A perfect Bloody Mary is one of the best things about the the morning after a night drinking- or not drinking.
They are great for a Sunday Brunch in a tall jug allowing guests to refill as much as their little hearts desire. Spicy and fresh with a stick of crunchy celery to stir and eat.
Even without the hair of the dog- a Virgin Mary is great to drink on a plane.
Perfect Bloody Mary
Tomato juice- a good quality tomato juice is best, one that is rich and flavourful and not too thin.
A dash or two of Worcestershire sauce- Lea & Perrins is best
Two shakes of Tabasco sauce- or your favorite spicy sauce- we use Kaitaia Fire
1.2 tsp Horseradish sauce
Salt and fresh Pepper
Ice- lots of ice!
Put Worcestershire, Tabasco, Horseradish, Vodka and Ice in a glass- stir to mix well.
Top with Tomato juice, Salt and Pepper.
Stir, taste, adjust seasoning- if not spicy enough add more.
Garnish with a stick of crunchy celery.
