Wikipedia ~ V-8 (Fair Use)

I enjoy the occasional Bloody Mary (or two) but seldom feel like fussing with 15 different ingredients to make one.

The Bloody Mary has been called the world’s most complex cocktail by bartenders who garnish the drink with shrimp, crab claws, pickled beans, beef ribs, Scotch Eggs, cold cuts, and/or the kitchen sink.

That’s about to change.  Less is More.

After a tough day, who has the time or patience to assemble Vodka, Tomato Juice, Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco Sauce, Celery Salt, Black Pepper, Cayenne, Horseradish, Shrimp, Celery, Carrots, Cocktail Onions, Crab Claws, Lemon Juice, Olives, and Salt to make a drink?

Not me.  I’m a Lazy Bartender. 

Now, just in time for weekend celebrations  including the Memorial Day holiday in the States, here’s the . . .

Mickey-Ta-DaaaLazy Bartender’s Bloody Mary

* 3 parts Spicy Hot V-8 Juice
* 1 part Smirnoff Citrus Vodka

Pour.  Stir.  Add ice.  Enjoy.

And, of course, repeat as necessary.
