I feel like this cocktail is really important to know how to make. This Simple Bloody Mary recipe should actually be called “Breakfast and hangover cure in a glass.” When the holidays come around everyone is boozing it up, lots of hangovers at our house anyway. Bloody Marys are some what of a tradition for me when it comes to this time of the year. It’s funny because the first time I had a Bloody Mary I thought it was really gross. I think it’s the kind of drink you like when you get older. Like coffee, or scotch on the rocks, or brussels sprouts. Now I love them in all their spicy tomato-ness glory. So if you have never made one at home, do yourself a favor and prep by getting all the ingredients before you have a big night out. Thank me later.
