Lockdown brunch calls for Bloody Marys — this generous recipe crafts the ultimate savoury drop

A good Bloody Mary can be the difference between surviving a hangover and promising you’ll never drink again. Even though, presumably, most of us are not currently afflicted with too many regular hangovers being at home, we still enjoy a cheeky weekend Bloody Mary in all its savoury, spicy glory. See the recipe below.

Bloody Mary Recipe
Serves 6

2 litres of tomato juice, chilled
2 Tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 Tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
2 tsp celery salt
Dash of salt
Dash of pepper
4 dashes of Tabasco (or to taste)
15ml Fire Tonic
1 ½ cups vodka

1. Combine all ingredients except vodka, ice and celery sticks in a large jug. Adjust the mix to taste depending on how salty, spicy, or citrus-y you like it.
2. Add a tablespoon of vodka to stabilise the mix while chilling. Just before serving, add the rest of the vodka.
3. Serve over lots of ice and garnish each glass with a celery stick.
