NAN FLANAGAN’S “BLOODY NAN”
This is basically a Bloody Maria, if you’d like to NOT use tequila, you may use vodka or gin or even omit the alcohol for a virgin (which, I’m sure, Nan would like). You may also use any mixer you’d like or even make your own. The “special” flavor in our version of this drink comes from grilling the tomatoes for juice over an open flame. It adds a smoky quality to the beverage.
Hot Pickled Vegetables to Garnish
Blood Mary Mix
Rim the glass with a wedge of lime and then tap the glass into your salt (if you like a salt-rimmed glass, we did it for looks here; personally I hate salt on the rim of a glass). Add your ice and then an ounce of Tequila. Next add your Bloody Mary Mix and extra horseradish (to taste). Top off with your Tomato Juice and garnish with your veggies!
