Liquid Salad

Bloody Mary, the Liquid Salad

The bloody mary bridges the speakeasy and the herb garden; it’s a liquid salad into which you can not only pour pretty much any kind of base alcohol you like but also sprinkle parsley, basil or cilantro, and, while you’re at it, cram in hunks of vegetables, usually pickled, of many types.........with tomato season almost upon us, this is an excellent time of year to figure out which bloody is your bloody and to ponder the riddle of a drink at once nutritious and naughty, packed with vitamins and vice. | NYTimes
