Bloody good idea
This blog is supposed celebrate books and beverages, specifically adult beverages when discussing that second category. But I haven't done much lately on the beverage front, and it's time to fix that.
To kick off that new commitment, here is a photograph of a terrific Bloody Mary I recently enjoyed. It was served at the Beacon Diner in Hometown, Pennsylvania (diners with a liquor license are one of life's true pleasures). Hometown is a few miles away from our weekend place in Pennsylvania's Pocono mountains.
The nice thing about this Bloody Mary- aside from the variety of neat and complex spices that created a really savory drink- was the addition of several pieces of folded-over pepperoni that were speared through the little plastic sword. The pepperoni really served the drink well, making what's usually a tasty and substantial drink even more, well, tasty and substantial. Great little touch, guys!
