber, I feel like I will either love it or hate it haha but I will def. try it!! Thanks for the suggestion

Mrs. Mama said...

why did you have to go and tempt me with all this booze. now i'm going to have to try one of these fancy schmancy drinks.... although, i too, do not do bloody marys.

Chelsea @ {twotwentyone} said...

Not a fan. My fave before noon cocktail would have to be screwdrivers or fuzzy navels.

Mary and Dyer said...

I can't do them either. I never actually tried them, but just the smell doesn't do it for me. I am def a mimosa kind of girl!! xox

I just became your newest follower! I would love for you to check out my blog & follow back if you'd like :)
