The ultimate comfort cocktail?

It could be the comfort cocktail to end all comfort cocktails.

This weekend, Owl Meat sent me a link to the recipe for the Bloody Bacon & Cheese. It's made with grilled cheese, bacon, tomato soup, garlic salt, ground pepper and sun dried tomato-infused vodka. I knew vodka comes in a trillion different flavors these days, but sun dried tomato-infused? Really?

Here's a video where two mixologists guide you through the recipe. I love how the grilled cheese is actually used as a garnish. Evan, can you make this and report back to us? You are Midnight Sun's resident mixologist, after all ...

Wow, I thought I hallucinated that.

Unrelated item: Thank you to my secret friend who sent me (via Sam) the Red Owl Meat Guide cook book for chuck roast (1975 price 29¢).

It still has a coupon for 20¢ off Occident flour which expired in 1976.

Many overly vibrant color photos of meat, meat and more meat. Food photography sure has come a long way since then. It looks like CSI Chuck Roast.

So many questions, no answers. Thank you?

Pat and I are ON IT.

They also make something, God help me, called the McNuggetini:

Sam, how about bacon in a bloody mary? I will try it out this weekend and let you know if it works out.

Yo, Owl Meat Guido-
Please post the ingredients of your Secret Friend's Chuck Roastini.Sounds delish.

It's a whole booklet of many vintage chuck roast recipes from the exotic 1970s. I'm saving the recipes for my next key party
