Dear Bacon Bloody Mary,

I had never fathomed such a lovely start to a morning until a recent and gorgeous July Sunday in Napa Valley.

“Here,” Kristin had said when we discussed our post-winery breakfast between she, Abby and I. “The Boon Fly Cafe.”

She read some reviews, and the three of us were off to the cute little farmhouse-style restaurant.

BBM, I never knew you, Β such a lovely treat existed. But there, in the air dining room of Boon Fly Cafe, I saw your first mention, written neatly in white chalk on a blackboard.

Bacon. Bloody. Mary

My eyes lit up.

Bacon. Vodka. Tomato. Yes. Please.

And so, we sat down and ordered.

I knew the moment I laid eyes on you … Your crunchy bacon goodness in a sea of spicy tomatoey cocktail. Heaven.

I don’t think I could have paced myself if I tried.

Oh, bacon … You were perfection. And, when dunked into my drink, little crunchy bite after little crunchy bite … There was little I could do to keep from finishing you off before my eggs were served.

And yet, I tried.

And when you were gone, I savored every last bit of the remaining drink. The cold spicy sweetness rolling over my tongue, down my throat.

Oh, BBM. I love you so.

Cheers to being the best momentary pause in Napa wine drinking history.

Yours truly,

D

  1. I LOVE IT! This summer I spent as much time as I could getting acquainted with new Bloody Mary recipes, I have to say I never came across this. Sounds like heaven (even if a bit strange at first!).

  2. I’m seriously going out to get a caesar right now because of this. Think it would be weird if I asked the bar to put bacon in it? haha… but for real… caesars are better than bloody marys. GO CANADA!
