Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The Bloody Mary masterfully balances the lively kick of Tabasco and the umami depth from Worcestershire sauce with the grounding, earthy base of tomato juice. The squeeze of lemon brightens the ensemble, ensuring the vodka doesn't just sit idly by but engages actively with its bolder counterparts, creating a brunch staple that's both invigorating and complex.
