Bloody Mary, Bittersweet Style


‘As a matter of fact, I am as good as I look.’

Why mess around with measurements? In a tumbler, mix a smidgen of horseradish, a few dashes of Tabasco, a pinch of pepper, and several squirts of fresh lemon juice. Fill the glass a few fingers high with tomato juice. Now ice. Now vodka. (Do what you will. No one is looking.) Stir well and garnish with something fresh and crunchy. Now put your feet up, take a sip, and say, ‘Aaaaah, now that’s bloody good.’
