The Bloody Maria Cocktail
Updated: Jan 27, 2021
New Year , New Hangover?
2021 is here and guess what? That means it is time to reflect on what has been a difficult year for most of us on this planet. The one thing we can take from this is that we are all in this together and that family and friends are the most important things in life. I don't know about you guys but i am going to use 2021 to chase my dreams and be happier in life.
So with that being said if you are waking up today with a hangover I may have a solution for you.
This is the Bloody Maria , it's the Southern counterpart of it's old mate Bloody Mary. The big difference is Maria uses Tequila instead of Vodka. The tequila mixed with spices and tomato juice gives it a unique vegetal earthiness which makes it surprisingly and enjoyably different.
I love a good Bloody Mary , but when i tasted this i was so surprised at the difference. This is so delicious that you will forget you have a hangover because of the whirlwind of flavors going on in your mouth!
Enjoy responsibly Rustys and remember to drink better!
