Mixology Monday Announcement

MxMo LXXII: Drink Your Vegetables

Monday, April 22 will be the 72nd Mixology Monday, and I will be your host here at Fogged In Lounge. Our theme: Drink Your Vegetables. Want to get more vegetables but you’re always eating on the run? Maybe you hate vegetables but feel you should get more of them? Well then, how about a vegetable cocktail? No, not that nice little glass of red stuff Grandma put at each place setting—we’re talking something with a kick in it. You can definitely start with the little glass of red stuff and expand it to a Red Snapper-style drink like a Bloody Mary. Or how about a cucumber-scented cooler like a Pimm’s Cup, or maybe a cocktail featuring a vegetable-based ingredient like Cardamaro or celery bitters? Maybe you’ve been wondering if you can get more mileage out of that juice extractor before consigning it to the garage sale. However you get them in that glass, be prepared for the most fun with vegetables ever. Here‘s what to do.

  1. Find a drink or create one featuring one or more vegetable-based ingredients in some form. Make the drink, and post a photo, the recipe, and your charming bar talk about the thing on your blog, Tumblr, or eGullet’s Spirits and Cocktails forum. If you don’t have any other way of posting, you can also email it to me at foggedinlounge (at) gmail (dot) com.

  2. Include in your post the MxMo logo and a link back to both the Mixology Monday and Fogged In Lounge sites. Once I post the roundup of all submissions, a link to that post as well would be grand.

  3. Let me know about your awesome submission before 11:59pm PDT on Monday, April 22 by posting a link to your post in the comment section on this post or by shooting me an email at foggedinlounge (at) gmail (dot) com.

Have fun and remember: Don’t just vegetate—drink your vegetables.

    Thanks for hosting Rowen! This is an offbeat entry to be sure and I don't mean to mock the theme in the least - I think the drink turned out well and this month's theme was a great inspiration. Cheers!
