Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary cocktail is made from vodka and tomato juice blended together with some spices and condiments. The unusual addition of tobasco and worchestershire sauce gives it an unusual flavour profile.

The Bloody Mary cocktail also has a reputation as being a good cocktail for those with a hangover, although unfortunately despite the health benefits of the tomato juice, the inclusion of the alcohol is the most likely rationale for any disguising of a hangover.


  1. Pour several ice cubes into a long glass and pour over the vodka. 
  2. Add the lemon juice, worcestershire sauce and tabasco sauce. 
  3. Top up the glass with tomato juice, and stir it all together.
  4. Then season to taste with salt and pepper
  5. Finally garnish with the olive and celery if desired.  
The name "Bloody Mary" is associated with numerous historical figures but particularly Queen Mary I of England.
