Thanksgiving is full of traditions… one of my family favorites is bloody marys on Thanksgiving morning!

bloody mary + michelada recipes | Appetites Anonymous



We all wake up, drink coffee, then while still in pjs after the coffee is gone… we consume the most delicious and spicy bloody marys everrrrr. Stuffed with all the fixins’ like bacon, olives, pickles, celery, you name it! Now I’m a pretty big fan of Zing Zang bloody mary mix and that’s usually what we use (plus a few extra dashes of hot sauce, worcestershire sauce, pickle juice – oh and some lime) on Thanksgiving morning since we’re about to be cooking for like 8 hours BUT when I want to enjoy a homemade bloody mary and don’t have Zing Zang on hand… this is my go to recipe.

And while we’re on the topic of bloody marys, I should mention that I also freaking love the michelada! My sister, Madeline, introduced me to this amazing cocktail a few years ago (she’s so cool and hip). Ever had aΒ michelada?! Now I’m absolutely NOT talking about those weird and disgusting Budweiser Chelata things because eww but a REAL DEAL michelada. Well it’s basically bloody mary with beer plus lots of lime. Does that sound delicious or horrible?! Depends if you like beer or not ha! But I love beer so I love the michelada!

Both recipes are below so you can spice up your Thanksgiving πŸ™‚
