Nothing beats a stiff drink at the end of a LONG week! Here’s our version of a classic Bloody Mary which includes a mason jar rimmed with salt and our very own Olivia’s Croutons. If that wasn’t enough, we also topped off the spicy cocktail with a few more croutons because part of the fun of drinking a Bloody Mary is the snacking!
What you will need:
1 LONG work week (sigh..yeah we got that!)
2 Cups Tomato Juice
4 TBSP Lemon Juice
2 TBSP Lime Juice
1 cup Vodka
Dash of hot sauce…keep dashing depending on how long your week was…
1 TBSP Horseradish
3 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp celery salt
1 tsp crack black pepper
1 cup ice plus more for shaker
For the garnish:
1 stick of celery
1 sprig of rosemary
1 cup of croutons ( crush or blend 3/4 cup of croutons, set aside remaining 1/4 cup)
Rim glass with olive oil (this helps the salt and crushed croutons stick to the glass better than water) Tip the glass upside down and push / twist into a shallow bowl or plate of crushed croutons and salt. Fill glass with ice, stick of celery, and rosemary sprig. Combine all drink ingredients in shaker. Shake it. Shake it like a Polaroid picture…you know what to do. Pour into prepared glass .
Saving the best for last..top with a small handful of Olivia’s Croutons (we used butter garlic).
Cheers! Eat, drink, and be merry.
