This year, my mixed drinks have mostly been one of these two. One is non-alcoholic! For shame.
Put a couple of ice cubes in a large tumbler
Nearly fill with V8 or other tomato based vegetable juice
Splash in some Worcestershire sauce and 5-6 drops of Tabasco
Stir with a length of celery
If you add a measure of vodka this becomes a Bloody Mary. Two or more measures an it becomes a Bloody Hell! Mary.
Campari, Lemon and Lime
Pour a generous measure of chilled Campari into a tumbler. If you don't usually drink Campari be cautious as it is very bitter. Add a similar amount of chilled lime cordial. Top up with chilled lemonade.
