Cocktail Friday – Morocco Mary

When I think of a Bloody Mary, I think of ‘the morning after the night before’. This drink is a well known, and much loved hang-over cure. But, it’s also a wonderful choice for brunches, lunches and afternoon teas.

This recipe is a little different from your traditional Bloody Mary and along with Vodka and tomato juice it also incorporates the wonderful fiery North Africian hot red paste, Harissa. This is an exciting twist on a classic drink.


–       75ml Vodka

–       250ml Tomato Juice

–       1 teaspoon Harissa Paste

–       Juice of 2 Limes

–       Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper

–       Ice


1. Mix the harissa paste, lime juice and vodka together till the paste is evenly distributed

2. Add tomato juice and stir to combine

3. Add ice cubes

4. Season with salt and black pepper

5. Garnish with a fresh crispy celery stick

(serves 1-2)
