Bloody Avo Mary

Bloody Mary cocktails and I go way back. Okay maybe not way back, but back nonetheless, to 2 years ago. My most dearest friend, Tiny, and I were roadtripping through the deep south in celebration of my college graduation. From our starting point in Pittsburgh we hit Nashville then carried on to Baton Rouge, where we experienced what Tiny dubbed the best day of our lives. And that day started with Bloody Marys.

We’d spent the previous night singing our lungs out at a country music megaconcert involving Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, and Hunter Hayes (yea it was as amazing as it sounds), but our CouchSurfing host was an early riser, so he coaxed us back to life with some homemade, 7am Bloody Marys. The rest of the day was spent pontooning around the bayou, drinking more Bloody Marys, and making our way to New Orleans for a night of bead throwing on Bourbon Street.

In New Orleans they throw anything and everything in a Bloody Mary, including bacon. So we’re putting our own little spin on my most favorite cocktail too by throwing in some creamy, ripe avocado! The rest is super simple: vodka, tomato juice, tabasco, Worschererershiestire (honestly, who can ever spell that right the first time?), lemon, and seasoning. Say hello to the Bloody Avo Mary Cocktail!
