    Bloody Mary

    I followed the Bloody Mary recipe with the smoked ice last year and made a batch for a tailgate for a football game at a bar. The batch lasted less than 10 minutes after providing a few samples. I didn't tell people about the smoked ice and asked them what they thought was different. I had to convince them that you can actually make smoked ice.

    Was a big hit

    FLBuckeye, you posted a topic under 'Recipes' titled 'Bloody Mary'...but there's no recipe here!?!

    Please share your favorite BM recipe here...


    Why does this remind me of the story about why Aggies don't drink iced tea anymore? (The guy who knew how to make ice graduated, or had to leave town anyways.)


      Ok - I'll give it up. This recipe won me a first in a Bloody Mary drink competition back in college. It's been my stand by since. Uses Clamato.

      1-2 Ounces Vodka
      1/2-1 Ounces Lemon Juice (keep the vodka and lemon juice at 2:1)
      2 shakes tabasco
      2 shakes worchestershire
      1 heaping tsp horseradish (more to taste)
      celery salt to cover ice
      fresh ground pepper
      1/8 lime slice, squeezed on top

      Wet the rim of a tall glass with a lime slice and holding it upside down, twist the glass in some celery salt on a plate (optional). Fill the glass with clear ice cubes. Add the vodka, lemon juice, worchestershire and tabasco. Add the horseradish. Shake on enough celery salt to cover the ice well (don't be afraid, use lots). Pour in the clamato juice, reserving about a half inch at the top of the glass and stir well until the salt and horseradish is evenly distributed. Squeeze the lime on top and a pinch of ground pepper. Garnish as desired.

      Cocktail Olives and Onions
      Grilled Shrimp on a long bamboo skewer
      Add a few Clams to the drink

        Nice! Gotta use Clamato, that's the Canadian way! It is called a Caesar, it was invented in my home town at an awesome old school steak house called Caesar's that is still going strong to this day (http://www.caesarssteakhouse.com/home.htm). I always try to do a business lunch there a few times a year.

        Caesar's are some of my fav's. I don't put lemon in mine though. Gotta try this with some smoked ice

      One I learned from tailgating, toss a Slim Jim in there, everybody loves them.
      Edit: It is actually listed as an option in the article...try it anyway!

        Try it with tequila some time instead of vodka.

          Funny - that's where I got the inspiration for this recipe. I was dove hunting in Hermosillo, Mexico and when we got in from the field, they'd make a drink with tequilla, clams, clamato, and lemon juice. I loved it so much, when I got home I experimented with turning it into a bloody mary and the rest was history - as they say.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
