How to Make the Best Bloody Mary
+ 6 Unexpected Garnishes
Simple with a tad of spice, it's easy to see why the Bloody Mary is the queen of brunch, not to mention she's widely considered the ultimate hangover cure. Dress her up with an unexpected garnish or two (or three!).
4 ounces Bloody Mary mix (we love this one)
1 1/2 ounces vodka
fresh lemon or lime wedges
Fill a tall glass with lots of ice. Pour in the vodka and Bloody Mary mix, and stir together. Squeeze a wedge of lemon or lime into the glass and stir again. Then, go to town on the garnish! The classics include celery, pickles and olives, but we always like to add something a little unexpected.
