My husband is a HUGE Bloody Mary fan. He made me a convert too. Last year when we were traveling we tried as many Bloody Marys as we could fit in. It was so fun, and I was pretty impressed with the variation that exists from one restaurant or bar to the next. Lately, I've been experimenting with unique twists on classic cocktails. With that said, I present to you… the Blood Orange Bloody Mary!Blood oranges are one of the most beautiful fruits! They are in season in the winter, and I look forward to them every year. Now, I know what you're thinking… fruity flavor + bloody mary = kinda weird. I was thinking the same thing… until I tried it. The citrus in this drink is subtle. It enhances but does not overpower the classic flavors. Supplies Needed: Tomato Juice, Vodka, 1 Blood Orange, 1/2 a Lime, Tabasco, Worcestershire Sauce, Sea Salt, Ice Cubes and Celery.Directions: Use lime juice to add sea salt to the rim of your glass. In each glass, combine four parts tomato juice, juice of one blood orange (save one slice for the garnish), one shot vodka (make it a double if you dare….), juice of 1/2 lime, 1 teaspoon tabasco, 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce. Stir with a long spoon. Add a blood orange slice and a piece of celery for garnish. Enjoy!
