The best ever Bloody Mary is quite a claim, but this spicy, peppery recipe that we use at our bar in The Old Spot is definitely up there. Our secret lies in two key areas: top quality tomato juice and our hot horseradish vodka!
METHODDIFFICULTY: Easy 10 MINS
Add all of the Bloody Mary ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake well. Pour through a strainer over two glasses with ice, garnish and serve deliciously cold and fresh.
To make the horseradish vodka, remove the outer skin from the horseradish root and using a potato peeler, peel of around 15 long strips. Add the strips to the vodka with the honey and leave to infuse for 3-4 days in a dark spot before straining and using as required.
** If you don’t have time to make the horseradish vodka, use 1/4 – 1/2 a teaspoon of unsweetened horseradish.
