Bloody Mary and Hair of the Dog

Happy New Year’s Day! We want to help get you on the right foot with your resolutions, and since today is also National Bloody Mary Day it’s the perfect opportunity to clear out any lingering “fun” from last night. If you’re hurting a little from NYE festivities, a Bloody Mary is the perfect way to kick it to the curb and start afresh.

NYE

Below are two cocktails that mimic the healing powers of a Bloody Mary and one Bloody Mary variation. Cheers!
