SOTI I saw this as a cure for a hangover:
Okay, this looks like something an expensive hotel would serve, just to build the tab. Here’s my revision:
Adding anything but ice or water to booze makes expensive booze taste like cheap booze, and the more extraneous shit you add, the worse. Don’t ask me how I know this.
If you really want to have food wrapped around booze, pour a glass of anything into a bowl of cold minestrone. It won’t make you any sicker than a Bloody Mary, and is much cheaper. Don’t ask me how I know this, either.
And if you MUST have a Bloody Mary: vodka + tomato juice, with maybe a little salt and pepper.
