Bloody Mary in a Bell Pepper Cup

Huzzah! It’s Day 7 which means I’m about a third of the way to making/ photographing/ blogging daily cocktails into a new habit. I think the last time I purposefully habituated myself to a daily task was back in 1st grade. No joke.

In first grade, we were assigned a task of putting on our seatbelts every time we got in the car, and we were all given a chart with some stickers. Of course, stickers are like crack to a first grader, so I was determined to use all mine. Granted, I still could have used them, but I guess the thought never occurred me as a generally law-abiding child.

Every single day for 3 weeks, I put on my seatbelt every single time I got in the car, and at the end of the 3 weeks, I turned in my card filled with stickers and got some sort of crappy prize or whatever. I really can’t remember what happened with those cards, but it was likely stupid.

After those 3 weeks, I put my seatbelt on every.single.time, and just so you know, my track record was pretty spotty until then. However, it really did work, and even today my first impulse when getting into a car is to put on my seatbelt.

I was watching a clip on Hulu or YouTube with an actress on a late night show, and just before standing up from her chair, she checked her invisible seatbelt which was amazingly hilarious if only because I could see myself doing it. Anyway, apparently she was flying around so much, that she got into the habit of unclicking her seatbelt to avoid the launch-and-trapped embarrassment that happens when you forget you have a seatbelt on. Bless her. Whoever she is. Because I absolutely can’t remember.

Back on topic…

Today I made a bell pepper cup and served up a bloody mary which was quite tasty, and it was super fun to eat the cup afterwards.

Cheers and beers!

Recipe:

Slice off the top of a bell pepper, remove the ribs, and wash.

Fill with ice and pour 1½ oz Vodka.

Top with bloody mary mix (or V8) and serve with a straw and napkin.
