September is here and in the Deep South, that means football!  Since we all know tailgating can start pretty early, next time try serving a Red Eye instead of a Bloody Mary.

Here’s what you will need: 

Celery Salt
Pale Lager
Bloody Mary Mix
Wedge of Lime
Celery Stick

Rim a tall glass with celery salt, carefully pour in a pale lager, such as a Rolling Rock, and top with 2 ounces of your favorite Bloody Mary mix (I like Zing Zang).  Squeeze in a lime wedge and stir with a celery stick.

Serve with your favorite cheese straws while the grill is firing up.
