Anyone fancy a Bloody Mary right now? I have always being curious about this fancy drink. A cocktail made with tomato juice? I thought it was weird, now I love it.
You can buy tomato juice or make it yourself as I did. Place the tomato without seeds or liquid into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and strain with a colander. I also added 2 Tbsp of tomato puree but just to add a bit more red colour.
Then stir in the vodka, lemon juice, perrins sauce, tabasco, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust to your preference. Serve with lots of ice and a celery stalk or a lemon wedge.
