Flask Friday! A Bloody Mary 3 Way

I can not think of a better way to close out true crime week than with a bloody Mary recipe. And not just one bloody Mary recipe; I'm going to give you three bloody Mary recipes!

Ya know, if you say bloody Mary recipe three times in the mirror, you look really drunk.

Like most of my twenties, the exact origin of the name bloody Mary is unclear.

Some say it is named after Mary Tudor, Ms. Bloody Mary herself.

Others say it is in reference it was named after some 1920s drunk's ex-girlfriend.

We do know that the drink originated in a Paris bar during prohibition. The bar was an ex-pat bar called Harry's New York Bar. According to legend, bartender Fernand Periot came up with the drink trying and showed it to a patron who said it reminded him of a cabaret in Chicago called The Bucket of Blood....which is the grossest, weirdest, coolest name for a cabaret ever. Some accounts say that the patron had an ex-girlfriend who worked at the cabaret named Mary, thus the name Bloody Mary.

Possibly.

What is clear is that a bloody Mary is the most popular choice of hangover cure...although, it really doesn't cure a hangover as much as it just prolongs the inevitable.

But, hey- I promised you 3 bloody Mary recipes, so I can't waste all my time going on about the history of the drink, so let's get down to it.

Recipe #1: The traditional bloody Mary:
6oz tomato juice
2-2.5oz vodka (I used Absolut)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2-1 tsp of horseradish
3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
3-5 dashes of Tobasco to taste
squeeze of lemon

shake ingredients in cocktail glass and pour

Recipe #2: The Caesar
You can thank our friends to the north for this one. In Canada, you drink a Caesar, not a bloody Mary

6 oz Clamato juice
2-2.5oz vodka
salt and pepper to taste
salt and pepper to taste
1/2-1 tsp of horseradish
3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
3-5 dashes of Tobasco to taste
squeeze of lime
rim glass with celery salt

Recipe #3: The Bloody Dirty


A dirty martini with a bloody twist

2oz vodka
1oz dry vermouth
2oz tomato juice or Clamato
2tbs olive juice
blue cheese stuffed olives

shake all ingredients except olives in shaker with ice. Pour and garnish with olives.

And of course, I made another dumb video. Spot the Letterkenny references.
