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!

Significant Impact of COVID-19 on Hot Fill Packaging in Food & Beverage Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Hot Fill Packaging in Food and Beverage Industry The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the industrial and commercial progress of most of the regions in the world. The persistence of the COVID-19 for a longer period has adversely affected the most vulnerable groups of the population including adults aged more than 60 years, mothers, and children. Globally, countries are expecting a drastic decline in dietary quality in low- and middle-income countries as a result of loss of income, the shutdown of businesses, human and goods movement restrictions imposed by governments, de-globalization, and breakdown of the supply chain of food markets due to both demand shocks and supply constraints. Healthcare facilities have been consistently giving their best to combat COVID-19 and helping resources to divert from nutritional care including micronutrient supplementation, prevention, and treatment of child malnutrition. In normal times, malnutrition remains a multidimensional problem and during the pandemic situation, it has taken a major hit. Thus, the population will be more focused on building higher immunity levels during the post-crisis situation. Furthermore, due to COVID-19, supply, import-export, and demand have been affected as there was less supply the prices of food products and that impacted the demand of the global hot fill packaging market.

Once the container is filled and sealed it can be inverted and held in the air for three minutes before being cooled by water. Inverting of the package is done to pasteurize the headspace and lid, this method has been used in industry for filling into glass jars, plastic trays, cartons, and pouches.

Pack food and drinks in this sustainable Lunchbox set!
Charlie and the chocolate factory is an iconic story that both kids and adults alike love. One may have read Ronald Dahl’s creation, the novel of 1964 that become a bestseller, or the 1974 movie starring Gene Wilder as the infamous Willy Wonka, or the most recent one, Tim Burton’s reimagination of 2005 box-office hit of 2005 that has Johnny Depp as the chocolate chocolatier. Every person has a favorite from these magical stories and today, here I am presenting the set of NICA'S Lunchbox and a Thermos of 2005 Charlie and the chocolate factory edition. This set is a must for the fans of the franchise as it has a lot of characteristics that not only make it a memento of the film but a gift or thing that is useful in real life. The lunchbox features: •            The design What I absolutely adored about this metal box is that the design is not all kiddish. It has the main character of the movie, Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka it is printed on both sides but the colors and the illustrations are not done in a way that only children could use it. People, especially the fans of the story, will like it and have no problem or embarrassment while carrying it, no matter the age. •            The quality of the printing. Coming to the judge on the printing process, on a scale of 10, I would definitely give it a 9. The main reason being that in my past experiences I’ve seen that most of the metal-made objects lose their illustrations or artwork as they get scrubbed, washed, and whatnot. But even after the use of many months, the printing has not all gotten off. •            Sustainability As I have already pointed out, I have been using this for a long time now and I’m very happy to say that not only the company has done a good job on the printing but a fine work on their quality inspection as well. The metal doesn’t get bent or scratched easily and the food inside does stay warm for a good amount of time. The drink container/thermos: •            Now, we also get a Thermos with our package and I am pleased to announce that it is amazing in terms of the artwork, quantity hold, and material as well. •            I loved the fact that the picture of the Willy Wonka chosen is different on the lunch and the drink container is different. In this Thermos, we get a more close-up shot of Johnny, and that gives the whole set diversity. •            The lid of the Thermos is like the one that can act as your cup and since the material is spot on, you can pour either very hot or cold beverages in it and it wouldn’t affect the cup at all. I would highly suggest checking out another website to sell stuff other than eBay for other gift sets that people would love to receive.
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.

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.

