What a great idea - I especially like the garnish. I'll be giving it a try as soon as I get the pickled okra.

What a great jump start! I love a good spicy Bloody Mary! Have a fun time in NOLA! I envy you as it's one of my favorite cities.

Beautiful! You are so creative!

New Orleans is my kinda town. You MUST have dinner at Tujagues while you're there! :)

Perfect timing. We went to the bay front to a outdoor tiki bar/grill for breakfast and my husband asked if we had some bloody mary mix at home (on Sundays we can't order before noon in a restaurant). I didn't have the mix but did have some V8, and so I was going to look up some BM recipes. Thanks! Have fun in New Orleans.

This looks perfect!! I had a bloody mary at home yesterday, but it wasn't nearly as good as this one looks :) My idea of the perfect Sunday definitely involves a bloody mary :)

The okra in the glass is cool. That really does seem Cajun. Have a great trip. I wish that we were going to New Orleans too.
