Bloody Mary

“Don’t cross the streams!” – Dr. Egon Spengler

We’ve all been warned before not to mess with a good thing. But when THREE good things join forces, it’s the kind of instantaneous life altering moment (protonic reversal or not) we can’t ignore.

It all started earlier this week when GamerMan and I stopped at World Market to investigate a new couch. We sat on it, chatted on it, made out on it… you know, the usual stuff to see if this piece of furniture would fit in our lives.

We ended up leaving without the sofa. Instead, we’d picked Demitri’s Bacon Bloody Mary Rim Salt.

Best purchase ever. EVER.

On the way home, after realizing neither of us had ever had a Bloody Mary before, we also picked up some Mr & Mrs T’s Bold and Spicy Bloody Mary mix AND Absolute Peppar. If we were going to do this, we’re going to do it right!

Guess what: Best additional purchases ever. EVER.

What I’m about to share with you is the most amazing drink on the face of the earth. And guess what else! It has vegetables in it so it’s totally healthy! Also making it healthy? BACON. That’s right. Bacon. YUM-FREAKIN-O.

Get this in your tummy stat. You won’t regret it.

What to do: Run lime wedge flesh-down around the rim of a large glass. Invert glass and lightly press into rim salt. Turn right-side-up and fill glass with ice.
