Lets Cook Mexican

Bloody Mary Cocktail

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!
