If you are feeling like taking a day off the ‘sauce’, why not try this cocktail but as an ABV Free drink… Usually known as a Virgin Mary, we often refer to it as a Bloody Shame! Just omit the alcoholic ingredients and proceed making as for a Bombay Mary. Also, as there are admittedly a lot of ingredients in this cocktail, you can always make a ‘pre-mix’ of all the spicy ingredients by multiplying all the amounts by say x20, mix them all together and pour into a sterilized bottle and keep in the fridge until you next fancy a cocktail. When you do, add 15mls of the pre-mix to the gin, sherry, citrus wedges, tomato juice and ice.
