Bloody good drink for your next clambake

Bloody good drink for your next clambake
A great coastal clambake starts early in the moring.  Foraging for drifwood and seaweed and building a slow simmering fire takes time.  Around 11am its time for a break and maybe brunch.  Whether it is toast or Eggs Benedict you choose for a repast, this briny, hearty version of the Bloody Mary satisfys and supercharges.

Known as the Bloody Cesar, the recipe hails from just north of the rocky coast of Maine.  Those Canadians know how to celebrate!

1 tsp Bayou Blackening Balm
1 oz. Thyme Infused Vodka
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (optional)
1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce
Clamato Juice (or a mixture of two parts clam juice to one part tomato juice)
1/4 lime, sliced in 2 rounds
Celery hearts, for garnish

Bloody good drink for your next clambake

Fill the rimmed pint glass with ice. Pour in vodka, Bayou Blackening Balm, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco; top with Clamato. Gently squeeze one lime slice into the glass, including pulp. Garnish with a leafy celery heart and remaining lime slice.
