Bloody Mary

Bloody Marys are a standard at weekend brunches and they’re hard to mess up but as far as I’m concerned this is the recipe to beat.

Combine the following in a shaker ⅔ full of ice…

2 ounces vodka
4 ounces tomato juice
1 ounce fresh lime juice
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Generous pinch of salt
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
2 dashes of Worcestershire suce
2 dashes of Tabasco sauce

Shake well and strain into a chilled highball glass (the hurricane shown here is impressive as well). Garnish with a stalk of celery and a slice of lime.

Watergate Coffee

One ounce Coffee Liqueur
One ounce Orange Liqueur

Combine in your coffee mug.

Top with hot coffee and whipped cream.

The orange goes unexpectedly well with the coffee.
