Bloody Bull

One of the first times I ever had a Bloody Mary was on a train trip with my husband, his brother and my sister-in-law. We were traveling from Washington D.C. to Ohio. We made a lovely discovery...on the breakfast menu (along with juices and tea or coffee) you could also order Bloody Marys and Screwdrivers. Well, once we had established that we could order dinner off of the breakfast menu, we ended up in a bizarre farce as we tried to order drinks and quickly deteriorated from “1 Bloody Mary, and 2 Screwdrivers” to “1 red and 2 orange... wait, make that 2 red and 3 orange”. That was a great train trip.

Well when my husband first saw Jay D’s Louisiana Barbecue Sauce that was the only thing he could talk about. That Bloody Mary and that train trip. Why, I just had to make him this Bloody Bull drink to get him to stop!
