They say that the best way to get over a hangover…not to be drunk. Alas for most on January 1st, that is not an option. So they named New Years Day as ‘National Bloody Mary Day’. Now I wasn’t exactly up for a Bloody Mary then as I was till on a champagne high, then moved to mimosas. But as it’s time to prepare for the end of the holiday season and a return to work, Bloody Mary’s to make it through the last couple of days are now in order.
It’s the start of 2015, what better way to kick off your resolutions than by trying something new…Ole Smoky Green Bloody Mary – a Southern spin on America’s favorite brunch cocktail. Whether you’re toasting to the New Year or recovering from a wild night, Ole Smoky is sure to keep those resolutions in check and start your year off with a bang!
Weekend brunch never tasted so good! Put a straw in and pass it around ya’ll!
