For whatever reason, January is traditionally the time of year when we re-ignite our burning love for the Bloody Mary. Maybe it’s something about the end of all those holidays that leads to us requiring the hair of the dog a bit more often, or maybe we’re just internalizing “The Winter of Mixed Drinks” by Frightened Rabbit more deeply than usual due to the weather…who knows. But sure enough, by this time we’ve exhausted our Bloody Mary options and are looking for something a bit more…unusual. So when we came across this recipe from the brilliant folks at A&B American Style Condiments, we sent up a silent prayer to the hangover gods. And then, we figured we’d share it with you guys.
The March Hare:
-Fresh ginger, peeled and grated
-A&B American Style Pepper Sauce
-Celery, for garnish
Add the fresh ginger to the carrot juice, letting sit so the flavors can mingle more deeply (if time allows). Add fresh lemon juice, as much A&B American Style Pepper Sauce as you fancy, and vodka. Garnish with celery and enjoy.
