Bloody Mary

The true origins of the Bloody Mary are disputed, but the combination of vodka and tomato juice became popular in the 1920s, reportedly because it was a regular bespoke order from comedian George Jessel at New York’s famous 21 Club.

1 1⁄2 oz / 37.5 ml vodka
3 oz / 75 ml tomato juice
1⁄2 oz / 12.5 ml lemon juice
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce

2 pinches ground black pepper
1 pinch celery salt

Gently shake all the ingredients with ice for at least half a minute before pouring into an ice-filled Highball glass. Serve with a celery stick.
