Have a Bloody, Buddy!

(1/1)

RottingCorpse:

Mixed my own Bloody Mary this morning and the result wasn't too bad, though it was definitely missing something.

I used:
-tomato juice
-Worcestershire sauce
-horseradish
-celery salt
-black pepper
-a sprinkle of Old Bay seasoning (I forgot to rim the glass with Old Bay though that was my original intent.)

What am I missing?

Vodka!

Ha, ha.

Juice of one lemon or lime, and maybe a dash of wasabi. Also try a splash of red wine or sherry.

monkey!:
You pair of homo-cunts.

Tabasco is what is needed for a Bloody Mary: 4cl vodka, 10cl tomato juice, worcester sauce, tabasco, celery salt, 2 limes (1 squeezed). Shake over ice.

--- Quote ---Ever notice that weird domino effect on planes, where one person orders tomato juice and suddenly the whole cabin is sucking down Mr. & Mrs. Ts? Well, thanks to modern science, we now know beyond a shadow of a doubt that happens because Bloody Marys are, hands down, the best in-flight cocktail.

Exactly how do we know? Because Professor Barry Smith, founder of the Centre for the Study of the Senses at the University of London, says so; and he spent a lot of time "testing"/drinking in-flight beverages. In fact, he's recently published his conclusions -- essentially that tomato juice is the best thing to order at altitude -- in the scholarly journal Flavour.

As you may be aware, not only does cabin pressure affect your palate (by numbing one-third of your taste buds), but engine noise also dulls your senses. Smith theorizes that tomato juice has an umami taste that doesn’t just withstand the effects of altitude, but is enhanced by them. While sweet and salty flavors are difficult to distinguish in the presence of background noise, umami remains unfazed.

“Perhaps all those travelers who order a Bloody Mary after the seatbelt sign has been turned off have figured out intuitively what scientists are only now slowly coming to recognize empirically,” Smith writes, postulating that further research is probably needed. Really? Shocking.

In unrelated news, the tomato juice lobby unequivocally denied providing grant funding to the Centre for the Study of the Senses.

Interesting. I always order tomato juice (not a Bloody Mary), but because I usually get the whole can. And I like it.
