Steve-O’s Day Off . . .

SO TODAY IS SUNDAY, THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW WEEK, OR THE END OF THE OLD WEEK, DEPENDING ON HOW YA LOOK AT IT.  EITHER WAY YOU VIEW, IT WAS MY DAY OFF.  I STARTED OFF MY MORNING TODAY LIKE MOST OTHER, A NICE CUP OF COFFEE FOLLOWED BY A VISIT TO MY GYM.  YES I AM THE OWNER AND PROPRIETOR OF MY VERY OWN WORKOUT FACILITY.  WOW.  AFTER ABOUT AN HOUR DOWN THERE THE SUN WAS STARTING TO COME UP SO I WENT OUTSIDE AND COMPLETED SOME SMALL BUT NEEDED YARD TASK.  WOW.  BRILLIANT.  WHAT FUN.  SO THEN IT’S TIME TO WAKE THE LOVELY WIFE AND GET OUR DAY STARTED.  WE HIT THE CITY MARKET, AN ANTIQUE MALL, AND TWO VINTAGE FLEA MARKETS.  WE ARE BOTH BIG INTO RECYCLING, REPURPOSING AND A LOT OF OTHER RE’S.  WE SCORED A FEW REALLY COOL FINDS ON THIS TRIP SO THAT WAS JUST ABOUT ALL THE REASON I NEED TO MAKE A CELEBRATORY LIBATION.  I CAME ACROSS THIS BEAUTY IN MEXICO.  THERE WERE MANY VARIATIONS OF THIS BAD BOY BUT THIS IS THE ONE I ENJOY MOST.  DEPENDING ON WHO YOU ASK THIS MAY BE CALLED A “CHAVELA”, A “CHABELA”, OR AN “OJO ROJOS”.  NOW I SHOULD TELL YOU THAT “OJO ROJOS” TRANSLATES TO “RED EYES” IN ESPANOL, SO I’M SURE YOU CAN FIGURE OUT HOW THIS COCKTAIL CAME ABOUT. OJO ROJOS

WHAT YOU NEED IS : SOME ICE CUBES, A FROZEN BEER GLASS, A GOOD BEER (NOTE MY WEAPON IN THE PICTURE – – IT’S A GREAT ONE), SOME CLAMATO JUICE OR SPICY V-8 OR TOMATO JUICE, SOME CHOLULA HOT SAUCE OR THAT OF YOUR CHOICE, SOME WORCESTERSHIRE, AND THE JUICE FROM 1 FRESH LIME.  THIS IS PRETTY MUCH A SOUTH OF THE BORDER VERSION OF A BLOODY MARY, REPLACING THE VODKA WITH BEER.  KEEP THE RATIO OF BEER TO JUICE ABOUT 3 TO 1.  START BY PUTTING SOME TOMATO/CLAMATO JUICE IN YOUR GLASS OVER THE ICE CUBES.  ADD A FEW DROPS OF THE WORCESTERSHIRE, THE HOT SAUCE, THE LIME JUICE AND THE BEER.  STIR IT UP AND ENJOY.
