It’s #ThirstyThursday, Thank God. That means that the week is pretty close to the end, and that would mean that I am only three weeks from getting my boot off (hurrah!!) and that I am only a few days away from my kids finally going back to school (hurrah!!) and that I am going to be back in my house before I know it (you get the point.)

Also, for any fellow Seattleites, this is also the first Seahawks game of the season. Uh, it’s kind of a big deal around here.

Spicy Green BLT Bloody Mary

So I made Green Bloody Marys. Green in honor of the Seahawks, and bloody marys, because, well, some of us have an awful lot of tomatoes lying around.

Spicy Green BLT Bloody Mary

For me, if you are going to bother making a bloody mary, it should be spicy. (If you don’t share your sentiments than definitely wait before you add the horseradish and maybe start with half of the jalaleno). I also kind of loved the texture of all of the pureed veggies- it just reminded me of pulp in fruit juice. But if you are going to freak out like there are lawn clippings in your drink- than you should strain the green juice after it comes out of the blender (but realize that you are getting rid of how to justify this cocktail as healthy!!)

Spicy Green BLT Bloody Mary

And why wouldn’t you garnish this with fresh lemon, juicy cherry tomatoes, crunchy fresh lettuce and especially, a crispy, salty perfect strip of bacon? BLT in a drink. Go Hawks.
