With our  Seattle Seahawks battling it out

in the NFC playoffs  against the Atlanta Falcons on

Sunday morning, thought it would

be a great time to spice up  that

classic game day  & brunch cocktail favorite…

The Bloody Mary.

My Bloody Mary recipe, has a tiny twist,

an Asian  twist.  I added a little wasabi  paste,

fresh  lime

pickled  ginger,

into the cocktail mix. Rolled

cucumber ribbons, make for a

refreshing garnish!

I’ve already set up a my modest  game day 

Bloody Mary station.  Just a tray stand, topped with 

an antique pizza board.

The Bloody Mary station includes:

bamboo picks, Seahawk  Blue straws & 

Hawk  green, cucumber & lime garnishes.

I’m refreshment  ready,

for the game they’re calling,

‘the battle of the birds’…

Good luck Seattle Seahawks!

We’re  sure cheering for ya!
