I love Bloody Marys. That’s all.
There are few things in life that I enjoy as much as sipping on a well made Bloody Mary. They are refreshing and reviving. Perhaps that is why they are often linked to curing hangovers!
For me, it is much more than a beverage you drink to shake off the night before. The Bloody Mary is a culinary art form, often referred to as ‘The world’s most complex cocktail.’ It’s all about seasoning, balance, consistency and finishing touches like quality garnish- no matter how simple.
In this video, my partner in crime, Brett, shows us how easy it is to make your own Bloody Mary at home. There are some really good mixes out there (and also some really bad ones!) but I still like to make my own from scratch when I can.
The sad truth is that very few establishments know how to make a good Bloody Mary. It’s unfortunate because more often than not, it’s the great swing in flavor and consistency from one Bloody to the next that turns people off- for good.
Personally, when I get a bad Bloody Mary- I don’t get turned off, I just get really sad. I’m sad because it is completely avoidable and with a little care, Bloody drinkers can rejoice!
And let’s get real, in today’s day and age of $12 -$15 cocktails–am I wrong to expect to enjoy my drink? I think not.
Enough with serving us cheap mixes, slopping a lemon on the side and sending us the bill. It’s time for Bloody Mary lovers to unite and demand a good drink! That’s why I created an app to find great Bloody Marys!
