Happy Hour: A Classic Bloody Mary

bloody mary recipe
After I posted my ‘Bloody Mary mixtape‘ last month a few of my friends asked me which was my favorite Bloody Mary recipe. Everyone has their own favorite way of making bloody marys; some like them spicy, some like them garnished with all sorts of vegetables to give the impression that they are being somewhat healthy (ps. you’re not fooling anyone peeps) and others like them so strong that one sip is guaranteed to put them in an induced coma.

I personally like to stick to a simple classic mix. Mainly because I’m generally too hangover at the time to think about making any sort of elaborate drink. Besides, why mess with a good thing? This is already a winner.
