The Bloody Mary should help. The tomato juice provides a variety of vitamins and nutrients to combat the damages of excessive alcohol consumption.
It dates back to 1921, when bartender Fernand Petiot served its originator at Harry’s Bar in Paris, before moving to the United States and creating a spicier version with the addition of Tabasco in 1933 at the Regis Bar in New York. And thus the brunchtime hair of the dog was born.
Here’s the classic Bloody Mary recipe. Enjoy!
1 1/2 ounces (1 jigger) vodka
1/2 cup tomato juice
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Worcestershire sauce to taste
Tabasco to taste
1 celery stick for garnish
1 lemon wedge for garnish
Combine the vodka, the tomato juice, the lemon juice, the Worcestershire sauce, the Tabasco, 1 cup ice cubes, and salt and pepper to
taste, shake the mixture well, and strain it into a tall glass filled with ice cubes. Garnish the Bloody Mary with the celery stick and the lemon wedge.
