The first time I ever had a Bloody Mary was the day after my 21st birthday, when a friend took me out to dinner to celebrate and told me I should order one with my meal! It certainly wasn’t my last time enjoying one, and now I have an easy recipe for this classic drink to share thanks to Powell & Mahoney, just in time for creepy Halloween celebrations:
Perfect Bloody Mary
Recipe by Tad Carducci, courtesy Powell & Mahoney
In a martini shaker, mix 4 oz P&M Bloody Mary and 1 ½ oz vodka. Gently shake and strain into a pint glass packed with ice. Garnish with a celery stalk, slice of lemon, pickled long beans, olives, salami, grilled shrimp or a slice of crispy bacon.
