I love tomato juice but never had tried a Bloody Mary. The name just turned me off from the drink. However, on one of our trips back home we visited my friend Renee while she was bar-tendering and I actually tried a little bit - and realized it was really good!
I decided that I would try to make it at home. I found a recipe on allrecipes.com that looked similar to what I watched Renee make - however there was no horseradish in this recipe. I'm not sure how the horseradish comes about in the recipe because when I looked traditional recipes up, none mentioned it. I love the addition though - mostly because I love a kick!
Did Grumpy like it? Well, Grumpy didn't drink it and he wouldn't even if he had been around when I made it! He has his mind set on certain things that he is totally unwilling to try - and this drink would be one of them. So I made it to try when he wasn't here! 😉
