Mommy Juice: Casper’s Bloody Mary Drinks Tour #2

As promised, we have officially launched our third series, “Mommy Juice!” Our very first series, “Happy, Healthy & Loved. Stop the Mommy Wars!” was followed by “From the Mouths of Mommas” and both were a huge hit here on Jelly Bean Journals!

We took a lighthearted approach in creating our Mommy Juice series. Along with loving the term, we hope this group of posts will help fellow moms to sit back, unwind, and enjoy a cocktail. We have a deep love for mocktails, as well, so this series is sure to have something for everyone. After all, we absolutely love enjoying a favorite drink with a great friend. So, here’s to you, girl! Cheers!

Today’s Mommy Juice Pick: Bloody Mary

The Recipe: According to Liquor.com, all you need for a proper Bloody Mary is tomato juice, vodka, and spices.

Why We Picked This Mix: After we completed our first self proclaimed Bloody Mary Tour through Casper, we received some great feedback. So, Cheeky C and I went at it again! We have now visited 9 locally owned establishments and rated their classic Bloody Mary drinks! Below you will find Bloody Mary scores on 4 more Casper, WY businesses from our second tour.

Kerstin got in on the action for this tour, also! It was a special treat to have her in our company. Because she is busy growing N’s little brother in her belly, she helped out with mocktail tastings. You will find her bonus reviews below.

Garnish: 3 = Yeah, There They Are!

Noteworthy: This drink was mixed for us in house at the bar and had a nice salt and pepper rim. It was made with a jalapeno vodka and the friendly bar tender came over to our table to see if we were pleased. With the best flavor and most garnished glass of the day, this was our top pick.

Bloody Mary #2 – $5.00

Spice: 3 = Yeah, Too Hot for My Mom!

Flavor: 3 = Yeah, That’s Flavorful!

Noteworthy: We sat at the bar for this tasty blend and loved our bartender. During weekend brunch times this drink sells for $4. It has lime and salt on the rim with a heavy Worcestershire taste. We enjoyed the flavor and spicy kick of this mix!

Bloody Mary #3 – $6.00

Fire Rock

Spice: 2 = Now That’s a Kick

Flavor: 2 = Now I Can Taste It

Garnish: 2 = Now I Can See Them

Noteworthy: The patio at this establishment was the perfect place to enjoy this Bloody Mary. We liked the in house mix and were given the option between “regular” and “spicy.” We went with a combination of the two which tasted great with the Peppar Vodka in our glass.

Bloody Mary #4 – $7.00

Spice: 0 = No Spice Here

Flavor: 1 = A Little Taste

Garnish: 2 = Now I Can See Them

Alcohol Strength: 3 = Yeah, Baby!

Noteworthy: The most potent of all our drinks, this glass got a top rating for alcohol strength! It was served in a small mason jar and poured with Peppar Vodka. It’s meant to be less spicy and on Sundays you can snag a 2 for 1 deal. Perfect for a little Hair of the Dog!
