Bloody Bull

As the name suggests, this cocktail is a mashup of a Bloody Mary and a Bull Shot. A lot of ingredients overlap and you can see why these two cocktails are made for each other.

What's missing in this drink is the horseradish and celery (and celery salt) of the Bloody Mary. And just like the old NY Bartender's Guide Bloody Mary, there's no mention of a salt rim. I used kosher salt this time, though because I like how it adds saltiness to the broth when you sip from the glass.
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 4 oz. tomato juice
  • 4 oz. chilled beef bouillon 
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • Tabasco sauce to taste
  • freshly ground pepper to taste
  • lime wedge
Shake all liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Pour into a highball glass rimmed with salt. Grind pepper over the top and garnish with a lime wedge.
