Ode to Bloody Caesar

Some days are just bloody days. Bloody days can be pregame days. Some bloody days are holidays. Most bloody days are full of melancholy.

There isn’t a perfect bloody recipe. Some are better than others, most just follow the mood. I like them light, refreshing, and citrusy. Then, I like them spicy. Then, I like them hearty. I don’t like it when a cutesy bartender puts half the rawbar or a BLT on the top of it.

Today I made a Bloody Caesar. It was good . . .
