What a great episode! Lynn and I really enjoyed this savory mix. Comforting like a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich! Interesting company. Here’s a snippet from their website:

We started with the Original Recipe. Smooth and savory on its own- No vodka. Hints of garlic, tomato, and cucumber with a smooth finish. We add vodka and the cucumber steps to the front of the palate. Light and quite drinkable!
The Bold and Spicy mix is infused with ghost pepper. I was a little nervous. On its own the texture is no different than the Original but there’s a distinct pepper flavor- not too hot- more like a chili aftertaste. Tasty! We add vodka and Wow! It get’s hotter! The cucumber steps forward and a little sweetness emerges. Nice!
We both like this mix- again, Lynn prefers the milder Original Recipe and I prefer the Bold and Spicy.
Well, Lynn was hounding me to do a song for a few weeks and today she got her wish. In a late-night Codiene, Prednisone, and Jagermiester infused moment I recorded this cover of a Fred Eaglesmith song, Trucker Speed.
Share this. Join next week for a review of Lola’s Bloody Mary Mix. I promise Lynn will sing next time!!
