This is my recipe for how to mix a classic Bloody Mary cocktail. The Blood Mary cocktail might not be to everyone's liking but it really is a true classic of the cocktail world and most definitely worth trying at least once.
The Bloody Mary Cocktail is also rumoured make a very effective hang over cure.
For this recipe I personally use Absolut vodka, but please feel free to use your favourite vodka if you prefer.
You will need a cocktail shaker and strainer for this recipe, if you haven’t got either of these you should be able to pick them up at you local supermarket pretty cheap. A tea strainer will work great as a cocktail strainer if you have one.
1½ oz of Absolut Vodka

1 drop of concentrated lemon juice
½ teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
2 drops of Tabasco sauce
Some freshly ground pepper to taste
In the cocktail shaker add all the ingredients along with some ice and shake well. Once shaken strain into a highball over ice cubes.
