I long have dreamed of finding the perfect strong-aroma baijiu Bloody Mary. This is curious for two reasons: 1. Almost nobody tries to make them. 2. I never order/am not a huge fan of the Bloody Mary.

So where does this longing originate? In my peculiar combination of passions as a Kansas City-native and devotee of strong-aroma baijiu. In the earliest days of seeking non-Chinese flavor pairings for baijiu, I hit upon the delightful if unorthodox strong-aroma shot with a Gates barbecue sauce back. Ever since I’ve been chasing that smoky-sweet fruity-funk, believing that a Bloody Mary is the right vector with which to infect the broader populace with my curious mania.

So I welcome this inspired entry from the Doctor of Alcohol, and leave the gauntlet on the table for any other worthy challengers.
