"People like a Bloody Mary in the morning because of its salty but fresh taste, especially after a long night out. When making it, pay attention to the ingredients. Add the right amount of each so you taste all of the components together, otherwise the Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces will overpower the vodka.”
