Next Morning Cocktail: Gazpacho Bloody Mary

 Gazpacho Bloody Mary by Sam Henderson of Today's Nest

Ah, yes... the morning after. 
You've had a lovely evening and perhaps a bit of al fresco dining to include a bright, delicious gazpacho... and maybe a few (or a few too many) drinks. Hopefully, you've saved some gazpacho for the morning after brunch.

Gazpacho is the perfect base for a lively bloody mary. The fresh vegetables work perfectly with the robust flavors of Worcestershire, horseradish, and hot sauce to update the classic.
