I Have a New Favorite Drink

I am not really much of a drinker, but I do enjoy having a couple of glasses of wine when a group of us go camping every summer. My husband and I along with anywhere from four to ten others rent a lodge each summer for six days. We just reconnect with one another and forget about the chaos of the other 359 days of the year. This last summer, it was so relaxing, but one thing did change for me. It was my first time to try a drink made with Bloody Mary seasoning that my best friend had brought with her.

I honestly did not think that I would like it at all, because I am not one to try drinks like that. I usually just sip on wine and let the others try the harder stuff. However, I did agree to at least try one glass just to humor her. Well, the joke was apparently on me because I really enjoyed it a lot. Actually, I liked it better than the wine that I had been drinking for years prior to trying it. I have tried Bloody Mary drinks in the past, but none of them had ever tasted like this did.

When I asked her what it was, she showed me the bottle that it comes in. It is just a drink mix that she added to some vodka and tomato juice, but it tasted absolutely perfect. I drank two glasses that first night, and I had quite a few in the other nights that followed. I still stuck to my two drink limit, but those two drinks were a lot tastier than the wine that I used to drink. I now by the seasoning mix myself so I can enjoy one of my Bloody Mary drinks on the weekends!
