I don’t know about you all, but I like my cocktails sweet and tasty so suffice it to say that I’m not a huge fan of the Bloody Mary. But if you’re like me and are a little leery of this somewhat infamous cocktail then you may want to try out EFFEN Vodka’s version of the Bloody Mary. Unlike most recipes for this drink EFFEN uses their Cucumber Vodka and also calls for basil in their ingredients list. Check out the recipe below and maybe, just maybe, it’ll turn us Bloody Mary skeptics into believers.
2 parts EFFEN® Cucumber Vodka 2 Basil Leaves (torn) 4 parts Tomato Juice
3⁄4 parts Bloody Mary Seasoning
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice and shake. Pour into a serving glass with ice. Garnish with a lime wheel and fresh basil leaf.
