The Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary

If you woke up this morning wanting a little “hair of the dog” relief from last night, mixing up a Bloody Mary just might put some pep back in your step! Check out this recipe from the legendary King Cole Bar at the St. Regis hotel in New York.

The Famous King Cole Bar Bloody Mary

1 oz vodka
1 oz tomato juice
1 dash lemon juice
2 dashes salt
2 dashes black pepper
2 dashes cayenne pepper
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
Garnish with lemon wedge & celery

The great thing about this complex cocktail is it allows you to get creative with rim salts and garnishes by combining various spices and herbs for additional flavor. Just mix the ingredients on a large plate, wet the rim of your glass and dip the rim into the spices. Here are a few ideas:

Bacon Salt

12 oz cooked bacon, minced in a food processor
¾ cup of sea salt
1 tsp ground black pepper

Celery Salt

1 tbsp celery salt
1 tbsp kosher salt

Lemon Pepper

2 tbsp lemon pepper

Smoked Paprika Salt

1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp kosher salt
