If, like us, you’ve already turned day drinking into an olympic sport during ‘silly season’, your liver will thank us for this *almost healthy* hangover saviour.
Adding a perfectly sour and spicy twist to this celebrated classic, our Fermented Red Sriracha is the Bloody Mary ingredient you never knew was missing. Paired with local Aussie vodka, Idle Hour (the spiced rye texture adds extra depth of flavour), this elevated savoury tipple will hit all the right spots, hungover or not.
Putting money on the fact that you don't want to scroll through the history of Bloody Mary's, we'll just get straight to it...
Bloody Good Bloody Mary
Time: 5 mins prep/3 mins devour
500ml of organic tomato juice
100ml Idle Hours Vodka
1 tbsp Agri Fermented Red Sriracha
Dash of Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin Salt
1 tbsp Peter Watson Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
Celery sticks (to garnish)
Stock up on your Bloody Mary essentials. Our advice: go as premium as you can with the ingredients - we’re far from pretentious, but the quality (and hangover-curability) will show.
We found organic tomato juice at our local market, but if you're feeling a little fancy or have a wave of sober energy, we highly applaud a homemade alternative.
Measure the vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
In lieu of a cocktail shaker, a big jug will do the trick. Give it a few gentle shakes or swirls to mix everything together.
If you've read any of our recipes, you'll know we prefer the free-pour method to strict measures. We recommend a 'generous tablespoon' of Fermented Red Sriracha, but if you like heat, dial it up a notch (or three).
Fill your highball with ice and pour your Bloody Mary mix in. If your hangover has reached severe levels, we'll forgive you for devouring your drink at this step. The ingredients will work their magic in about 30 minutes. If this doesn’t work, it might be time to reach for something stronger!
Prep your garnishes - this part is important. For those morning-after's, a few sprigs of celery will suffice. If you’re entering a Bloody Mary competition, we’d highly recommend sourcing some quail eggs to make a miniature brekkie accompaniment, or use your imagination to create something Guiness World Records-worthy!
We’d love to see your creations @addagri.
*something about the vitamin C in tomato juice, blah blah…but that’s not why we drink it! If you are into the health benefits, be safe in the knowledge that a few splashes of Agri will also help increase your metabolism whilst giving your senses a cold slap around the face.
