I pride myself on my Bloody Marys. Your label will now garnish my drinks....just kidding! I wouldn't do that w/out permission of transfer of $. Now I know BM's are coming this weekend though.,.ummm.

Print it out and see what happens. I like showing this kind of work so it may spark ideas in others.


I'm not a drinker, but the illustration says "Tequila Sunset" to me (a play off of "Tequila Sunrise", The Eagles, & the rumored meaning of "Hotel California"--which I don't know whether is true or not, but it seems to really p___ off Don Henley, & since he's a liberal pinhead, I thought I'd do my part to keep the rumor going).

There are actually Bloody Mary mixes? Have drunks gotten so lazy they can't mix tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire, & Tabasco any more?

I tasted one once--must have been 20 years ago. Thought it needed a little splash of sweet pickle brine (home-made pickle--although the store-bought stuff will do OK). I was the hit of the party, & I'm a teetotaler. A little pickle brine (in addition to pickle) does wonders for deviled eggs & 'tater salad, too.

If you mix yours in a blender, you can use a slice or two of the pickle itself to get more mileage out of the brine. People tell me dill pickle works too, but one taste was more than enough for me.


Doc Al:

Reminds me of the Willie Nelson song:

"Well it's a bloody mary morning
Baby left me without warning
Sometime in the night"

Judging by the smile on his face, I think the Devil took her.
