The best Bloody Mary recipe that you need in your cocktail arsenal!

This weekend I'm headed to New Orleans for Voodoo Fest. Let me state the obvious here, get that out of the way... YOU MUST FOLLOW ALONG ON SNAPCHAT AND INSTA. I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that there will probably be some cocktails flowing this weekend. 

New Orleans + Music Festival + Sarah = Cocktails. 

These days, I get vicious hangovers. Hangovers that wipe me out for an entire day. I remember the good old days when I was 21 years old in college and could stay out all night, sleep till noon, grab a burrito from Moes (just steps from my apartment - talk about clutch) and be on my way to a productive day of classes. Gone are those lovely times, here to stay are the 29 years old times of incapacitation for 24 hours. 

Is that even a word? incapacitation? I dunno, this is a post about booze, just lighten up and go with it. 

I'm sure we will have some very late nights this upcoming weekend, and will have to get up EARLY to do it all over again the next day. Not only am I doing the Voodoo Festival, but my best friend also lives in New Orleans and I've gotta carve out time to spend with her. It will be a JAM PACKED schedule with no room for a hangover. 

I have a handy little trick packed up my sleeve though, and it's called Never Too Hungover Prevention and Never Too Hungover Boost, prevention and boost are each different varieties available! This is THE BEST way to rehydrate in a flash, neutralize toxins and restore vital nutrients to get you on your way to being a productive member of society again and not a big fat blob on the couch - aka me during a hangover

Even if you aren't a big drinker, it's a great way to get a healthy energy, electrolyte and multivitamin boost! Never Too Hungover should be consumed before/while drinking for optimal results, and comes in two flavors: limeade and berry!  

This weekend there are NINE (omg, yes NINE) of us staying in the cutest little - well very large - Air BnB! Y'all it's a yellow house with wrap around porch, be still my heart! 

Since we will all be in the house together, I plan on making my mom's world famous Bloody Mary for everyone on Saturday morning to really kick the party into full gear all over again. This is her recipe, I won't try and steal her thunder here. 

Tell her on twitter how awesome she is when you make it for your friends! I personally shopped at Sam's Club for all of my ingredients, and will do so again in Nola since I'll be making this drink for so many people! 

Here is what you'll need:

|| Ingredients ||

Full Glass of Ice

1/4 tsp Old Bay 
plus full plate to make seasoned rim for glass

1/2 Tsp Horseradish 

1 Tsp Worchestire Sauce

Salt and Pepper to taste

1.5 oz Vodka 
(I used Bacon marinated Vodka - I let 8 slices of crispy bacon sit in 2 cups of Tito's vodka for 7 days)

Half a lime + Lime Wedge for Old Bay Rim

2-3 Dashes Hot Sauce

Tomato Juice

(I used olives, celery and shrimp) 

|| Directions ||

Start by taking your lime wedge and running it along the rim of your glass. Then place your rim in the plate of old bay seasoning and turn, coating entire rim. Fill glass to brim with ice. 

Add in horseradish, worchestire sauce, salt and pepper, vodka, old bay, lime and hot sauce. Then fill your glass with tomato juice and stir. 

Top with all of the snacks. ALL OF THEM! 

It just occurred to me you're probably at work right now looking at delicious photos of this bloody mary. My bad, y'all. My bad. 

Pin now, make later! 

Oh, and for all of my Dallas and Houston buddies, Never Too Hungover is not quite available in stores yet, but there is a limited time only Road Show happening in Dallas and Houston area Sam's Clubs.
