We all know and love a classic Bloody Mary cocktail - known for its hangover soothing properties, the complex mix of tomato juice, vodka and spices, is a sure fire way to put a spring back in your step. This non-alcoholic version is great for grown up kids who like spicy flavours so they don’t feel left out at the party. Each person can adjust the heat by adding their own Tabasco sauce. It's also an impressive-looking drink so make sure you've got enough to go round all your guests if you're serving it at a party as there's no doubt people will want one when they see it.
