Zingy Zangy Tangy!
Now I understand that some people have some issues with the savory-ness of a Bloody, but I think it makes it all the better. Dehydrates you even more! No but really. I love them. I love that they are salty. I love that they are like a meal in an alcoholic beverage. I love that I can use the excuse about getting a serving of vegetables from drinking one. I bet you do by the way. Chock full of tomatoey goodness. I love that they are spicy! And for all you other Bloody Mary lovers out there (ahem Noe), there is nothing better than Zing Zangs Bloody Mary Mix. I remember Christmas 2008 and all people could talk about was Zing Zangs. My fam has this amazing brunch on Christmas morning and my uncle just kept asking "Do you have enough Zing Zangs?? I can bring some!" My mother of course was well stocked, but he brought some anyways. It's spicy, peppery, thick...YUM. It has become a staple at my house, along with my parents, and we go through embarrassing amounts on holidays where drinking before noon is acceptable. Don't be fooled my the lameness of their website. It's delicious! And you MUST put olives in a Bloody Mary. They are a little present at the bottom of the glass! OH and I was talking to the bartender last week at my company track party (as in Churchill Downs party) about the amazing-ness of Bloody Mary's. Not only does she like to add a few olives - but also a shrimp on the cocktail sword! I must try this. We became fast friends.
If you like Bloody Mary's and have not experienced Zing Zangs, you must get some tonight. It is totally acceptable to drink Bloodys in the evening. Trust me, it's fiiiine.
