What you need to make your own Gardener’s Bloody Mary:
Where better to start than with delicious tomato juice which forms the base of this summertime drink.
Vodka – 1 or 2 shots
The perfect addition to the Gardener’s Bloody Mary is a little touch of vodka – add one of two shots to this tasty cocktail.
Tabasco – Season to your taste
For that little bit of spice which makes a Bloody Mary so moreish add a touch of tabasco.
Worcester sauce – Season to your taste
The Gardener’s Bloody Mary wouldn’t be completely without a touch of Worcester sauce, just like with the tabasco season to your taste.
Lemon – 1 lemon (use half for juice/ half for garnish)
A touch of lemon goes a long way to creating the perfect cocktail add half at the beginning of your cocktails making and save half for making an appetising garnish at the end.
Basil Plant – Pick a few leaves
The perfect plant to add a unique flavour to your summer drink – the humble Basil plant is easily grown on your window sill and provides huge amounts of flavour, which is just what this drink needs.
Olives – 3 per cocktail garnish
Try your best not to eat too many whilst creating your cocktail garnish!
Cheddar Cheese – A few cubes for your garnish
What could be better than having some cheese with your delicious tomato based cocktail, add a few cubes of cheese to your garnish for that extra burst of flavour.
Cocktail sticks – 1 per drink
The handiest tool when building a cocktail garnish is the classic cocktail stick – use it build something that will impress everyone having a sip of your Gardener’s Bloody Mary.
