Bloody Mary Three Ways

For as simple as the Bloody Mary is, it sure has come into its own complications, additions, and turn-abouts. It's pushing noon here, so to whet your liquid lunch appetite, here are three different takes on the spicy beta keratin beverage:

1. Frozen Bloody Mary

2 ounces vodka
Bloody Mary mix, frozen into ice cubes
Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco
Fresh lemon juice
Liquid Smoke
4 drops Hellfire bitters
In a blender combine all ingredients. Add a splash of bloody mary mix and vodka to get it to mix well. Garnish and serve!

2. Sriracha Bloody Mary

2 ounces vodka
Worcestershire sauce
Sriracha
Lime
Liquid Smoke
In a tall glass, mix bloody mary mix, vodka, a splash of worcestershire sauce, juice of half a lime and two drops of liquid smoke. For a mild spice add 1/2 teaspoon sriracha, for a medium spice add 1 teaspoon sriracha and for something very spicy add 2 teaspoons (or more if you're insane!).

3. Basil Bloody Mary

bloody mary mix
fresh basil
lemon
tabasco
1-2 ounces vodka
worcestershire sauce
olives
pepperjack cheese squares
In the bottom of your glass, tear up a few basil leaves and muddle them with the juice of half a lemon. Fill the glass halfway with bloody mary mix. Add 1 ounce vodka for a mild cocktail or 2 ounces for a more "serious" version. Add 1/2 a teaspoon tabasco and worcestershire sauce.
Top the glass off with ice and add a little more bloody mary mix if needed. Garnish the drink with cubes of pepperjack cheese, fresh basil leaves and olives.
This one is probably my favorite of the three! I'm a sucker for olives!
What's your favorite Bloody Mary rendition? It doesn't have to be one of these; it can be a completely different one!

Japanese Sake Has Amazing Benefits For Your Skin
No worries, you won't get tipsy. If you enjoy a few shots of sake every now and then, you'll be excited to know that the warm drink actually has some amazing benefits when it comes to your skin. Yes, you read that correctly. A Japanese rice wine you usually pair with your sushi can have you waking up like Beyonce. Flawless, honey. According to our favorite girl Chrissy Teigen, she informed viewers on her daytime talk show Fab Life, that the popular skincare brand SK-II's is inspired by none other than sake. While most of us are probably wide mouthed with surprise, for the Japanese, using sake for your skin has been a tradition for years. They even go as far as bathing in the wine on New Year's Day to rid themselves of evil spirits. According the SK-II's, they use an ingredient in their skincare line called pitera ["derived from a strictly controlled natural fermentation process"] which is a strain of yeast found in the sake. How amazing and interesting is that? It's becoming a trend to find skincare products that happen to be infused with this all natural ingredient and the results happen to be amazing. So, grab yourself a shot glass, throw one back and keep scrolling to see a few products that will give you the skin you've always drank -- oops, I meant dreamt of.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot Glasses
In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, here is a deliciously fun way to get your chocolate chip cookie fix during happy hour: Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot Glasses! And in case you think I am making this holiday up, you can find it , and a ton of other national holidays that will blow your mind at National Day Calendar online. This 4 1/2 star recipe comes from All Recipes user, Nicole Faust Hunt, called "Absolutely The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies." To make the shot glasses, you will need a 'popover' pan. Otherwise, you can make these using small cupcake pans. However, the shape of the glass will not look like a shot glass. Ingredients: 1 cup butter flavored shortening (not butter) 3/4 cup white sugar 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons Mexican vanilla extrac t2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 2 cups milk chocolate chips Chocolate candy melts (for later) Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the pan. In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla .Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Press the cookie dough into the popover pan bottom and sides. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Separately, melt the chocolate candy melts in a microwave or a double boiler. Once the cookie shot glasses have cooled, spoon in the candy melts, covering the bottom and inside cookie walls. This will harden relatively quick, or you can put it in the fridge. This coating will prevent liquids from being absorbed into the cookie. After this is all done, fill these with milk for the 20 and younger crowd or click here for imbibery goodness that you can fill your chocolate chip cookie shot glasses with!
Orange Creamsicle Cocktail
I was in the mood all day today for some orange flavored jello. But I don't know how to make it, even with a box and some "add this to this and mix" instructions. I just couldn't be bothered with that. Then I thought of Orange Julius, which would be great with vodka. Yet the more I thought about it, I thought, WHY NOT MAKE SOMETHING NEW FOR A CHANGE?!?!?!?! @rodiziketan is a Vingler that is pretty much an expert in all things mixology. He practically makes a new drink every day. His liquor cabinet is loaded with at least 20 bottles of liquor. He also preaches, "USE FRESH SQUEEZED JUICES" whenever possible. I bring him up because he inspired me to think outside my LA BOX and try something new. You can visit his Cocktails Collection that he created by clicking here. If you like what you see, be sure to follow him, clip and like. He's a cool guy too, so be sure to say hello. Orange Creamsicle Ingredients 3 oz Orange Soda 1 oz Whipped Cream Flavored Vodka 1 TBSP Sweetened Condensed Milk Whipped Cream Sprinkles Directions Add ice to a low-ball style cocktail glass. Add orange soda pop, whipped cream flavored vodka, and sweetened condensed milk Stir gently. Do not over-stir or you will lose the carbonated bubbles Top with whipped cream. Garnish with sprinkles. This is what I wanted. Still has the vodka and orange, but without the ice cream and orange juice. It's got carbonated bubbles, sprinkles and that luxe creamy texture of the condensed milk. And SWEET!
Fall Wedding Must: Caramel Apple Martinis
If you're getting married this Fall and Caramel Apple Martinis are NOT ON YOUR cocktail menu, PLEASE, WHY?! Okay, let's start over. If you're wedding is this Fall, then THIS IS YOUR MUST-HAVE cocktail! The Caramel Apple Martini (or carameltini, as it's sometimes called) is a martini with October leaves, Indian Summer bliss and apple orchard nostalgia. Sounds amazing, right? Let's not delay the imbibery... Caramel Apple Martini Ingredients 2 ounces Apple Cider 2 ounces Caramel Vodka 1 ounce Butterscotch Schnapps Sliced fresh apple, caramel, and / or cinnamon sugar for garnish. Rim your martini glass with caramel or cinnamon sugar. To get the cinnamon sugar to stick to the glass, dip the rim in a little apple cider, then the cinnamon sugar. Combine the apple cider, caramel vodka, and butterscotch schnapps in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Pour mixture into the rimmed martini glass and garnish with a slice of fresh apple. Simple. Delicious. Impossible not to be a favorite! It’s a little on the sweet side, so it would pair very nicely with a salty appetizer. It could also finish up a meal as a substitute for a sweet dessert. And you all remember my advice about cocktail hour, right? Don't make your guests wait around forever between the recessional and for cocktail hour to begin. Drinks and bubbly should be being poured as guests are entering. They should be reaching for a coupe or a high ball. You choose. For more cocktail fabulousness, click here.
