Many of my posts will have to do with experiences or people in my past.  With that in mind, today’s story is about a dear friend Steven McCance and his outstanding Bloody Mary recipe.

I love Notre Dame.  We grew up about 1.5 miles from campus and living in South Bend requires one to be a rabid fan of the Fighting Irish.  I could be called a fan, but in many cases I have been considered much worse than a fan (have I mentioned they are 7 – 0 this year, no…  well they are.  I expect they will be 8 – 0 after this weekend against Oklahoma!)

When first married, Mrs. Spicy would not be in the same house as me when watching a Notre Dame game.   I tend to not react when they do something well (they should do well on every play right???) Yet when they mess up, I can be a bit emotional.

All the swear words, projecting remotes, kicking the dog (not really), you get the point.

Basically, I am a bad fan.

Over the years, I have tried to be better, but to no avail.  I am too bought in to the idea that Notre Dame SHOULD win every game, every year.  And if they don’t, well…  all the swears, remotes, dogs, kids away from daddy, etc.  Quit judging me!

Anyways, one of my favorite Notre Dame memories is with a very close family friend Steven McCance.  Steve was a Scottish chemist that received his PHD from Notre Dame and worked for a well-known pharmaceutical company, developing methods to cure blood diseases – basically he was wicked smart and worked on stuff most of us will never understand.

He and I, on many occasions, enjoyed exquisite tailgating fare whilst waiting for another Notre Dame beat-down against another lowly opponent (i.e. Miami, Southern Cal, Michigan, etc.)  He was actually a fantastic cook and mixologist, taking his chemist roots to create delightful concoctions.

Steven had an impeccable palate for good wine and made the best damn bloody mary cocktail ever – which we partook of every tailgating session.

This post is dedicated to Steven – who recently passed from brain cancer.

He was an amazing man, has a wonderful family and will always be an inspiration to me.  As you enjoy this “Asian spin” on his perfect bloody mary recipe, please think of all the people who have been affected by this terrible disease – both in a positive and negative way.

When you do, send a quick buck or two to help fight the battle – then go out and get the ingredients to this spin on a classic and get a little tipsy Scottish style…  for Steven!

    Great post Dan! Stephen was beyond an amazing man and friend. Needless to say his Bloody Mary’s were right up there with him. He’s the whole reason I started drinking Bloody Mary’s. After tasting his I quickly got over my hatred for tomatoe juice.

    *Cheers Stephen*

    You sound like my husband and his beloved Redskins. He used to take it so hard when they lost. He’s better about it now!
