  1. Perfect timing. We went to the bay front to a outdoor tiki bar/grill for breakfast and my husband asked if we had some bloody mary mix at home (on Sundays we can't order before noon in a restaurant). I didn't have the mix but did have some V8, and so I was going to look up some BM recipes. Thanks! Have fun in New Orleans.
