This is my runner-up for best Bloody Mary, a hearty drink with a hint of the sea. Serves one.
Dried rosebuds, fresh mint, lime and champagne combine to make this beautiful and delicious beverage for a festive occasion.
This vampire-friendly cocktail uses strawberry or raspberry puree to add streams of "blood" down the sides of the glass.
