Bloody Mary

Thank you for visiting! If you like this post, please don't forget to stumble!

I love tomato juice but never had tried a Bloody Mary.  The name just turned me off from the drink.  However, on one of our trips back home we visited my friend Renee while she was bar-tendering and I actually tried a little bit - and realized it was really good!

I decided that I would try to make it at home.  I found a recipe on allrecipes.com that looked similar to what I watched Renee make - however there was no horseradish in this recipe.  I'm not sure how the horseradish comes about in the recipe because when I looked traditional recipes up, none mentioned it.  I love the addition though - mostly because I love a kick!

Did Grumpy like it?  Well, Grumpy didn't drink it and he wouldn't even if he had been around when I made it!  He has his mind set on certain things that he is totally unwilling to try - and this drink would be one of them.  So I made it to try when he wasn't here!  ;)

A Bloody Mary is my favorite drink for brunch. I sometimes make them with V-8 juice, too. Need to get your veggies, right?

I would try a Virgin Bloody Mary someday (since I don't drink). ;) My husband LOVES tomato juice (v-8), so he'd probably love this, too.

Love Bloody Marys! Although we don't have them very often. We make ours with a spicy tomato juice. Gives it an extra kick!
