Drink recipe: New Orleans Bloody Mary

 More Bloody Marys to make bloody merry over!  This one is courtesy of “Cockail Guru” Jonathan Pogash, who made the drink on TV over the weekend. (Watch it here )

A few special touches make this version really interesting: 

1. the main spirit used is absinthe, not tequila or vodka, and it’s relatively light on the tomato juice, plus a good dose of lime juice instead of the lemon that brightens most Bloodies. I haven’t yet tried it, but it sounds like  a refreshing twist.

2. this drink is not for instant gratification freaks. Jon adds savory extras like salt & pepper, horseradish, and Tabasco, and then lets it meld for a full 24 hours

3. Then — and only then! — he pours it over ice and garnishes with something smoky and pickled, like okra.
