2. Bloody Mary
When I was younger, the mere mention of the words “bloody Mary” gave me the creeps.
As a grown-up, however, it totally perks me up when I hear those words because it’s the name of one of my favorite classic cocktails!
Refreshing, spicy and savory, it’s said to alleviate the symptoms of even the worst hangover the morning after, but tastes great anytime!
2 ounces Pepper Infused Vodka
1/2 Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
6-8 Dashes Worcestershire Sauce
4-6 Dashes Tabasco Sauce
2-3 Dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
3 Dashes Celery Salt
2 Dashes White Pepper
2 Dashes Garlic Powder
2 Dashes Onion Powder
Coarse salt for rimming
**Celery stalk is standard.
Try a dill pickle spear, jalapeño stuff olives on a skewer or shrimp cocktail for something off the beaten track.
**Rim a Collins glass with salt.
Fill glass half full with ice.
Season ice with sauces, bitters, powders, peppers and salts.
Pour in vodka.
Top off with Clamato Juice leaving a half inch at the rim of the glass.
Squeeze in lime and drop into glass.
