  • oh yes, all things bacon:

    92 PTS GOLD MEDAL BEVERAGE TASTING INSTITUTE 2010. Convincing aromas of fatty smoked bacon with a supple dryish medium body and a caramelized bacon, fig, and limestone finish.

    Bakon Mary
    • 1½ oz. Bakon Vodka in a pint glass filled with ice.
    • Fill glass with tomato juice
    • 1 dash each of celery salt and ground black pepper
    • 2-4 dashes each of Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco

    Shake and pour into a salt rimmed pint glass. Garnish with a celery stalk and your favorite pickled vegetables.

  • Bloody Marys are hugely popular in the morning pass-through town pubs. Had to have me one at Pete & Shorty’s in Clarksville on R-XXXVIII along with one of their ribeye steaks… at 8 ‘o clock in the morning.

  • The difficult thing, as a late starter, is finding a bar or beer garden that still has Bloody Mary’s!! I like everything about starting later in the morning except this!!

    Why don’t you just drink water? Bud is almost the same thing!

  • The Greeks compared drinking tomato juice to drinking energy drinks after workouts… wtf? Are they that stupid over there?

  • The only thing I could derive out of your post, brama, is that you’re name calling Greece. I don’t know if there are any bicyclists there planning on riding Ragbrai. If there is, I really hope they don’t see your comment.

  • RN: The article was about Greek scientists comparing the recovery rates of people who drank tomato juice after a workout to those who drank energy drinks (Monster, Red Bull, etc) after a workout. That’s a no-brainer that the thing filled with caffeine and taurine, which are diuretics, isn’t going to be as beneficial as drinking something that is mainly water and is not a diuretic.

  • Ragbrai Nation: I still have fond memories of the Bloody Mary and ribeye steak sandwich I enjoyed at Pete & Shorty’s during RAGBRAI 2010!! It hit the spot! Alas, I sadly lost the “I Like to Pee Outside” coozie I bought there. We need to go back to Clarksville.
