Vintage Vine Bloody Mary Bar

It’s no secret that I adore the spicy, mouth-tingling sensation of a Vintage Vine bloody mary.  So for Super Bowl Sunday, I decided to go big or go home with a massive one gallon growler of Vintage Vine Spicy Bloody Mary Mix.

My bloody mary bar contained all the usual fixings: celery, citrus, olives, pepperoncini, a variety of hot sauces and two types of cheddar cheese cubes.

For some added flavor and pizazz, glasses were adorned with a nice spiced rim salt courtesy of Demitri’s RimShot.

And Old Bay Shrimp, Pink Peppercorn Bacon and mini grilled cheese sandwiches provided the final garnish touch.

Game day guests enjoyed crafting their own unique, savory tomato cocktails, and much like the Seahawks, my build-your-own bloody mary bar dominated (until the celebratory shots of course).  As a side “note to self” (and anyone else about to leave their 20s): celebratory shots + over 30 = full day of couch.  Although I did manage to catch up on all my horrible reality television.  Mob Wives?  Couples Therapy?  Real Housewives?  Don’t judge me…
