The Best Bloody Mary
Nothing says brunch and/or the morning after like the Bloody Mary. When it’s really needed even a mediocre Bloody Mary is good but a great Bloody Mary sticks in your memory for years.
The Bloody Mary is all about the mix. Use a substandard mix and you’ll have a rather forgettable cocktail despite the use of even the best Vodka. Speaking of Vodka… BevX recommends using a quality, and sensibly priced Vodka. There is no better way to spot a status seeking fool than to witness someone at the bar ordering a Bloody Mary with the addition of the posh, ultra-premium Vodka of the moment.
2 oz. Vodka
BevX Best Bloody Mary Mix -
Celery & citrus slice for garnish
Salt, celery seed, and black pepper for glass rim
Serve the Bloody Mary all year long but if you have one after the sun goes down please move to another table.
Rim a tall highball glass with salt, celery seed, and black pepper by first wetting the glass with a lime wedge. Fill the glass with ice and then add the Vodka followed by the mix. Add the garnish and enjoy.
Add your own favorite garnish – let the imagination go wild.
