There are many variations on the Bloody Mary, one of America’s favorite cocktails.

This one is from Bamboo Sushi in Portland, Oregon.

It’s called Hanako-San, The Bamboo Bloody. While we don’t have the exact recipe, the ingredients are:

  • Tomato juice
  • Vodka
  • Ume plum vinegar
  • Shichimi togarashi spice blend
  • Cold-smoked tomato water
  • Lemon and lime juices
  • Shiso leaf
  •  
    You may not be up for making a copycat, but the garnish is easy enough to pull together (especially if you’re a mixologist at a sushi bar):

  • Small octopus tentacle
  • Sprig of fresh dill
  • Skewer of mango, tuna and beet cubes
  • Salt and pepper side rim (one side of the glass)
  •  
     
    Are you ready to have fun with it?
