"Thank you, Shelley, for putting your love and passion into this book. It is clear to me, based on the professional layout, quality of pictures, and exhausting research, that you had a clear vision from the beginning and more than accomplished it! A book like this verifies that not only are bloody marys here to stay, but in fact, this entire arena is on the rise!" - Stephen P. Murphy, CEO, The Murph's Famous Bloody Mary Mix

"Informative, interesting, well-written, with great pictures, tips and pointers, The Drunken Tomato book is a must have for not only Cali folk, but for anyone looking for some Nightshade inspiration." - David Cykiert, Founder,

"Shelley is hands down the bloody mary queen of LA." -

"[T]his book is put together so beautifully and the photos are so gorgeous...that it could just as easily serve as a coffee table book and/or conversation piece." -

"Sometimes someone is their drink.  Sometimes they are the spicy, salty, unignorable champion of getting up and on that is a bloody mary.  Sometimes they wrote the book." - Seeing Shadow
