"A woman's drink is yet another accessory-a fashion statement, as much as her shoes or her bag," said Leon Hall, noted fashion guru. So what will the fashionable people be drinking this season? Here's a look at some winning recipes from a contest held to find the best tasting original cocktails and smoothies. The beverages can be made with or without alcohol.
In a 12 oz. tumbler filled with ice, combine 5 oz. Daily's Salsa Bloody Mary Mix, 3 oz. Absolut Peppar vodka, a dash of Worcestershire sauce, a splash of Tabasco, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve garnished with a grilled shrimp, a lemon wedge and a celery stalk. Upon delivery of drink, remove tail and drop shrimp into bottom of glass to marinate, squeeze lemon wedge on top and stir with celery.
