The Augustus Cocktail - The Bloodiest

It's the weekend.  Whew.  We made it through another week, dear readers.  This is cause for celebration.  And the brunch hours are upon us.  You're craving a Bloody Mary, you say?  So are we.  So are we.

When the common mixture of Tomato Juice and Vodka just isn't enough, we recommend upping the ante and adding more garnishes - Fresh Mozzarella and Prosciutto to that oh so dull Miss Mary.

The Augustus Cocktail

1 oz Vodka (we used Absolut) served in a highball glass filled with ice
Fill with V8 or Clamato
4-5 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
4-5 dashes Tabasco or Habanero Hot Sauce (these ladies like it hot)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 lime
Garnish with Fresh Mozzarella, Prosciutto, Jalapeno slice, stalk of celery, and green olives.

I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

We'll be in the kitchen mixing one of these delicious numbers up, so you know where to find us.
