The good old Bloody Mary. 

I am SO into this spicy classic at the moment. Maybe that’s because I’ve had a few hangovers that needed nursing, or maybe it’s just my love of hot and spicy stuff. Either way, I adore them. Especially as a brunch accompaniment. I’ve had a few good ones in my time but I have to say the ‘Daylesford Mary’ that I tried in the Old Spot cafe at Daylesford Organic is the best version of a Bloody Mary I have ever tasted. 

It didn’t appear to have any spectacularly different ingredients aside from organic tomato juice, horseradish, Tabasco and vodka, but the garnish was a work of art! Beetroot was curled and popped on a cocktail stick along with green chilli, lemon, rosemary and of course celery. It almost tasted sweet whilst having a real kick to it. Delicious! 

If you fancy making a batch yourself, Jamie Oliver has a mean classic recipe:
