When we became aged adequate to compensate courtesy to my folks’ weekend morning rituals, we couldn’t assistance though notice that once a coffee was dry—like clockwork—it was time for a “Bloody.” In my younger days, my dad, Scott, kept a mixture in a pantry, tighten during hand. As my brothers and we grew comparison and over for college, my relatives fast began holding their uncover on a road. They’d never transport though their Bloody Mary “kit,” that began simply as an additional receptacle bag pressed with mixture though grew most some-more worldly with time.
As my father tells it, my mother’s grandfather Jack Rudy always trafficked with a splash pack that enclosed Wild Turkey 101, a shot glass, a blending spoon, and 4 glasses, orderly stowed in a hard-sided box like a tiny square of luggage. After they listened a story, some dear friends gave my relatives a identical kit: a tiny soft-sided cooler with particular compartments, which my father has used for over a decade to receptacle his “fixin’s.” And like any correct Kentuckian, he also totes a bottle of bourbon, tucked into a corner.
Even though—sacrilege—I’m not a large fan of Bloody Marys myself, over a years I’ve still attempted to ideal them during my restaurants. But zero seems to live adult to my father’s recipe.
