Where there's brunch, there are Bloody Marys. So at this Sunday's Cinco de Mayo brunch celebration, it just makes sense that we'll be happily sipping Mary's Mexican cousin: the Bloody Maria.
2 ounces tequila (I prefer Camerena Silver)
3 dashes Worcestershire
3 dashes hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly-grated horseradish
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
3 ounces tomato juice
Lime wheel, for garnish
Celery stalk, for garnish
In a shaker filled with ice, combine all the ingredients except the garnishes, and shake until well chilled.
Strain into a tall glass filled with ice. Garnish with a lime wheel and a celery stalk.
- Since a Bloody Mary, or Bloody Maria, is almost like an appetizer feel free to serve salt and pepper shakers on the side for guests to season as they see fit.
