Best Bloody Mary Mixes

If you're someone who loves to #brunchsohard, you know about the magical, mystical powers of Bloody Marys.  Half cocktail, half meal in a glass, Bloody Marys have the power to cure hangovers, serve as a meal stand-in, and allow you the ability to drink at 10am without getting disapproving stares from various loved ones.

But when it comes to drinking (and creating!) a good Bloody Mary, it's all about the mix.  Some too thin and watery, some so thick all the pepper and horseradish gets caught in the straw and makes it impossible to drink—if you're on the hunt for a great Bloody Mary, it really comes down to the type of mix being used.  It's the reason why no two Bloody Marys are the same.

So, we've rounded up the very best Bloody Mary mixes so you can craft your own perfect Bloody Mary at home. And while Mrs. T's and V8 can work in a pinch, we're going a bit higher brow and hipster with our mix choices. After all, what's more hipster than brunch?  Nothing (well, except maybe old timey moustaches). Read it on Parade.

In-Law Dinner Candle

There are a million fancy scented candles on the market, but "ocean breeze" or "campfire smoke" or "mountain lake" aren't really the scents that fit your life.  The scents that fit your life are more like "at work and hating life" or "sad dive bar" or "dinner with your in-laws."  Why not call a spade a spade?  

Stock your home with candles that make more sense for you, like this In-Law Dinner Candle ($20, Whiskey River Soap Co.) that smells like unseasoned pot roast and a heaping size of tension under the surface. Mmmmmmm smells like Sunday.

10 Junk Drawer Organizers 

Everyone has a junk drawer or three. You know what we speak of — that drawer filled with business cards, rubber bands, and chaos.  Just because you've got a drawer filled with random things doesn't mean it needs to be a disaster zone. Check out these in-drawer organizers that will help get your junk drawer in order, so you can actually find the super glue (or the camera charger, or the twine) when you need it the next time around. Read it on The Kitchn

Saent Button

You constantly read a billion articles about how you can a.) be more productive, b.) make the most of the time you have, and c.) develop a better work/life balance.  But when it comes down to it, there are just too many distractions.  You sit down at your desk and work with a big mug of coffee and think, "I am totally going to be focused and finally get this thing done."  

But then your fingers mindlessly type Facebook.com or Twitter.com into your browser.  Then you lose 15 minutes looking at pictures from somebody-you-don't-even-know's baby shower.  Or, you get a notification that someone emailed your personal Gmail and you go look at that, because that's more fun than work email.  This is how you end up never feeling like you've gotten anything accomplished, so you seek out productivity articles and feel like shit about yourself, wash and repeat to infinity and beyond.  

There's a better way.  With the Saent Button ($59), you have a physical button you can place on your desk that you can hit whenever you want to have an uninterrupted work session.  You set up whatever "banned" sites or applications you want to stop yourself from using, and set how long they'll be blocked for.  You can have intensive, power work sessions throughout the day and end up feeling more and more accomplished. Look at you!  You're a bona fide responsibility champion.
