thirsty thursday: stovetop bloody mary

Happy Thirsty Thursday! My favorite day of the week :)

stovetop bloody marys! the only way to make a bloody mary!For the past month, I’ve been making nothing but Valentine’s drinks for Thirsty Thursdays. They were all very tasty, but I was a little worn out on fruity pink and purple cocktails! Pat was too.  We needed a change-up.  Stovetop Bloody Marys were just the ticket!

stovetop bloody marys! the only way to make a bloody mary!I’ve had a couple Bloody Marys in my life, and to be honest, I didn’t love them.  Until now.  I swear its because I cooked these on the stove.  All of the flavors blended so well.  It was delicious!

stovetop bloody marys! the only way to make a bloody mary!I got this recipe from my friend Chris at work.  His wife reads the blog (HI JULIA!) and they were so sweet to think of me with this drink.  This was Chris’s grandma’s SECRET recipe for the perfect bloody mary.  We are all very very lucky to be in on the secret!  I followed it exactly, and I hope his grandma would be proud of how they turned out.  It really is the most delicious bloody mary I have ever tasted!

stovetop bloody marys! the only way to make a bloody mary!You could garnish these bad boys with so many different things.  I chose tomato, lemon, olives, and pickles.  I saw lots of variations on Pinterest.  I even saw one with mini cheeseburgers as a garnish!! That’s hilarious, but is wayyyy too much work for me!

    Your food photos are gorgeous! I really need to get a good camera and stop using my iPhone. And, I need way better lighting in my kitchen! I was watching Last Vegas last night and there was a conversation about Bloody Marys. I’ve never actually tried them! I think I’ll give this a try!
