Author Notes: A Red Draw is tomato juice or Bloody Mary mix and beer and is also called a Bloody Beer or Red Beer. I'm not sure if it's a Texas thing or not, but there is a drive in restaurant in Wichita Falls, Texas that still brings them to your car in a pitcher. We just happened to be in Wichita Falls over the weekend and we visited the Pioneer Restaurant #2 (one of a few left of a string of Pioneer restaurants) then went to a friend's house and concocted our own. Tasty. - nannydeb —nannydeb
Food52 Review: Bloody Mary meets Michelada in nannydeb's mellow, refreshing Texan beer cocktail. The gentle spicing plays nicely with the beer without overwhelming it, so be sure to pick a lager you like. One (or a few) of these would go down easy on a parched summer day. - kristen miglore —Kristen Miglore
