Summer means Gazpacho soup for dinner and Gazpacho means V8 juice. And when you have a container of V8 in the fridge it’s the most natural thing in the world to start thinking about Bloody Marys. The definitive morning cocktail.
- 2 oz. vodka
- 6 oz. tomato juice or V8
- 2 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 dash Sriracha Sauce
Stir all together in an iced highball glass. Sprinkle celery salt on top. Garnish with celery.
You’ll notice this recipe has one small alteration from the traditional recipe: Sriracha. We don’t keep, or use, Tabasco sauce in this house. I don’t know if there is anything I can say about the Bloody Mary that hasn’t been said before by a better writer. Spicy, fruity, and with lots of umami it’s like a meal in itself. Also, makes for a pretty good pick me up first thing in the morning on a weekend…
