Retro Cocktail Inspiration: The Bloody MaryJanuary 6, 2014 by Unique Vintage | Lifestyle, Pin Up, Vintage Inspired
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
- 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!
