Nothing like a drink to start your day
What's not to love about a Bloody Mary? The fun of the Bloody Mary is it's a unique drink (and meal) to many people. The idea behind the traditional bar staple is simple and basic: seasoned tomato juice and spirit. But since the flavor of tomato can overlap so many food groups, it's a blank canvas to the consumer and everyone has a way they like it. LUXBAR's Manager, Ryan Lindquist, takes us on the journey to make the classic cocktail at home.
2 oz Vodka
4 oz Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix
Rim glass with Gibsons Seasoning Salt
Garnished with Havarti Cheese, Calabrian Sausage, House Pickle, Pickled Cauliflower, Pickled Onion and a Cocktail Shrimp (Optional)
