Healing Hangovers with Lord Darnley's Bloody Mary Mix
Hangovers. Wretched, all-consuming hangovers. The kind of hangovers that gnaw at the pit of your stomach, coating your parched body with the vaporized stench of last night's spirits. Since turning 30, the word "hangover' has entailed much more than a morning headache, two ibuprofen, and a Red Bull. Yes, the over-30 hangover requires 24 hours of bed ridden misery, a Netflix marathon of bad television, and crappy pizza delivery. And if you're lucky, a damn strong bloody mary. The website for Lord Darnley's Bloody Mary Mix prominently asks the question, "Hangover Hell?" To which, I have often answered with a groggy but resounding "Yes!" In fact, if I didn't know any better, I'd say this mix was specifically designed for the worst of the worst hangovers.
4 Reasons Why Your Hangover Needs Lord Darnley's Bloody Mary Mix
- Consistency reigns supreme. This mix isn't so heavy as to gag your already gag-induced reflexes, and it's not so light as to feel unsatisfying.
- Deep, restorative tomato flavor. Although a bit on the pasty side, this type of prominent savory essence is the bloody mary equivalent of chicken soup for your boozy soul.
- Horseradish-phobes delight. No horseradish means no burning bloody mary liquid of fire for your insides.
- All natural with no high fructose corn syrup. After the hell you just put your body through, the last thing you need is some crappy, chemical-filled cocktail.
The ingredients list also includes green olive juice, celery salt, bacon salt, and cilantro, though I suggest you forget all of that. I find it very difficult to pick out any of these flavors individually, and without the tell tale sign of cilantro flakes floating amidst my crimson cocktail, I wouldn't even know the cilantro was there. Instead, you should focus on what feels like a very traditional, tomato-centered take on a classic bloody mary recipe. Perfect for healing what ails you.
