Friday Feast: Homemade Bloody Mary
In our almost six years of marriage (and two and a half years of dating), JD has coaxed me to try spicier and more tasteful foods, as well as sushi. In return, I introduced JD to crawfish, crabs and other Louisiana specialties. But, it is fun to experience a new taste together. At a Tennessee Titans tailgate a few years ago, JD and I tried a very spicy homemade bloody mary, and I think that was a big turning point for his tastebuds. Since, he has really grown to love the taste of tomato juice, which is especially surprising from a guy who doesn’t really love tomatoes.
In a few weeks, our close friends are getting married, and JD and I will be hosting a few friends at our home. I am making a big breakfast the morning after the bachelor party (I’m sure I’ll show you all those food details), and I suggested finding a good bloody mary recipe. JD was all for it. We decided to try out the recipe this week in preparation, and we discovered an awesome concoction.
So, I kind of poached this recipe from a blog and don’t feel completely comfortable copying and pasting it, so here’s the link from Former Chef. And, here’s our cruddy picture of our creation. Otherwise, I strongly encourage you to visit this site to see the combination. Ingredients include dijion mustard, Tabasco, horseradish, worchestershire sauce, and lemon and lime juices. YUM.
