12 Days of Drinking -Day 8

Bloody Mary

Today’s drink was shot on location by our friends at their cabin near Lake Mille Lacs. Andrew and Melissa already make great Bloody Mary’s but I knew they’d love to try a new one. Not only did they to a great job getting all the ingredients, they also walked out on their newly frozen lake to get a few photos for the blog post. Didn’t they do an awesome job!
