Bloody Mary Cocktail

Friday night and the weather in London has changed, now it is very cloudy and cold, that means that we probably stayed at home, so I decided that instead of Friday night vino (wine) the hubby and I will do cocktail night, starting with some nice Bloody Marys!

I used a spiced tomato juice that I found in the supermarket, also instead of using vodka, I used tequila! It is always nice to add a touch of Mexico to things! Then to garnish I just simply cut some celery stalks, lime wedges, olives, cherry tomatoes and a sliced homemade pickled jalapeño, I rimmed the glass with some ground piquin chilli with salt and to make the cocktail I added Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, lime juice, ground black pepper, ice cubes, celery salt & a shot of my favourite Tequila!

Now I just need for the husband to arrive home to surprise him with these lovely cocktails!
