About the Author
When I wake up in the morning, my very first thought is: "I'm SO gonna stick to my diet today." And after that: "Momma needs a cocktail." More than anything else, I care about helping people discover how to use the right foods and the right adult beverages to improve their looks, health, and life. In my world, having unreasonable amounts of fun is an absolute necessity. Having unreasonable amounts of shoes is fun, too. Being crazy-busy is overrated, but boredom is a definite NO. Striving to be cuter/smarter/funnier/cooler than everyone you know is totally reasonable. When I die, I want to be remembered as the person who took the taboos out of booze, and who inspired others to drink their way to health and wellness. Because at the end of the day, having it all is what really matters.

In her introduction, Bennett writes, “Why Bloody Marys? Come on. Anyone can pour wine into a glass and pronounce it ‘eviscerated’ or ‘petillant,’ but who else besides Mary can inspired a whole dossier?”
As if you needed an excuse to enjoy this drink, Bennett’s book contains 45 different Bloody Mary recipes designed to fit any mood and situation.
There’s the “Remind me why I’m going skydiving tomorrow,” a recipe that’s equal parts gumption and liquid courage; the “We should go to Hawaii more often,” featuring ginger and Thai basil; and more.
For Wisconsin folk, there’s even the “Go Packers,” an Official Packers Bloody Mary Tailgate Recipe.
Each recipe is accompanied by Bennett’s wit and snark—use caution when drinking a Bloody while reading this book… snorting out Bloody Marys, in particular ones that contain hot sauce, pepper and/or horseradish, could really hurt.
For a garnish, Bennett throws in some gems such as 6 women who have been nicknamed Bloody Mary throughout history; variations of the Bloody Mary containing different ingredients than your typical tomato juice and vodka combo (i.e. the “Bloody Fairy”—tomato juice and absinthe!); and more.
If you’re a fan of the Bloody, you’ll want to make sure to devour this book.
