Still hungover from New Year's Eve but not quite ready to stop drinking just yet? We have the perfect hangover antidote/hair of the dog: the bloody mary.
Yesterday was not only the first day of 2015 it was also National Bloody Mary Day, which makes sense considering most people woke up with some level of alcohol-induced headache and regret. Even so, the classic libation is a stronghold year-round, so having a couple of recipes up your sleeve to wash down that pesky hangover never hurts. If making a bloody is too much to bear when you can't even think, you can always head to Michael's Genuine for the kimchi bloody with Florida rock shrimp.
- 1 1/2 oz. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
- 2 dashes hot sauce
- 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
- 1 heavy-handed dash of steak seasoning spices
- 1 teaspoon of wet minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon of spicy bean or pickle juice
- Fill with plain tomato juice
Pour it all in a pint glass, squeeze in some lemon and lime wedges. Add ice and shake. Garnish with whatever you want. We like bacon!
