La Crosse Distillery-Field Notes
Whose corn-based vodka is just that, 100% Midwestern organic yellow dent corn. Besides the yeast and enzymes they use to break down the sugars in the corn, there’s nothing else used to make this spirit. It is double-distilled and filtered for an easy finish.

Last Episode/ Review: Willie Wisely and Mary’s Mix CBD- Smokin Hemp Porter Chasers from PSB
Word of the Day:”BEER ”
Company We Review : Trader Joe’s Bloody Mary Mix
From the Website: “With tangy tomato purée, briny clam juice, and a savory spice blend, Trader Joe’s Bloody Mary Mixer stands up to any homemade version. Simply add vodka, ice, and garnish with abandon to recreate this classic brunch beverage.”
Serious Eats listed it as a top ten pick (but they also listed Tabasco and McLures) they had this to say:
Trader Joe’s Bloody Mary Mixer with Clam Juice This mix smells super-tomatoey and there’s a ton of celery flavor. It’s thick, rich, and a little on the sweet side, but it’s not spicy at all. It would be a great starting point, though—just add hot sauce and a squeeze of fresh lemon and you’d probably be good to go (a little fresh horseradish, of course, wouldn’t hurt.)
Onto the ingredients:
