The Bloody Mary is a common “Hair of the dog” drink, reputed to cure hangovers due to its combination of vegetable base (to settle the stomach), salt (to replenish lost electrolytes) and alcohol (to relieve head and body aches). We think The Beach Hut Bloody Mary is good no matter what the aliment. Although particularly liked during Sunday brunch.
