Classic Bloody Mary

Ah the universal hangover cure - the healthiest way to implement 'hair-of-the-dog' and get some life affirming nutrients in the process. But bloody mary isn't just good for after, she's good for the night before too...

The ingredients

The drink:

-90 ml tomato juice
-45 ml vodka (it's worth using the best you can get)
-3 drops Worcestershire sauce
-3 drops Tobasco sauce (add more for that extra kick)
-Pitch of salt
-Pinch of black pepper
-Few drops fresh lemon juice
-Few drops fresh lime juice


-Coarse salt (sea salt flakes are recommended)
-Celery stick
-Wedge of lime (or lemon)

The method

Whenever I think of Bloody Marys I always picture rich middle-aged women drinking it at a country club Sunday brunchen.

This is just a simple Bloody Mary recipe without any twists of my own. I just thought I'd share with those who haven't had the opportunity mix one up themselves.

   1.      In a shaker filled with a couple cubes of ice, combine all ingredients and shake well.
   2.      Slice a wedge of lime (or lemon) and run it along the rim of your serving glass to wet it.
   3.      Dip the rim of the glass in a plate of coarse salt, making sure the wetted part of the rim is completely covered.
   4.      Drain mixture without ice into glass, garnish with celery and wedge of lime.
   5.      Serve immediately~

You don't have to be a rich middle-aged women belonging to a country club to enjoy this drink. Heck, I drink it on my livingroom couch watching tv on a sunday afternoon...

    I've had a few Bloody Marys on my trips overseas. Although they don't have all the ingredients at hand on the plane (salt, lemon juice, etc), they don't do too bad a job. All it takes is one heavy handed flight attendant though and you get a very spicy helping of tobasco. I have to say, too much can ruin it.

      Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation. icloud login onlinesbi bob net banking The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you.
