Now onto to our Ski Mama Bloody Mary from one of our favorite ski moms, Kim-Marie from Luxury Travel Mom....
Olives - any kind - try to avoid the ones with pits
Shrimp - get the fully cooked shrimp in the freezer section
Wood skewers used for shish kabobs
Vodka - we like ours spicy like this Absolute Peppar
BloodyMary Mix - even V8 will do in a pinch
More pouring, less measuring! I love this tip from Kim-Marie. "Learn to count a shot like a bartender," says Kim-Marie. "Think waltz timing - and a 1 - 2 - 3 - 4. Two is a half shot, four is a full shot."
- Fill glass with ice.
- Skewer all your veggies and shrimp.
- Pour vodka shot.
- Add BloodyMary mix or V8 Juice.
- Put skewer in upside down so all the shrimp and olive soak.
Is it a cocktail? Is it a salad? Whatever you choose to call it, cheers to you and here's to a wonderful 2017! Cheers!
