This is the most famous “hair of the dog” cocktail. That term refers to drinking a shot of what poisoned you the night before so as to make the hangover go away. It comes from the old-school idea of curing yourself from the bite of a rabid dog by placing some of his hair in your wound. Sounds more like a great way to spread bacteria and get a staph infection, but whatever. Anyway, this is a great savory drink that goes well with regular brunch-type meals or anything once you’ve had enough of them.

Bloody Mary Recipe

1 1/4 oz. Vodka
2 1/2 oz. Tomato Juice
dash Worcestershire Sauce
dash Tabasco Sauce
dash Salt and Pepper
Celery Stalk and Orange Slice for garnish

Pour Vodka over ice in a glass. Fill with Tomato Juice. Add a dash or two of Worcestershire Sauce and Tabasco Sauce. (A “dash” is defined as 1/32nd of an ounce-ish. This is just for flavoring so do not go overboard.) Stir and garnish with a Celery Stalk and/or an Orange Slice. For those who enjoy their Bloody Marys extremely spicy, add more Tabasco!
