Blood Mary with Beer Back

I like to go to the Des Moines Yacht Club for lunch on Saturdays. In case you are wondering, no Des Moines doesn't have an ocean, or even a big lake, but it has a Yacht Club and that is good enough for me.

I like making my own drinks, but I also like it when others make them for me. Especially when they get it right like the folks at the Yacht Club. Notice they gave me three olives and a pickle. And you can't see it because I couldn't wait and took a bite, but there's celery in there too--crunchy green celery.

The full bottle of Miller High Life as a beer back was my idea. It's not even 2:00 and I've had my full allotment of vegetables for the day. 

Become a fan of the Des Moines Yacht Club on Facebook.


  1. Now that is my kind of vegetable eating... Almost makes drinking virtious and healthy

  2. Are you sure you don't need a Twitter ID to help share this goodness with all of the world?

    This is my favorite kind of Mary. Inthe South, they look at you like you just lost your godforesakin' mind if you ask about the pickle. Out in WDM, I hear talk of pickled green beans. I think the Yacht Club does it exactly how any sane drinker would. Adding (only) High Life or Miller Lite as you drink down the thick tomato/vodka nectar is the way I like to ride.

    *I told you!

  3. Found your site on Pinterest. I have a friend whose son freezes pickle juice and makes popsicles...can you say yuck? But then I got to thinking...this would be awesome as ice cubes for a Bloody Mary!!
