Essentially a bloody mary with gin. We feel our seaweed gin works wonders in this cocktail. The savoury coastal botanicals match well with the umami tomato juice and the juniper, making a rich and satisfying cocktail.
Fill a shaker with ice, then add:
- 60ml Dry Gin
- 120ml Tomato juice
- 20ml Lemon juice
- Seasonings to taste (celery salt, black pepper, tabasco, lea and perrins)
Give it a very quick shake, and then pour into a highball with ice. No need to shake too long as its being served on ice anyway.
If you’re making this for someone else and unsure how spicy to make it, ask them on a scale of 1-10 how hot they hot they would like it. Add the corresponding number of dashes of hot sauce. Personally I always reach for tabasco with this drink. After a number of years experimenting with different hot sauces, I feel certain comfort using the classic tabasco.
