So you started to drink AFTER "Happy Hour"? Besides, any hour I'm drinking IS "Happy Hour". But I'm afraid we can't be friends anymore...our liquor boxes don't have any gin in them. Practically everything else, but no gin. Then again, if I knew you were coming I would buy you a gin.

Yes, it allowed me to eat my dinner before a cocktail and only have ONE drink...first one I've had in about two years. So don't buy a bottle for me, it will just sit there. I'm not much of a drinker, reminds me...I need to walk over and get the car so I can get to work. Good thing it's only 8 blocks away.

I love me a bloody Caesar, but don't usually drink them because Clamato has a log of MSG. I drink them when they are made with store brand tomato-clam juice that doesn't have MSG.

I thought I would check to see if Clamato still has lots of MSG and found this in a Wikipedia article:

"Clamato is used primarily as a mix for alcoholic beverages (an estimated 60% of sales in the US in 2008[4]), and it is popular for this in both Canada and Mexico, but curiously much less so in the United States (outside of Canadian-American and Mexican-American communities)."

Bloody Caesar is quite a common drink up here in Canada, so I didn't get that a lot of the Yanks wouldn't know what you meant.

Another one of those funny, little cultural differences.

Red Lobster used to make a Ship Wreck Mary with vodka, tomato juice, horseradish and shrimp buzzed in the blender, they were very nice in the summer!

That sounds good!

Being Canadian-American, we drank our share of Caesars. Wish they made a low sodium version of Clamato, like they did with V8. Or maybe they did.

That does sound tasty. I tend to prefer bloody Marias to bloody Marys. It's the same thing, but with tequila instead of vodka. I like tasting the booze.

You won't get a low-sodium Clamato because it contains MSG (which V8 doesn't). That is why I could never drink Clamato as I am highly sensitive to MSG. I am not sure why it is used, but is in canned clam chowder as well.
