Here at Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub, soaking in the tub isn’t the only thing we offer. There’s also our Virtual Tiki Bar, offering drinks of all descriptions to get the party started. Here’s a recipe for one of our favourites.
- 2 measures vodka
- Tabasco sauce
- Worcestershire sauce
- Lemon juice
- Thick tomato juice
- Ice cubes
Ideal as an aperitif, the Bloody Mary is an all time classic – and Platinum Al likes ’em spicy.
Start by throwing some ice cubes into your cocktail mixer, and then add lemon juice. To make this spicy (recommended), add your Tabasco sauce and Worcestershire sauce liberally. Add salt and pepper – not any kind of specialised cocktail condiments, use the stuff from your kitchen cabinet. And don’t be shy. Then it’s vodka time. Finally top off with as much tomato juice as you can fit in the shaker.
Now you need to give the mixture a good shake. Pour out into a tall glass, serve with a straw and mixing stick. An olive will make a nice addition.
Feel free to experiment to your taste (note the lack of recommended amounts for most of the above ingredients). But again, please note that I recommend this drink nice and spicy. It’s ideal to start the night off, but I wouldn’t be trying to down Bloody Marys after a full meal.
Be careful out there.
