More Tips

Here are a few more tips from for the next time you’re blearily mixing up your favorite hangover cure.

  • Make each Bloody Mary fresh. Much like Charlie Sheen, Bloody Marys are chemically “highly unstable,” and so quickly become less delicious.
  • Use plenty of ice. It helps slow that unwanted chemical breakdown.
  • Add fresh ingredients. Even if you use a mix, they’re necessary to enhance the aroma and therefore the taste.
  • Use good juice, not good vodka. This isn’t rocket science: Juice makes up the majority of a traditional Bloody Mary, so it’s important that it tastes good. The vodka, on the other hand, is overwhelmed by all the spices, so you’ll barely taste it.

    All very good tips.I would offer a suggestion: Try using gin instead of vodka. The botanicals in gin really allow all the other flavors to come through. A dash of mustard powder gives it a nice snap too. Cheers!
