Ode to the Bloody Mary. . .

So, I have gotten a few emails in response to my Beer vs. Bloody Mary entry...
1- By ordering a Bloody Mary, I was not in anyway saying it was more refined... that is just my choice of beverage. It was merely an observation to Sunday morning drink specials

2- Sorry, beer lovers, based on my responses most people feel that Bloody Marys and Mimosas are more appropriate due to the nutritional value of the drink. Again, we all have our opinions.
Today in the Washington Post there was a great adaption on a Bloody Mary recipe I wanted to share that not only is deemed "a health drink" but also a cure all for a morning after over indulging. Again, like opinions, we all have had one (hangovers).

1 serving
Created by Wayne Curtis of the Atlantic and John Myers of the Grill Room in Portland, Maine;adapted from "Stir Your Soul: Tales of the Cocktail Recipe Book" and vodka added by Chaos!


2 1/2 ounces tomato juice

1 ounce freshly squeezed orange juice

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 ounce vodka

1 teaspoon honey

1 tablespoon finely chopped onion

3 thin crosswise-cut slices hot chili pepper, such as jalapeno

1 dash Worcestershire sauce



Fill a highball glass with ice.

Combine the three juices, vodka, honey, onion, pepper slices, Worcestershire sauce and salt to taste in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously, then pour (strained) into the glass.

*PS- I am cooking tonight so stay tuned for a Chaos made and tried recipe. I know... sounds more like an urban legend*
