      Bloody Mary


      hey, what do you put in your bloodys?

      6oz V8 Juice
      6 Ice Cubes
      3oz of Gin
      Lime Juice
      Slice of Lime
      Celery Stick
      i'm intrigued by the fact that you use Gin, but that sounds kinda bland...here's a the recipe i've been using:

      Mr & Mrs T's Bloody Mary Mix (bold and spicy sounds good, but i always get the original, so i can add my own spices...btw, this is just the name for the base, not the entire recipe...its in most liquor stores)
      Vodka
      ice
      worstechire sauce
      lemon juice
      tobasco sauce
      celery salt

      and then whatever you want for garnish...pickles are always good, but if you can find pickled okra, those are GREAT in a bloody mary.
      I think Gin is better than Vodka but yours sounds amazing, I've just taken it up so its not too exotic as of now. Thanks for the recipe.

        They actually taste pretty good, the V8 is usually too salty but the gin and ice and lime juice help to dull it just right.

          dude, i actually hate tomato juice more than anything. I NEVER thought I'd be a Bloody Mary drinker. but, a good Bloody Mary will not taste too much like tomato juice. can't describe what it tastes like, but it rocks. there are only 2 bars in green bay that i ever order 'em in (nothing worse than a bad bloody). And i'll drink the ones i make myself with the recipe listed above.

            no prob, lemme know if you try it.
            I've actually never had a bloody with gin, but i'll have to try it now because Gin & Tonics are my favorite mixed drink and I've been looking for something else to use Gin in. I'd probably have to alter the recipe because, while vodka is good with a salty drink, gin is a lot more citrusy (did i just invent a word?) and might not be that good with my recipe.

              Do you use Gin or Vodka in Martinis? and yes, you pretty much invented a word.

                Actually citrusy is a real word...Do you like gin and juice?

                  well, i don't make martinis for a couple reasons:
                  -you have to get top shelf liquor for them to be tolerable, which gets expensive.
                  -i don't own a martini shaker.
                  -martini glasses don't fit in my car's cup holder (just kidding)
                  -i'm not that fancy.

                  but, when i'm at a bar that serves martinis (which rarely happens) i get 'em with gin. like i said before, i like the taste of a good gin, but gin & tonics and martinis are the only thing i've used gin in.

                    I never had a Martini myslef I was just going to suggest you use Gin if you had been using Vodka in them. As I said my knowledge of mixing drinks is limited and I really dont know that many drinks to mix Gin in.

                      well i hate bloody maries because without tabasco or worchester they're way to bland, although sometimes some steak/soy sauces are amazing in them, but with those i hate the taste.

                      As for Martinis i make mine the way Churchill made his. Poor some gin in a glass and show it the vermouth from the otherside of the room. Even though the original martinis are with vodka i use gin.

                          Peanut Butter (crunchy)
                          Jelly
                          Croissants (from Costco)
                          Bread
                          Swiss Cheese
                          Turkey
                          Mayo
                          Lettuce

                          What's the best sandwich I can make using these ingredients? (and no, not using ALL of them)
                          I want to take a shot at this.
                          NO PBJ

                          Umm toasted bread w/ turkey, lettuce , mayo and cheese put on afterwards (toasting)
                          Same thing but w/ toasting the cheese w/ the bread

                          just a thought

                              nope original martinis were you take a glass, dunk it into some vermouth for the smell, then poor the vermouth out and pour in vodka.

                              as for the meal i gues you should change the desert then. depending on her diet you might wanna reconsider the pasta as well.
