January 1 is ‘National Bloody Mary Day,’ Because Hangovers

January 1st is “National Bloody Mary Day.” I’m not actually privy to why the 1st was named the official day for the drink, but I’m willing to bet that a few bottles of champagne the night before might potentially have something to do with it.

Bloody Mary’s go with hangover like nothing else, and they can be made simply with just some mix and vodka, or elaborately with your own special mix of spices and accoutrements (I once saw a whole rotisserie chicken on a Bloody Mary – respect).

If you’re looking for a little inspiration for your celebratory Jan 1 Bloody, here are a few options:

Mutti Mary

?Pinch black pepper
