Everything you need to know to celebrate National Bloody Mary Day

Happy National Bloody Mary Day!

January 1 is National Bloody Mary Day, which is very fitting since the drink is commonly known to be a great treatment for hangovers.

And let’s face it, A LOT of people have hangovers after partying on New Year’s Eve.

Bloody Marys happen to be my personal fave hangover cure. So, I figured I’d share my own recipe for this glorious occasion.

2 oz. Vodka
1 1/2 cup V8 Vegetable Juice (Original or Spicy Hot)
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
2 dashes hot sauce
1 tsp. olive juice
1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper
2 lime wedges
1 celery stalk
3 olives
1 toothpick or skewer
1 cup ice cubes

Start with ice in a tall glass. Grind black pepper over ice. Add Worcestershire, hot sauce and olive juice. Squeeze juice of one lime wedge. Pour in vodka, followed by V8. Garnish with celery stick, skewered olives and unsqueezed lime wedge.
