August Giveaway: Win a Bloody Mary Book Bundle!


As you all know, I have had books and bloody marys on my mind lately.  So I thought, why not combine them for an awesome triple threat August giveaway! This month, I am happy to be giving away three bloody mary books with the help of Susan Fiebig from The Bloody Trail and Judy Bennett from Bloody Marys: Sanguine Solutions for a Slew of Situations.

Here's what you'll get:

The Bloody Trail: In Quest of the Best Wisconsin Bloody Marys, by Susan Fiebig

The Bloody TrailFrom The Bloody Trail website:

"In her 10-year search, Susan Fiebig found that Wisconsin bartenders know how to make delicious Bloody Marys using secret mix recipes and unique garnishes. Fiebig has developed a grading system that separates the very tastiest drinks from the not-so-tasty. Wisconsin bartenders serve their unique Bloody Marys with a 'beer chaser', not common in other regions of the country. The Bloody Trail examines the origin of the drink, details the Bloody Criteria that defines the Best Bloody Marys, and describes each of the Top 10 establishments that serve the most tasty and scrumptious Bloodys.

The Bloody Trail is NOT a how-to book; it is a guidebook that includes fascinating tidbits at each turn of the page. The Bloody Trail is both entertaining and informative. Its' design allows you to 'take it with you' as you explore The Bloody Trail to the Best Bloody Marys in Wisconsin."

Also, be on the the look out for Susan's second book, debuting in October 2015.

Bloody MarysFrom Judy's website:

"No matter what kind of day you’ve had, or what kind of night you have planned, there is a Bloody Mary that will set just the right mood. Let’s be honest: wine is boring. Martinis are soooo done. Beer is for frat boys. Bloody Marys are versatile, edgy, and user-friendly. So whether you’re watching carbs , watching porn, or just watching a sunset, you’re sure to find a Bloody Mary that’s perfect for the occasion.

You will:

  • discover 45 distinctive Bloody Mary recipes
  • understand their unique “personalities”
  • be able to craft a Bloody Mary for any mood or occasion
  • meet the real-life Bloody Marys that walk among us
  • dazzle your friends with Bloody Mary trivia, sightings, historical data, and urban legends
  • never look at vegetables the same way again."

FYI, if you're not already signed up for Judy's monthly newsletter "The Bloody Mary Tattler," I would definitely recommend signing up.  It's quite entertaining.
