Good morning, Mary
Ah, the best part of vacation is that you can have a bloody mary instead of coffee while reading the paper in the morning.
Sorry for y'all who have to work today.
Anyway, back to Mary...
These are must-haves for the perfect bloody mary -- tomato juice, worcestershire sauce, celery (I was out), celery salt, pepper, Spanish olives, tabasco sauce, limes (OK, this is a given for any household, people). Look for that tangy, spicy flavor.
In a pinch, a mixer will do if you haven't been to the store...
It's good to start with a great vodka.
This is my choice. (No money changed hands, it's just true).
Actually, vodka is a great all-day drink. One can start with a bloody mary, move to a screwdriver (OJ for you rookies out there), switch to cranberry juice (a Cape Cod), then end the evening with a vodka tonic.
Believe me, don't mix your grains or you'll make yourself sick switching poisons...
I speak from experience, I used to be a bartender.
Here's to all of you hard at work.
