I’m getting to work on a costume that ISN’T RELATED TO BURNING MAN.
I’m so excited!
It’s for the Beerhound group I’m a part of.
They’re doing a Sazerac Safari!
And my favorite cocktail?
And the theme???
You guessed it!
I actually have nothing even REMOTELY safari-esque with the exception of some khaki cropped pants and an olive green jacket.
But I wanted A DRESS.
A safari dress.
With lots of pockets and a trim little belt.
And lo and behold, I FOUND IT!
Granted, I found a few dresses that were more suitable, but overall I’m pleased with this dress.
I have a nice belt to go with it.
And I bought a pith helmet, khaki boots and some accessories:
Just to be cheeky and to FULLY EMBRACE THE THEME.
Because I considered a nice, floppy, wide-brimmed hat instead, which I would get WAY MORE USE OUT OF.
But you know, YOLO!
I LOVE Bloody Mary’s.
There’s just something about a savory cocktail in the morning that really gets me going.
I’m planning on doing Bloody Mary’s with breakfast at UnSCruz.
This requires some planning and a lot of pickled food.
This was my inspiration:
This is what I wound up with I forgot to include the bacon :-(
Not exactly the snazziest Bloody Mary I’ve ever seen.
My tricks for making a tasty Bloody Mary is:
- Use celery salt
- Always add a little extra vodka
- Trimmings include bacon, shrimp, celery, pepperoncini, asparagus, cheese, cornichons, and olives
People take their Bloody Mary’s very seriously.
One year, on playa, there was a competition to see who could find the perfect BRC Bloody Mary.
THIS would be my choice:
Check out that burger hanging off the glass. . . $25 Bloody Mary, anyone?
Regardless if you like Bloody Mary’s or if you are wrong, one thing is for sure.
Two hours after a Bloody Mary I am ready for a nap.
