Bloody Marys are my favorite Sunday brunch cocktail, the spicier the better as far as I’m concerned. Nothing beats a good homemade Bloody Mary, but if you don’t have the time or the inclination to mix up a pitcher of Bloody Marys from scratch, try Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix. To DIE for if you like your Bloody Marys with a little heat on ‘em!
I learned about ZingZang from my BFF Portia’s mom a few weeks ago in Detroit while having lunch at the Renaissance Center. I admit it, I was a little hung over from the night before and 45 minutes in the gym did very little to help me over the hump. So, I decided to bite the hair of the dog that bit me. I ordered a Bloody Mary to cure what was ailing me (for the uninitiated, Bloody Marys are supposed to cure hangovers). Originally from Mississippi, and back in the day one of the leading tastemakers in “The D”, Mrs. R sang the praises of ZingZang in a way that made both me and my other BFFs, Nicole and April, want to try it immediately. I went out and bought it as soon as I got back to NYC. And, Mrs. R was right, ZingZang did not disappoint. So, while I’d prefer to whip up a batch of Bloody Marys from scratch, I now have a great secret substitute. I think I’m taking some ZingZang up to the Vineyard this Summer. Thanks Pearl!
