There are some people who fight a hangover with the very thing that gave them one in the first place. While they may not use the same type of drink or quite the same amount, there are a lot of people that I know who will do a Bloody Mary mix and drink it when they are feeling the pains the morning after a hard night of partying. While I have never done this, I have seen others do it and swear that it makes them feel much better. I guess it is one of those things about fighting fire with fire!
Anyway, there is one particular kind of Bloody Mary mix that they like to use. It is made with something called Clamato rather than tomatoes. If you look at the word long enough, what it actually is might jump out at you! It is a mix of clam juice and tomato juice. I know that sounds like a weird combination, but don’t knock it until you have tried it. I may not drink this for a hangover, but I knew that I was going to be a fan the moment I tasted it.
This mix is added to vodka and the Clamato juice, and the end result is heaven on earth. It really is that tasty! When my friends and I would drink a Bloody Mary before, it was usually over a shared lunch somewhere. They did not happen that often, perhaps twice a month. With this mix that we now use, it is something that we all drink a lot more often. I still limit myself to how much I will drink, but it is too good to only have twice a month. It is also very easy to mix, and it does make the perfect gift too!
