For no other reason than the fact that we like him and love Bloodies, Grub Street asked Robert Newton, chef and co-owner of Seersucker in Carroll Gardens, for his best Bloody Mary recipe. He gave Grub three options, all of which are offered anytime at the restaurant, and especially at their 2nd Annual New Year’s Day Southern Brunch this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Classic Bloody Mary
"This is made with our own housemade mix Long Island potato vodka, and it’s seasoned with a mix of spices and served with a housemade pickle garnish, in a glass rimmed with a mixture of our signature Seersucker Spice and salt."
"This one really packs a punch — it’s our classic bloody kicked up with shrimp stock and a pickled crawfish."
The Whiskey Mary
"For those who really need a little hair of the dog, since it’s mixed with Glen Thunder corn whiskey, which is made from a mash of at least 80 percent corn, giving this drink a toasty, caramelized twist."
