The bloody Mary has been around for many years, probably since most of us were even born. In the past couple years there has been a resurgence of the older cocktails. What was old is now new, I wonder what is behind this phenomenon. I wonder if it just because history repeats its self or some young person going through their grandparents recipe books. Whatever the case may be, you will not hear any complaints from this guy. I am a lover of the past, and love when someone breathes new life into an old favorite. In today’s article I thought that we could take a look back at the Bloody Mary A Classic With A New Twist. I have the original, as well as a few new twists that I think are going to become some of your favorite cocktails to share with your friends and family members.

To Make; Combine both ingredients into a cocktail shaker with some ice, shake until cold. Pour mixture into a spiced rimmed glass and garnish this cocktail with a lime wedge, celery stalk, bacon, or olive’s. It’s your drink, have it however you want.
