Ingredients for a Bloody Mary
- 1 1/2 ounces (1 jigger) Citron vodka (really lightens it up!)
- 1/2 cup tomato juice or V8 (or to top of glass)
- 1 teaspoon of Spicy Fennel Sea Salt
- Worcestershire sauce to taste
- Tabasco to taste
- 1 fennel frond for garnish
- Spicy Fennel Sea Salt for around the glass
- Sprinkle of Fennel Pollen or Zen-sational Fennel Pollen Blend for garnish
Directions to Mix a Bloody Mary
Combine the vodka, the tomato juice, Spicy Fennel Sea Salt, the Worcestershire sauce, the Tabasco, 1 cup ice cubes, and salt and pepper to taste in a shaker and shake well. Coat the outside lip of the glass with Spicy Fennel Sea Salt. Strain into a glass filled with ice cubes and pop in the fennel fronds.
If you like the hotter Bloody Mary – add some horseradish and I love shrimp as a garnish as well, although the standby classic with the fennel additions does just fine!
