My Saturdays in the summer when I am in Seattle usually involve the farmers market. The farmers market is walking distance from my house and we usually eat lunch from one of the vendors. Shopping at the farmers markets is one one my family's favorite activity it the summer. My daughter loves picking out a fresh pastry of some sort, I enjoy the fresh fruit stands and my husband likes that we get out of the house as a family with out being able to play on electronics. This particular Saturday in Seattle was hot.. extremely hot where the only thing to cool us off was an afternoon cocktail.

We landed at Lot 3 and this was the perfect destination for a afternoon cocktail. I ordered a titos vodka with blueberry + lavendar housemade shrub. What whatever that giant afternoon cocktail was it was the perfect thing for me to order. My husband on the other hand got a bloody mary and it was the most fashionable presentation of a bloody mary cocktail I had ever seen. Lot 3 calls it the Smoking Pig Bloody Mary which includes: Jalapeño-bacon infused vodka, applewood smoked bacon, house mix, smoked bacon salt. My husband called it delicious and meat in a cup.

From what I can remember in my cocktailing days is the key to great bloody mary is fresh bloody mary mix (which includes) Worcestershire sauce. I found this bloody mary recipe on HonestlyYum.com, and that heirloom tomatoes were used its got to be yummy.
