Nothing says Happy New Year like a refreshing Bloody Mary on New Year’s morning. If you just happen to wake up with a slight headache, this may help.
An excellent tomato juice is key to a good Bloody Mary, try to find a good quality juice in the Italian section of your local grocer and see if they have a quality brand.
We prefer Tito’s vodka but there are many other gluten free vodkas made from potato, corn, and grapes.
You can adjust the hot sauce and horseradish to your taste, adding more or less depending on the amount of heat you like. I recommend at least a little horseradish for the flavor that it adds to the drink.
It is amazing what people garnish their drinks with. I have seen everything under the sun stuffed onto the rim of the glass for a garnish. I love a lot of garnishes and try to use as many as possible. We set up a Bloody Mary bar every year at our annual fishing derby.
Here are some of the garnishes we put out:
- string cheese
- pickled asparagus
- dilly beans
- pearl onions
- grape tomatoes
This recipe is great with or without the vodka. Usually, I enjoy my drink without alcohol. Delicious with or without alcohol or garnishes, make yours to be uniquely your own.
Of course, please always drink responsibly and please, please, please never drink and drive!