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.
Wedding Cocktail Hour - Don't Go Broke!
Not too long ago I remember giving sage advice to a mother of the bride about cocktail hour. She was so resolute in scrimping and saving on every last inch of the wedding prep that she actually over-spent. Clearly she didn't listen to a word I said. Well that was a complete and utter waste. My mouth was moving. Sounds were coming out. And what I could have been doing is what I should have been doing: pouring another glass of wine. Here's how you keep the booze flowing without going broke: 1. Partner with your favorite bar. Let them provide the beer and wine with a limited cocktail menu. 2. Limited doesn't mean cut-off. It means limited variety. 3. Keep your cocktails to three signature drinks. TIP By keeping your cocktails liquor base the same, you can reduce your booze costs dramatically. Consider doing rum cocktails or vodka cocktails. The Greyhound Cocktail Ingredients Freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice (strained of pulp and seeds) Flaky sea salt or kosher salt Agave nectar Ruby red grapefruit wedges, for garnish Procedures 1. Fill a short glass to the top with ice. 2. Pour in grapefruit tarragon infused vodka ⅓ of the way. 3. Fill the remaining ⅔ with freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice. 4. Transfer liquids and ice to a cocktail shaker. Add a small pinch of flaky sea salt, then add agave nectar to taste*. 5. Shake vigorously until well chilled. 6. Pop off the top of your cocktail shaker and pour everything (drink and ice) back into the short glass. Garnish with a fresh wedge of ruby red grapefruit. Makes 1 drink. The White Lady Cocktail Ingredients ice 4 parts dry gin such as Martin Miller's or Beefeater (2 ounces) 1 part Cointreau (1/2 ounce) 1 part fresh lemon juice (1/2 ounce) Procedures 1. Add the gin, Cointreau and lemon juice to a shaker filled with ice. 2. Shake well and strain into a cocktail glass. Serve. The Clover Club Cocktail Ingredients 1 egg white 1/2 oz lemon juice 1 oz grenadine 2 oz Plymouth gin Procedures 1. Combine liquids and egg white. 2. Shake vigorously (you want your egg white to get super frothy!) 3. Strain and pour into a coupe. Garnish with a couple of fresh raspberries. The Virgin Mojito Mocktail Ingredients 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon of fine granulated sugar 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice 15 mint leaves 1 cup club soda Procedures 1. Combine sugar, lime juice, and mint leaves in cocktail shaker. 2. Muddle mint and add about eight ice cubes and shake well. 3. Pour mixture in glasses and top with club soda. Serves two.
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!
Open Letter: Two Monday Cocktails
Dear Vinglers, Recently, (as in 90 seconds ago), I shared a card about how I learned the secret of turning Tuesday into Friday, which you can read here. However, that is not why I am writing you this card. You see, now that we discovered how to get rid of Wednesday and Thursday through Coconut Margaritas, I am MOSTLY interested in ditching Mondays altogether. I know there's a way of doing it. But how? Does anyone know? I've looked into chakras, harmonics, frequencies and even holographics...but none of that seems to work. If Ed Leedskalnin can levitate monolithic rocks to create and build Coral Castle, can't we unlock the mystery that traps us into work weeks that consistently begin with Mondays?! I apologize if I seem a bit worked up; I know the truth is out there. Perhaps if we are diligent, and listen to Coast To Coast AM, then we will be that much closer to solving this elusive conundrum. Until then, attached is the fabulous Pomelo Flush for your mouth and the Citron Soak for your sore and aching feet, that every Monday brings. Let's look both ways, hold hands, and cross the road together! Always, @MarshallEdgar Foot Cocktail 1 cup of Epsom Salt 1 cup of Sea Salt 2 cups of Baking Soda 4 cups of hot water 6-8 drops of Lavender essential oil --------------------------- 1 grapefruit sliced 1 orange sliced 2 limes sliced 2 fresh rosemary sprigs In a large, clean container, mix salts, soda, oil and water. Close with lid or cap and shake vigorously. In a pan of HOT WATER (as hot as you can stand), add sliced fruits and rosemary. Stir in 1/2 - 3/4 cup of water salt from container into pan. Save the rest for another time. Soak feet like this for 30 minutes. Try this 3 times a week for two weeks, dropping to once a week. @allischaaff @danidee @rodiziketan @buddyesd @nicolejb @alywoah @TerrecaRiley @yernaya @jeff4122 @NixonWoman @FrancheskaOrtiz @clochette30 @beywatch @britneyw @VeronicaCuevas @ElizabethSerna @AlaishaRenise @littlelegs @CorlethaTurner @alwaysdream @kclvrhse @LizArnone @MrsBaxter @Heartofgold @MargaretPearson
