Fancy Bloody Marys

LaureltQ | Dec 19, 201409:26 AM

I work in a pretty loosey-goosey environment, and our small office staff has decided that since we have to work 4 hours on Xmas Eve morning, we'll make an event of it and do a bloody mary brunch. The 3 of us are all bringing 1-2 different bloody mary mixes and a handful of ridiculous garnishes.

I'm gonna try a bloody bull (I have a few cups of homemade grassfed beef stock I'm planning to reduce). I haven't looked into recipes yet, but I'm thinking of garnishing with beef jerky and maybe some steam-roasted garlic or slim-jims.

I also want to do a buffalo chicken one. As far as recipes go, I assume the flavors will be pretty self-explanatory, but probably Franks Red Hot instead of horseradish. I've thought of making a slightly runny whipped bleu cheese sauce out of bleu cheese, silken tofu, and sour cream or something, then garnishing with a piece of celery, a deep fried drumette, and a skewer with some bigger chunks of roquefort or similar.

What do you think? What are your favorite gimmicky bloody marys?
