Bloody Mary Recipe

Everybody’s Favorite Hangover Cure

The Bloody Mary is a favorite Sunday morning brunch drink.  It’s reputation as a vitamin packed, hair of the dog, meal-in-a-glass has led to some extravagances. In recent years restaurants and bar loading up on the drinkable your meal garnishes. This trend started with a little charcuterie or a strip of bacon garnish. Instagram has upped the ante and now you’ll find Bloody Marys garnished with everything from sliders to whole roast game hens.

Our take is a little more restrained. A salt rim, a slice of lime, and some pickled asparagus work just fine. If you want to get a little fancier, float a spoonful of pico de gallo salsa on top. The addition brings a pop of flavor and a little extra color to the drink.
