Welcome to full swing Hatch chile season, got fire? This weekend we had blazed up bunch of beautiful chiles from Melissa’s Produce and had a moment of clarity; Hatch Bloody Marys!! Put that pepper in a glass all it’s own.

Use that pepper in the cocktail that drinks like a meal. The recipe came fast –

Hurl all ingredients into blender with love. Blend to a nice consistency and serve with favorite spirit; vodka, tequila, gin, The Ghost Of Christmas Past. Serve over ice and garnish with your favorite bloody garni. Trends include, lemon, lime, pickled green beans, shrimp cocktails, olives, stuffed olives, hatch chiles, the kitchen sink, rosemary sprigs, cucumbers, celery, bacon, an odd bedroom slipper, caper berries, joy, baby carrots, marinated mushroom. Be creative! Be daring! Be peppery! B, is for Bloody Mary.

Karma Diem, babies.

How exciting to be celebrating our first National Tequila Day with our very good friends at KARMA Tequila!!! We are extremely lucky to have such nice people in creative places. Sponsorship by Kotex while lovely would not be as fun in the Swag Department, you know what we’re saying here?

And it’s equally as wonderful to announce our FIRST EPISODE FROM SEASON 2 is finished and will air this week. Walk the dog, cop a squat, pour the Karma and good things will follow. The very cool, very fun JESSE BRUNE came by to share some sweets and deets. Jesse is a life transformation mastermind; skilled chef, personal trainer and life coach. Jesse is the real deal and more on him soon, we’re sweet on him. Stay tuned and come hungry.

Oh, and just a quick note here. Today also happens to be our dear Marie Pettit’s birthday!! We know, so much Joy in one post today. Wildly exciting!! Marie is our AD, PA, Muse and Production Manager for DIO! She is the fiber in our reader’s digestion, the cream in our coffee. Plus she has the director Chris Gregson’s ear. She got the rest too, by marrying the man. We have a marvelous team and choose to celebrate every step of the way. Much JOY and love to Marie!
