Spice up your life…

How? With International Hot and Spicy Day, of course. It is a thing and it’s happening January 16th.

What’s that best way to celebrate this and still follow all the lockdown rules? A stay-at-home-Bloody-Mary-making-session and we’ve gone ahead and taken the heavy lifting out of this by supplying you with some of our favourite recipes, helpfully detailed below.

Black Cow Vodka “Bloody Cow”

There are many ways to make a Bloody Mary but why not try it with the deliciously smooth Black Cow Vodka. The only vodka made entirely from whey from grass-grazed cow’s milk leftover from the cheese-making process, producing an exceptionally smooth vodka with a unique creamy
character. We think Black Cow’s Bloody Cow, is one of the best!

• 50ml Black Cow
• 25ml Sweet Sherry
• Top up with Tomato Juice
• Good splash Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
• Good splash Tabasco
• Dash Celery Salt
• Black Pepper
• Lemon Juice

Mix the ingredients and serve in a highball glass over ice. Garnish with a pickled chilli.
Spread the celery salt roughly around the rim.
