But the standard Bloody Mary isn't quite at perfection. Sure, the tomato texture will clear your mouth of the previous night's cocktails, but it doesn't leave you with much of a get-up-and-tackle-the-world feeling.
Luckily, the internet has stepped in to address this pressing need. Allow us to introduce you to Hot D, a tomato-based cocktail with all the benefits of an energy drink.
Named for the famous Buddhist mantra "Hair of the Dog," Hot D is essentially a Monster Bloody Mary Rockstar, and when combined with a little vodka, it'll get you through the brunching hours in fine, caffeinated form. The self-proclaimed wake-up juice is sweetened with 100% pure honey, so you won't get the heart-palpitating jolt you feel from fructose-heavy energy drinks. And it doesn't skimp on the tart and spicy highlights that make a Bloody Mary more than just tomato juice.
On top of the usual V8-type ingredients, the brew is packed full of herbal goodies like lycopene, taurine, ginger and our old friend caffeine.
Because there are some things we'd never tinker with.
