The Bloodytini

Well, after several days of beautiful weather, a cold front moved in yesterday afternoon, bringing thunder, lightening and hail.  I was going to post the video of the storm I took, but I can’t figure out how to get it off of my phone.

I has me some mad smart phone skillz.  Not.

Then I thought I’d post the recipe for the marvelous beef vegetable soup I made a couple of weeks ago – since it’s all COLD again, and there’s a dusting of SNOW on the ground – but it occurred to me that some of you might actually have warm weather and why should I spoil your spring with a winter soup dish?


So, I decided to do something I hadn’t for awhile – let Beloved the Martini Mixologist save the day.  I made the usual “Make me something fun” request last weekend, and he handed me this.  VERY, VERY good.

The Bloodytini

serves me, and nobody else but me

2 1/2 shots vodka
1 tablespoon spicy vegetable juice, such as V8
2 or 3 drops Tabasco sauce
1 dash of your favorite barbecue rub
1 inner rib of celery

Place all ingredients except the celery in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well; strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the celery.

  1. I think Beloved needs to open a Mom bar. You know, where we could go on a stressful day and drink fun, pretty things and forget for a few minutes about the pile of laundry, the snotty noses and the incessant “I want”. It would be perfect next door to one of those drop off for an hour day care places 😉 Limit one drink per customer, though (don’t want to be driving the little ones with a snoutful, after all). He could charge $20 per drink and he’d still pack them in, I bet.

    1. I saw that you had a pretty busy day yesterday – I’ll get around to commenting over there this evening. I’m still darn jealous!
