Garnish:

Lemon juice moistened sea salt-coated rim. Garnish with Pepperoni/beer stick, lemon wedge & skewered olive

How to make:

ROLL (rotate rather than shake shaker) and strain into ice-filled glass. Use ice fresh from freezer (rather than ice-machine/ice-well) to fill glass so avoid unwanted dilution.

2 1/4 fl oz Tomato juice
1/3 fl oz Amontillado sherry
1/3 fl oz Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1/4 fl oz Sugar syrup 'rich' (2 sugar to 1 water, 65.0°Brix)

Hazardous ingredients

Worcestershire sauce is potentially hazardous to those with allergy or intolerance.

Vodka is both traditional and works brilliantly as a base to a Bloody Mary but is far too tame for a 'Bit Of An Animal'.
