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.
