THE CRAZY BLOODY MARY
An old urban legend says that if you turn off all of your lights and say “Crazy Bloody Mary” three times while facing a mirror, one of these cocktails will appear when you turn your lights back on! This drink is a play on a classic Bloody Mary – it’s peppery, spicy, and scary good. Perfect to enjoy on a Sunday morning with brunch, or while curled up on the couch watching a horror film. (This cocktail is also named after our favorite Pearl Jam song.)
Yields: 1 Cocktail
2 ounces vodka [we used Ketel One]
