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.

Williams-Sonoma Cosmopolitan

Williams Sonoma Cosmopolitan

Combine following in a shaker ⅔ full of ice

2 ounces citrus vodka
½ ounce triple sec
½ ounce cranberry juice cocktail
½ fresh lime juice

Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.

This makes a drier, less sweet version of a cosmo. Often we even skip the citrus vodka and use an unflavored vodka.
