Enjoy a spicy twist on a Bloody Mary by adding wasabi to your cocktail. There is no need for a mixer when you can use healthy ingredients you have on hand.
I’m dreaming of a
White Christmas. Wrong – it is more like a Caribbean vacation. This is in spite of the reality that a vacation is not going to happen this year. We are now almost nine months with my husband being out of a job. I’m sure a lot of you can relate to the lack of funds. Since we cannot go on a vacation, I am bringing the vacation to us. With this hope in mind, I decided to relive one of my favorite parts of a past vacation.
More and more I am finding it is the little things that can help bring some joy and stress relieve to our current situation. In this case, it is a Bloody Mary. Even on vacation I try to be mindful of my alcohol consumption so I always put a limit on it. One day of vacation I allow myself to enjoy the Bloody Mary Bar and make up my own Bloody Mary with a mix of fun add ins like olives, bacon and so much more.
In fact the first time I went a little overboard with the ingredients and ended up not enjoying the Bloody Mary. So next time I was much more discriminating. This is definitely a case of less is more. I so thoroughly enjoyed sipping on my Bloody Mary while playing Bingo that I did the same thing the next year. I like my Bloody Mary spicy and peppery. So you will find that I rimmed my glass with salt and pepper. It is lip-smacking good. In addition I used wasabi to create a fun spicy kick to this Bloody Mary. While I won’t be sipping on it while playing Bingo, I can sip this cocktail and remember the feeling of relaxation and joy. That is what it is really about anyway. So sail away with me and a Wasabi Bloody Mary.
