c600x507 Retro Cocktail Inspiration: The Bloody Mary

Few things are better on a cold morning than a spicy savory cocktail and an equally fiery ensemble. Classic, chic, and anything but boring, the Bloody Mary inspired us to create a vintage-inspired look thats as timeless and spirited as its namesake. We styled our favorite little cocktail dress, the Red Three-Quarter Sleeve Vickie Wiggle Dress with the Leopard Pin Up Heels for an added touch of flair. We finished the look with dainty earrings and a touch of old Hollywood glamour with the Pinup Girl Black Glitter Amoeba Handbag and the Black Cat Eye Sunglasses.

The Bloody Mary

Ingredients:

  • 3 ounces of tomato juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • Celery salt
  • Ground pepper
  • Hot sauce to taste
  • Horseradish to taste
  • Celery stalks and/or a pickle spear for garnish
  • lemon and/or lime wedges
  • green olives

1. Mix the tomato juice, vodka, lemon juice, and worcestershire sauce in a highball glass and stir well.

2. Add the seasonings to taste and garnish with a lemon or lime wedge and a celery stalk and/or pickles and olives

Hopefully that gives you the pep in your step you needed on your Monday. Enjoy your week, darlings!
