Chicago was basically one huge puddle of crotch sweat yesterday, and what's better on a hot summer Friday than a nice cool glass of beef? That's right! MOST things! So why not try making your own "bullshot" tonight? Smirnoff would appreciate it if you used Smirnoff to make it.
not the first time we've reported on meat-themed drinks. Does anybody drink these things any more? I feel like it's mostly an English thing, but then I don't really go in for the hard likker. A glass of beer or wine does me just fine, thanks. So, maybe somebody can wake me up to the vivacious underground beef cocktail club scene in the comments?
According to Wikipedia, a bullshot is a variant of the bloody mary, basically substituting beef boullion for tomato juice. Why does this sound gross to me? I willingly eat beefy soups, which is pretty much liquefied cow. Is it okay to drink a cow hot and not cold? Of course it is, but I can't tell you why. Go find an Englishman with a glass of Bovril in his hand and ask him.
I'm not sure if I get the joke in this picture. They went to some trouble to make the cow mask roll his eyes like the drink is stupid or something. Is he annoyed with the flower in his "hair"? Does the cow mask not want to drink the drink made from himself? Quite possibly, they saw an opportunity for a striking image and went with it.
Bullshot recipe: Combine vodka and beef boullion in a glass. Add salt and pepper and drink. Do not make a weird face.
Here's the scene from Ren & Stimpy where they serve their "little brother", Kowalski, a glass of meat, skillfully recorded off a television with a handheld camera.
