It's Bloody Hot

It is hotter than blazes out there but I'm actually talking about our Bloody Mary Mix ...

Yup you've seen this picture before (another one of those posts that never made it to the other side). Thought you all might like to have our {not so secret} recipe to help cool you off a bit.

Clamato (could use spicy V8)
Nutmeg (just a dash)
Worcestershire (a splash or two)
Prepared horseradish (tablespoon or more)

Everything is to taste ... we make the batch without the vodka so we can drink it in the mornings with out well, you know, getting tipsy.For the 'it's 5 o'clock somewhere' bunch (or if you aren't sharing with the under 21 crowd as we often are) - add vodka to taste.

Serve with celery, lemon, and lime. Henry likes his with a toothpick full of olives. I have no idea where he got that idea from (Rocky).  We also have been known to dip the class rim in the Old Bay like you would salt on a margarita.

Gotta run go wet my whistle ... it's bloody hot!

Sounds a bit too hot for me lol , the only thing I like which is even a little bit spicy is Indian food.

I have never had a bloody mary. Now I want to try one.

So, if I totally get snockered, will you visit me in rehab?

Bloody Marys are my favorite summer drink. I am seriously drooling here. Man -- I need to see what's in my cupboard.

That sounds really yummy! I've never made a bloody mary before, but I really like them, so I'll have to try this. I guess you guys have all the heat because it's flipping COLD over here. CrAZy!

Sadly, I really don't like these. However, John Grissham looks handsome even when he is pulling a face. I think those pukkers on your pot cloths add character and the personal touch! thanks for admiring the wedding cake, I was really pleased with the result.

Bloody Marys are my absolute favorite drink - if I'm ever out socializing (hahaha) that's what I always order to drink. YUM! I should totally make up some mix to have around the house this summer. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
