Bloody Maria

You will need:

  • 2 Ounces of Silver Tequila (Blanco Tequila)

  • Celery Stalk
  • A Blender

To start this tequila-based Bloody Mary, put your silver tequila, lime juice, garlic, cucumber, Worcestershire, and Tabasco in the blender. Blend it up til it's smooth.

Then pour your drink into an ice-filled glass (a highball glass if you want to look classy, but a red solo cup will do). Add in the tomato juice and stir it well. Then squeeze the lime wedge in the drink and drop it in. Lastly, put your celery stalk in.

And now you've got your hangover cure premade for the hangover you are sure to have tomorrow. Future you will thank you for your preparation.
