Toasting 2009

On New Year’s Day, I made Blood Mary’s for the first time in my life. My SF buddies thought they were tasty, especially after a night of heavy food, drinks and more drinks.

Toasting 2009 with Bloody Mary's

I wasn’t a big fan of Blood Marys. I ordered one a few years ago from a restaurant next to the Exploratorium. It wasn’t great and I never ordered another one again.

Inside my friend’s kitchen, I discovered lime juice made a big honky difference in this breakfast cocktail. It offset the pungent flavor of the tomato juice. My favorite Mary mix for this morning included:

  • Smirnoff Vodka
  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Cholula hot sauce
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Clamato
