Bloody Room Service

Bloody Room Service

While on my honeymoon I had a craving for a Bloody Mary, but I was not about to abandon my pregnant wife and wander off to a bar. We ordered room service earlier and I had an abundance of left over condiments from my delicious Kobe burger. A quick step to the in-room mini-bar for some vodka and the ice from our water pitcher were the last things I needed to make a mighty fine Bloody Mary: savory, a bit briney and peppery with a hint of onion. You could just as easily make this at home, in fact I would encourage you to do so! Unfortunately I did not have access to a cocktail shaker that night so I made do with a ketchup bottle as a cocktail shaker and strain it out with a fork. Not bad in a pinch!

  • Ketchup (1 tbs)
  • Vodka (1 oz)
  • Grey Poupon Mustard (1/8 tsp)
  • Salt (1/2 tsp)
  • Black Pepper (1/4 tsp)
  • Spanish Olives (1/2 tsp minced)
  • Kalamata Olives (1/4 tsp minced)
  • Red Onion (1 tsp minced)
  • Bread & Butter Pickle (1/2 tsp minced)
  • A Leaf of Lettuce
  • A Small Plate
  1. Mince all of your veggies and toss them into your cocktail shaker.
  2. Add your ketchup, mustard, salt, and pepper on top of your veggies.
  3. Shake it all up without ice!
  4. Take your glass and wet the rim with tap water.
  5. Take a small plate and coat it with salt and pepper, then dip the wet rim of your glass into the salt and pepper.
  6. Drop some ice cubes into your salt and pepper rimmed glass.
  7. Strain the contents of your cocktail shaker into the glass.
  8. Take a leaf of lettuce and wet it with tap water, then place it on the plate of salt and pepper.
  9. Roll the lettuce up into a nice, tight spear and place it into your cocktail. Enjoy!
