Doc Thompson and Kris Cruz are legitimately worried about cocktails this morning. Kris said he never really cared about climate change until he read a report that claimed the impact of climate change could affect his morning routine.
According to Grub Street, the impact of climate change will affect all of the ingredients that make up a Bloody Mary. The report depicts a world without wine, avocados, coffee, bananas, and chocolate, and attributes their potential demise to a warming planet.
“The entire global food system is a nightmare on the horizon," said Ed Carr, director of Clark University's international development, community, and environment department.
The Bloody Mary cocktail is said to be one of the most complex cocktails because of all its components.
"How else are you going to drink at breakfast?" Doc said. "Hold it. I know what you're doing. You're saying all of those reports of complete extinction have been overblown in the past, right? But as it turns out, does it matter? Because those smaller adjustments are going to affect our food chain."
If the researchers are right, brace yourselves: Bloody Marys everywhere just won't be the same.
