Well – did you have a wonderful Christmas? I sure hope so. Now to think about New Year’s. Or maybe you over did it a little yesterday?! I have just the thing to either make you feel better today – or a little recipe to keep on hand for New Year’s Day. This Bloody Mary recipe is the perfect thing. When my hubs would tend bar he told me that this is the “go-to” beverage for those trying to cure that hangover. I’m going to take his word for it as I have never tried this remedy myself. But this spicy Bloody Mary ought to help your ails.
