How to make the ultimate Bloody Mary

Don't forget the hot sauce!


Refreshing, easy to make and of course, full of flavour, a Bloody Mary is one of our absolute favourite cocktails. 

It's a hangover cure, a refreshing drink and a pick-me-up all in one and we seriously can't get enough. While we love popping out to our favourite brunch spot to enjoy a Bloody Mary alongside our eggs benny, we've been spending most of our time at home lately - that doesn't mean we have to forgo our favourite cocktail though. 

We hit up the experts at The Ice House in Ballina, Co Mayo for their easy Bloody Mary recipe so that we could replicate our favourite from the comfort of our own homes. Read on to try their easy Bloody Mary recipe.
