Hump Day Happy Hour
A Kicked-Up Bloody Mary for Big BrotherBy Julie Fishman
Need a little controversy, conspiracy and all-out chaos in your life? The Big Brother 12 premiere this Thursday on CBS promises all three. Sip a drink as biting as the contestants by stirring up a “Cobb Cocktail,” made for Glo by the bartenders at The Grill on Hollywood in Los Angeles.
A souped-up Bloody Mary featuring a garnish of bacon, blue cheese and avocado, this drink allows you to have your snack and drink it too, eliminating the need to leave the couch during the premiere … and with 13 new houseguests vying for half a million dollars, we don't want to miss any of the edge-of-your-seat action.
1.5 oz. Vodka
0.5 oz. Fresh lemon and lime juice
0.5 oz. Bloody Mary spice mix
4 oz. Tomato juice
3 Cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp. Crumbled blue cheese
1 Slice Avocado, mashed
1 Trimmed scallion
½ tbsp. Granulated bacon
Core out three tomatoes; stuff two with blue cheese and one with avocado. Set aside to use as garnish. Fill a High Ball glass with ice and add all liquid ingredients. Rim a separate High Ball glass with granulated bacon and pour drink into it. Garnish with tomatoes and scallion with leaves up.
The Grill on Hollywood is located on Hollywood Boulevard between the historic Kodak Theater and Renaissance Hotel
This cocktail has bite — much like the snarky characters typically seen on this hit show.Istockphoto
