MARY BLOODY MARY
You’ve more than likely heard the phrase, ‘hair of the dog’. You might even believe it’s just an old wives’ tale, apart from the shot of whiskey you left in the bottle next to your bed! Unfortunately, it’s only temporary.
Try a good old fashioned ‘Bloody Mary’ instead. It works, because whilst your blood’s dealing with the new intake of alcohol, it’s ignoring the old stuff. And in the meantime, the tomato juice and celery are full of vitamins and they help you gain energy.
Here’s how to fix yourself a lifesaver:
1 1/2 – 2 ounces vodka
4 ounces tomato juice
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco and black pepper to taste.
Over ice in a tall glass, add the spices, then vodka. Fill with tomato juice and stir. Garnish with a celery stick and a lime wedge. And then, knock it back in one shot.
In Mexico, Micheladas are considered the best cure for a hangover.
Old wives in Mexico also suggest putting ice cubes in a cup and sprinkling salt on top. Then, squeeze a couple of lemons onto the ice cubes and then sprinkle some black pepper on top of that. Next, put a shot of tequila over the ice.
Now add a bottle of beer, half a cup of Clamato juice, add tapatio sauce and stir. Drink heartily and you’ll feel much better. (A slight downside – you’ll never be sober ever again).
Salt (any coarse salt will do)
2 lime, juiced
1 12 oz. can or bottle Mexican beer
1/2 tsp. Tajin or hot sauce of choice, e.g. Tabasco (optional)
3 oz of Clamato (Clamato contains clam juice and tomato juice)
