Cocktail Anatomy: Bloody Polonius

bloody polonius

Poor ol’ Polonius falls victim to Hamlet’s crazy antics. Despite his somewhat nosy behavior, anyone who has Ophelia as a daughter probably deserves a drink. Here we bring you one of the hundreds of possible variations on a Bloody Mary.

You will need:

  • Vodka
  • Tomato juice
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 lemon slice
  • 1 pinch of celery salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated horseradish
  • Tabasco
  • Black pepper

Prepare a tall glass with a couple of ice cubes and: the lemon slice, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, celery salt, Tabasco, the fresh horseradish, and a few twists of freshly ground black pepper. Stir it all together enough to coat the ice cubes with the concoction. Pour two parts tomato juice and one part vodka and stir really really well! Garnish with a speared pickle or celery stalk or heck, why not both. Enjoy. Happy Friday!
