Smoky Chipotle Bloody Mary  Sarcastic Cooking

Ok, so this is going to sound bad. I am forewarning you. I am also not faulting you for your judgments. While I was pregnant, I missed having a drink or two.

Most pregnant people won’t actually admit that to themselves, let alone other people. It wasn’t even like I was Jonesing for some booze. It was just that in certain social situations or after a stressful incident I really would have liked to have the luxury of knocking back a glass of wine.

Let me tell you about a few incidents in which I wish I could have had a drink.

The one that sticks out most memorably in my mind is at our very good friends’ wedding in Key West. Yeah, Key West! First off, it was a wedding. Second off, it was in the most humid and tropical place in the continental US and I could not have a fruity, scratch that, even an ice cold adult drink.

Next, our crib was on back order and then it was the paint color not working out and then it was finding out last minute that Andy was breach…All stressful situations which, normally, would have called for a calming glass of wine followed by some sort of Bravo show. But alas, couldn’t do it. I had to settle for the Bravo marathon.

Lastly, going to my family’s fave brunch spot and watching everybody at the table (except for Mike because as you all know, he hates tomatoes) with a giant bloody mary and a lil beer back. I felt like a poor little lemming that got left behind after all his friends nosedived off the cliff. Womp, womp. It also never helps when your brothers rub it in your face how good the drink tastes. Jerks.

Well, look who has the last laugh now, brothers! I made these for brunch week and guess who doesn’t get any? You! Well, if you really wanted one I would share or make you one because I know what it is like to be left out and I would never want to do that to you.

I am working on my mom guilt trip. You think it is working?

Anyway, enjoy my last recipe for brunch week and make sure you enter your butts (and all other extremities) in this super awesome giveaway!

Don’t be sad that it is my last brunch week post. You still have all these other posts to peruse!

    Every one of my prego friends craved alcoholic beverages. Heck, I know I would. This cocktail looks amazing. I love the addition of chipotle. Pinning! Happy first Mother’s Day, Stef!

    It kind of pains me to say that I don’t like bloody marys because they always look so pretty!

    Um no, I don’t think this sounds bad at all. It’s completely honest, and I KNOW I will feel the same way (probably even more so) if I get pregnant. So glad to see somebody else brought bloodys to our brunch! Love your smoky take on it!

    One of my girlfriends had a baby last year, and while she was pregnant she took a perverse pleasure in running up her husband’s bar tab with non-alcoholic beers. If only there was a non-alcoholic substitute for wine! I know when I have a baby (far in the future) that will probably be the number one thing I miss. I’m loving this bloody mary – those canned chipotles are one of my fave ingredients but I always seem to have half a can leftover! This looks like a perfect way to use them up!

    I don’t blame you at all for missing a relaxing cocktail while pregnant! I treasure the moments after a long day where I can sit and sip a glass of wine or the celebratory moments with friends sipping bubbly drinks & I’d be sad, too. Sounds like this Bloody makes up for the ones you missed! Thanks for sharing & happy brunching!
