Origin of Bloody Mary

This drink is believed by many to be the perfect hangover cure. A Bloody Mary is made up of vodka, tomato juice, and cayenne pepper and Tabasco or Worcester Sauce.

The drink is said to have been named after the Catholic Queen Mary I (1516-58), nicknamed Bloody Mary due to her relentless pursuit of Protestant dissenters, of whom nearly 300 were burned at the stake. The tomato juice is thought to resemble the blood she spilled.

'Merica Burger

Received this from my niece and a friend on Facebook. Too good not to share. LINK

California burger chain Slater's 50/50 has a menu that features a burger made of 100 percent ground bacon and comes topped with a slice of thick-cut bacon, bacon island dressing, and bacon flavored cheddar cheese. It's only non-bacon topping is a sunny-side-up egg. Alas, it is only offered in July and it is called 'Merica

Its regular flagship burger is made of half ground beef and half ground bacon.

The 'Merica follows previous burgers-of-the-month, including a Pulled Pork Burger and a Chili Cheese Frito Burger. Slater's offers several other bacon-themed goodies, including a bacon brownie and the Bakon Mary, a twist on the Bloody Mary cocktail featuring bacon-infused vodka, a rim of bacon salt and a slice of thick-cut bacon as garnish. Almost makes me wish I was still back there, except for the fact that it is California.

Top Seven Uses for Vodka

Fill a spray bottle with vodka and spray on shower mold. Let set fifteen minutes and wash away.

Use vodka to spray on insects in the yard to get rid of them.

Pour vodka on skin that has come into contact with poison ivy, and the alcohol will wash away much of the itchy urushiol oil. Saw this one on Mythbusters.

Keep your clothes smelling fresher with vodka by spritzing then hang to dry in a well-ventilated area. Vodka kills odor-causing bacteria, but doesn't leave a scent when dry.

Moisten a soft, clean cloth with vodka, then rub chrome or porcelain for a sparkling surface.

Add a few drops of vodka and a teaspoon of sugar to the water in your flower vase to keep your flowers fresh longer. Change with fresh ingredients daily.

Add a jigger of vodka to a 12-ounce bottle of shampoo for squeaky clean and shiny hair.

Of course the best use of vodka is to buy some bacon vodka and make the perfect morning Bloody Mary.
