How To Make The Ultimate Bloody Mary, Because You Deserve It

Don't forget the hot sauce!

You say 'tomato'; we say, 'another Bloody Mary', stat!

If you ask us, no weekend is truly complete unless it involves brunch. But over the past four months, people across the country are having to press pause on their usual weekend routines, and staying home under social distancing measures - and sadly, that included popping out for brunch.

However, what it did introduce was brunch at home. Whether it was a brunch box from our go-to place or making one of these delicious recipes with friends over zoom – at home brunch is a gamechanger. See, in many ways, at home brunch trumps going out for brunch: no waiting in line, as many mimosas as your heart desires, and best of all, eating in your pyjamas. The only thing missing? A delicious, hangover-curing, bloody mary.
