The History of the Bloody Mary
Often seen as “the morning after” cocktail to get you going after a big night out, don’t let this stereotype demean the name of the Bloody Mary, it’s a spectacular cocktail. Equally good as a virgin version (depending on the time of day), this is a cocktail which will never get old.
Apparently named after Mary Tudor (it was believed to be her favourite drink), one of the key reasons this cocktail is so popular is that it’s easy to amend to suit many different taste buds.
You can take your spice, add more Tabasco sauce to make hotter. Equally, if you can’t handle the heat, request less. The recipe below is mild, so adapt to suit you.
You like it with plenty of bitterness, simply add more lemon juice.
The look for the cocktail, add more garnishes with anything you want.
Here at The Cocktail Service, we garnish with bacon, sea salt, pepper and celery, but we have even served with sausages and scrambled egg. Depending on when you are drinking your Bloody Mary, you can go to town on the garnish. You will see so many different garnishes on Instagram, so search on there to get some inspiration.
