The Best Bloody Mary

The bloody mary really has a lot going for it- vitamin A, vitamin C, it goes beautifully with almost any food and is a completely acceptable alcoholic beverage to drink before noon. The challenge of the bloody mary though is that most store bought mixes taste like plastic. Not this one. If vodka had a rendezvous in the juice aisle at Whole Foods, this would be their love child. Simple, satisfying and refreshing- the perfect way to start or end the day. Prepare to enjoy brunch (actual food at brunch is optional).

The Players:

  • Absolut Peppar (or your favorite vodka)
  • 365 Organic Vital Veggie Juice (or your preferred tomato based vegetable juice)
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Crushed ice
  • Celery for garnish (optional)
The Game:
  • Fill glass halfway with crushed ice. Pour a three count shot of vodka (I prefer a slow count for a stronger beverage; feel free to add as many Mississippis in your count as you like). Fill the rest of the glass (based on a 16 oz. glass) with vegetable juice, leaving about half an inch at the top for garnish. Add a pinch of worcestershire sauce, stir and top with old bay to taste. Garnish with celery, if using. Pretend you are on vacation. Cheers... 

The rendezvous. This is how rumors get started.

So happy that it is happy hour. The joy of the bloody mary is that it is always happy hour.

Almost too pretty to drink. Almost.
