Perfect Bloody Mary recipe

Ice (a bunch)

Re: Perfect Bloody Mary recipe

decent mid range vodka (smirnoff is a-ok)
Juice of one fresh squeezed lime
celery seed
dash of tabasco
pinch of salt
dash of white pepper
Pinch of horseradish
Top with either fresh tomato juice (puree the tomatoes in a blender, then strain, then sieve through cheesecloth...its almost clear but tastes very tomato-ey) or v8

Add one pickled spicy green bean as a swizzle stick. You'll find these in the pickle related section of many supermarkets. Trust me.

You have to let it stand for a little while for the celery seed to kick in, but it really makes the drink, then pour over ice.

Doing margaritas lately though. Fill a glass with ice. Fill one quarter of the glass with fresh squeezed lime juice, bring it up to halfway with tequila, almost fill with fresh valencia orange juice, then top with a shot of grand marnier.

Good deal on tequila: "El Jimidor Reposado" at Sams Club, bottled by Herradura, who IMO makes one of the better tequilas...$29 for a 1.75L bottle.

Re: Perfect Bloody Mary recipe

Gentlemen, and Lady, those are recipes for a Caeser, NOT a Bloody Mary, always including Worcestershire Sauce.

Tomato Juice is used for a Bloody Mary.

Re: Perfect Bloody Mary recipe

Take a small can of tomato juice out.

Pour yourself a cup of black coffee - add a shot of Jack Daniels.

Drink.

Put the tomatoe juice back where you got it.

Re: Perfect Bloody Mary recipe

I ususally only drink bloody Marys at the airline lounges. I'm going out and get some Stoli.

Don't Bloody Marys make it legal to drink before lunch.

Two eggs, over easy, toast, and a strong Bloody Mary, thanks darlin.

I once had a cube mate from the South and his wife called him at about 8 AM every morning and he would pick up the receiver hand it to me and I would say; "Hello Darlin" in a George Jones voice. She said it gave her an orgasm. Guess some women are easy to please.

Re: Perfect Bloody Mary recipe

I'd like a bloody mary, but hold the tomato juice, celery seeds, lime juice, worchester sauce, black pepper and ice.

Or just give me a shot of vodka (we call that Russian potato water around here).

Sorry, OAP, that's Conway Twitty... *:P

My favorite is Jim Reeves: Put your sweet lips a little closer to the bone...

Flashback to my stint as a DJ at a country music station... *

A friend, who's a big Stoli drinker, married a young lass of Polish persuasion. After a visit to the now DW's home country, he considers Stoli "swill"...

As for me, a Bloody Mary is the only way I can stomach vodka. Anyone who drinks gin or vodka martinis is a serious alcoholic, IMV... *

Re: Perfect Bloody Mary recipe

Decent vodka (Smirnoff?).
1 T Dill Pickle Juice (BAH, my secret is out!).
Couple shakes of lemon juice (out of the bottle if you can't get fresh ones, cheap).
Couple drops of Tabasco.
Few drops of Worchester.
Ice, of course.
Tomato juice.

Incredibly technical, no?* *It's all a matter of taste.

Adjust dill pickle juice to taste.* That's the big secret.* It already has all the salt you'll need, and the hint of a pickle spear.

Add all the pepper, horseradish, etc. you want after you taste it once.

HFWR,

This is the one I do.

http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.n...256FB4002746E0

It makes the ladies get, er, uhm, let's just say in the mood. A girlfriend from Los Angeles used to get kinda frisky when I'd say "Hello Darlin, nice to see you".

Re: Perfect Bloody Mary recipe

Martha,
Waiting for delivery people is my least favorite thing to do (or close). Why do they tell you somewhere between 1-3 and then show up at 3:30.

By the way, so far, a few dishes from Goodwill, some cleaning goods, couple of towels and some bedding. Still pretty frugal.

In about 45 minutes, I'm going down and ask the door man to have the delivery people return the stuff and go get myself a refund. Show them mofos.

Re: Perfect Bloody Mary recipe

Not sure if I'd buy a ringtone from a guy who attributes "Hello Darlin'" to George Jones... :P

Reverend Smith was canvassing the neighborhood for the yearly orphanage fundraiser. The good reverend bore a striking resemblence to Conway Twitty, so he was often mistaken for the country music star. Invariably, he would knock at the door, and the person answering would say "Wow, it's Conway Twitty", to which the reverend would reply "No, I'm Rev. Smith. collecting for the orphange."

Near the end of one long day, after walking so many blocks he'd lost count, he knocked on the door to a small home near the end of the day's route. A woman, wearing nothing but a towel wrapped around her, answered the door.

"My God", she exclaimed, dropping the towel in her excitement, "It's Conway Twitty"!!

To which Rev. Smith replied "Hello, Darlin'..."
