A SUPER homemade Bloody Mary

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
Do you have any Super Bowl traditions? Jeff and I are laying low this year. I’m celebrating the game by not knowing who is actually playing, just like every year.

I ventured to Hyvee earlier, but even that was a little tricky due to all the snow we’ve gotten, and the fact that our neighborhood is very much not plowed. God bless four wheel drive.

Also, let’s just remember for a second where we were a year ago today:

Watching the Super Bowl on a beach in Jamaica.

So that’s depressing.

I think I’ll drink away the pain.


Just kidding. But I really did want a Bloody Mary today because they really are theeee best drinks ever. I have a deep, intense love for Bloody Mary’s.

Since today was basically a snow day AND Super Bowl day, I decide that made it special enough to try my hand at some homemade bloodies. I found this recipe which gave me a great starting point, but it was a tad too tomato-y for my taste. I also possibly did it wrong because a mixologist I am not.
