I am the OG brunch glutton and – since reaching legal drinking age – something of a Bloody Mary connoisseur, to boot. When Ketel One asked if I wanted to participate in their World Class Brunch project, I could hardly miss out.
Come brunching hour, my American half makes a beeline towards visually-pleasing pancake options while my British half makes a meticulous habit of Bloody Mary specificity. A bizarre combination, on first impression, but a combination that has resulted in the curation of not only the best Bloody Mary in the world but delicious pink (!!) pancakes that are actually good for you.
The Perfect Bloody Mary Recipe
(One serving – multiply as necessary)
1 shot (50ml) of Ketel One vodka
1 tsp sriracha
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp cream sherry
Fill with fresh tomato juice
Sprinkle of celery salt
Sprinkle of fresh ground chilli pepper
Celery, to serve
The Perfect Healthy Pancakes Recipe
(Makes four small pancakes)
1 tbsp organic unsalted butter
1 medium-large banana
Natural pink food colouring (optional)
Pure maple syrup (optional, I prefer them without)
1. Warm butter over medium heat in a frying pan.
2. Blend the banana until smooth. Add the eggs and food colouring slowly and blend until combined (5 seconds or less – you don’t want to start to heat the eggs).
3. Pour the mixture into the pan in pancake-sized amounts. Cook each pancake for 30 seconds on each side.
4. Serve with your Bloody Mary and enjoy!
