the solution to all of your problems

TGIF, people.

you have survived another painful work week! time to make some bad decisions and spend saturday morning contemplating why you thought it was a good idea to take your 4th shot of tequila and chase it with a piece of pizza.

never fear, i am here to solve all of your problems.

they come in all shapes and sizes, often times fluctuating from a standard cocktail to a full on breakfast buffet…

dear baby Jesus…

in it’s most primitive state, the bloody mary is a very simple equation: bloody mary mix/tomato juice + vodka. but during the evolution of this classic hangover-remedy, we have turned it into a craft, some might even call it an art. during my days at dingus magees, some may have even called it a “life saver.” no matter what you call it, my bloody mary recipe has been known to revive the dead and can possibly make you forget you drunkenly called your ex-boyfriend… again.


  • 1 can of v8 vegetable juice OR approx. 2 cups bloody mary mix (I prefer zing zang)
  • 2 shots of vodka (up the amount depending on the amount of pain you are in)
  • 1 tbsp. of old bay seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. of coarse salt
  • 1 tsp. of pepper
  • 1 tbsp. of hot sauce (i prefer texas pete)
  • 2 slices of lime or lemon
  • 1 tsp. of pickle juice
  • 1 tsp. of worcestershire
  • 1 slice of bacon
  • 3 olives
  • 1 tsp. of olive juice


  1. pull yourself together. you’re going to be okay. you are moments away from ending your suffering.
  2. combine ice, bloody mary mix, vodka, worcestershire, pickle juice, hot sauce, olive juice, juice of one of the slices of lime/lemon, and pepper in your glass.
  3. take another glass and pour the liquid back and forth to thoroughly mix all ingredients.
  4. combine old bay seasoning and coarse salt on a small plate.
  5. take your slice of lemon/lime and cut it almost in half. drag the lemon around the rim of the glass. this will create an adhesive for the old bay and coarse salt. later, you can attach this lemon to the side of your beverage for a little extra class.
  6. place your glass rim-side down into the seasonings and get as much of the seasoning to stick to the rim as possible.
  7. pour all liquid and ice into the salted-rim glass.
  8. use a stirring straw, stab the olives through the center to create a little spear of salty delicious-ness.
  9. place the bacon in the glass and the olive spear on top and drink.
