Best Ever Bloody Mary
Vodka 50ml (we like Ketel One)
Tomato juice 200ml
Handful of basil leaves
Dry sherry 5ml
Worcestershire sauce 5 dashes
Tabasco 5 dashes
Creamed horseradish 1tsp
Baby plum tomatoes
A squeeze of lemon juice, plus a wedge
Put all the ingredients into one half of a cocktail shaker with a pinch of salt and pepper, and rather than shaking, pour into the other half of the shaker then back again. Repeat this a few times until well mixed.
Strain into a tall glass filled with ice, and garnish with a celery stick, lemon wedge, tomatoes and olives to serve.
