Better living through Science…..maybe


I am not 100% sold on this one.  I’ve tasted some really cheap vodka in the past and I cannot imagine that this would have any positive impact.  However, I would love to be a test subject on this study.

The article is after the jump, but in the meantime- Here is a Classic Bloody Mary Recipe (Visit for more recipes)

The Classic Bloody Mary
  • 1 quart tomato juice
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
  • lime slices
  • celery stalks (optional)


Cheap vodka is key

For revellers regretting the previous night’s excesses, the Bloody Mary is the definitive lunchtime hangover cure.

Combining vodka, tomato and spices, the 90-year-old concoction remains one of the world’s most popular cocktails.

Now scientists believe they have cracked the secret of the perfect Bloody Mary.

The trick, they say, is to use cheap vodka and quality tomato juice, and to serve it on ice.

And drink it within 30 minutes to prevent the mix of chemicals that provide the refreshing kick from breaking down.

US scientist, Dr Neil Da Costa, said the perfect Bloody Mary should contain high-quality tomato juice, cheap vodka, fresh lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, horseradish, black pepper and celery salt. The intense, spicy flavour masks the vodka, so it made little sense using expensive brands, he added. - Daily Mail
