Tomorrow we spring ahead for Daylight Savings, which means more light but less sleep pour moi! #Ugh! There are official ways to reset your clock, such as going to bed earlier (Pffft, lame!) and exposing yourself (that might be fun!) to bright sunlight upon rising. #Nevermind. But, natch, I have a different idea for how to reset your clock for Daylight Savings!
Before you go to bed Saturday night, slink on over to your kitchen and get together all the ingredients you’ll need to make a Bloody Sunrise! I mean, the name of the cocktail is ACTUALLY how you’re going to feel on Sunday morning, but this drink is what’s going to help you cope with getting one less hour of sleep so you can reset your clock!
Bloody Sunrise, the signature cocktail of the Bal Harbour St. Regis Resort in Miami, captures the vibrant citrus flavors of Florida… that means more zing for you zag! You can find the recipe in the official St. Regis ‘The Bloody Mary’ Cocktail Book, along with a bunch of other amazing Bloody Mary recipes. I have the book, I would know! For now, here’s what you’ll need and how to make a Bloody Sunrise.
- 2 key limes, sliced, plus more for ice cubes
- Simple syrup
- 1 pinch celery salt
- 1 pinch coarse black pepper
- 1 pinch crushed red pepper
- 1/2 tbsp / 7.5 ml Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tbsp / 4.5 g grated fresh horseradish root
- 2 oz / 60 ml Clamato® picante juice
- 2 oz / 60 ml tomato juice
- 1 1/2 oz / 45 ml premium vodka
- 1 dried lemon slice, for garnish
- Organic celery, carrot and tomato, skewered on a small metal skewer (pincho), for garnish
Prepare lime-juice ice cubes by mixing 6 parts fresh lime juice, 2 parts water and 2 parts simple syrup. Pour into an ice tray and freeze. For the Bloody Sunrise mix: Muddle the limes, salt, black and red peppers, Worcestershire sauce and horseradish. Add the Clamato and tomato juice. Shake well. Place the lime-juice ice cubes in a highball glass. Add vodka and top with Bloody Sunrise mix. Garnish with the lemon slice and skewered organic vegetables.
