Bloody Mary Cocktail Recipe

Bloody Mary is a special favourite. I do like tomato juice with a bit of a spiritual kick of vodka, Tabasco and Worcestershire Sauce. I would drink this slowly with a stick of celery to swirl this blood-red concoction round and round.

Did you know?

Bloody Mary was named after Mary Tudor (1516-1558), daughter of Henry VIII with Katherine of Aragon.

Mary was the last Catholic Monarch.  During her reign, she tried to restore Catholicism as the official state religion.  She was intolerant of any form of criticism what she burned hundreds at the stake and hanged many Prostestants.

Her tyranny earned her the  sobriquet as ‘Bloody Mary’

Anyways, here is the recipe.
