Bloody Ginger Mary … She’s nothin’ but trouble!

Bloody Ginger Mary …. She’s nothin’ but trouble!


Oh Mary, you’ve done it now! I’m excited to share a wee recipe bringing together Hughes Distillery’s RubyBlue Potato Vodka and Pokertree’s feisty ginger beer. She’s your saviour in a glass, full of vitamins and spice – your classic bloody Mary with a feisty ginger twist!

The vodka packs a punch at 40% ABV, 80 Proof, distilled in small batches by husband and wife team Stuart & Barbara Hughes in their craft distillery in Lisburn, Co. Antrim. It’s smooth and incognito in this recipe, but definitely not innocuous… it plays it’s part perfectly in this cocktail! The plain ole’ Bloody Mary is given a perfect ten make-over with the addition of Pokertree’s ginger beer. This beer is so refreshing, spicy and full of flavour. This Mary will settle even the worst of hangovers, promise.

Go. Mary, now!

Settle down…

Calories per serving: 212 Calories

Cover a saucer with sea salt (Don’t worry! You won’t use all of the salt!). Wet the rim of the serving glasses with tomato juice. Dip the rim of the glasses into the sea salt to create a salty crust around the rim.

Add the vodka and tomato juice to the serving glass.

Mix the lemon juice, zest, grated ginger and hot sauce together and add to the glass along with the ice. Stir to mix well.

Add Pokertree Ginger Beer to the glass and serve with a celery stalk.
