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.
Below are two cocktails that mimic the healing powers of a Bloody Mary and one Bloody Mary variation. Cheers!
1 oz Lemon juice
1 tsp Powdered sugar
1 Egg white
Shake vigorously with ice in a cocktail shaker, then strain into glass. Float cold seltzer water on top. Serve with stirrer.
1 Ice cube
4 oz Champagne, chilled
Large wine glass
Pour the brandy into wine glass, add the curaçao and Fernet-Branca and drop in an ice cube. Stir gently. Gently pour in the champagne.
2 oz chilled Clamato (optional)
1 bottle or can chilled Mexican lager
2 oz fresh Lime juice
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp hot sauce (such as Cholula or Tabasco)
A couple dashes Maggi Seasoning
1/2 tsp Chili powder
Lime wedges (for garnish)
Mix the salt and chili powder together on a small plate. Rub the rim of a pint glass or Mason jar with a lime wedge and dip in salt mixture. Fill the salt-rimmed pint glass with ice. Pour the Clamato, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, lime juice, and Maggi seasoning in the pint glass. Stir the ingredients together. Pour beer into the glass, and garnish with lime wedges. Add beer to glass per individual taste. (*All recipes adapted from firstwefeast.com)
