Bloody Mary Day is an annual feast celebrated on January 1st of every year. It is the first drink holiday celebrated at the start of the year. If you still have the feel of last night’s alcohol, then it is the perfect hangover cure despite being a cocktail. It is traditionally served over the ice in a tall glass like a flared pint, highball, or hurricane glass. The day celebration wouldn’t be complete without drinking the world’s most popular hangover cure.
“My favorite thing is always a nice, inexpensive draft beer, but if someone wants something a little more complicated than that, then I’d like a Michelada, which is where I take beer and a little bit of either a spicy or not-so-spicy Bloody Mary, mix it like six to one [ratio], so it’s kind of a red beer.” – Mario Batali
