Friday 5 o’clock Cocktail – Shellshock

I know it doesn’t sound very Christmas(y), but today’s cocktail of the day is Shellshock. Basically this is like a scorching hot Bloody Mary that is made with beer instead of Vodka. Or, if you want to be a real drunk, you can modify it to include Beer AND Vodka. So it’s great at breakfast, before work, under a bridge, basically anywhere – anytime.

There is no celery in this – celery is for pussies who have extra money for vegetation. No, with this drink, all you need is half a beer (it can even be flat beer), some Clamato Juice, Lemon Juice, Tobasco Sauce, and some Cayenne Pepper.

Also, just like a Bloody Mary, this can help knock the wind out of a hangover. I know, I just tried it.

One alteration I would suggest. Some hot sauces are hotter than others. For me, putting an entire ounce of Tabasco Sauce in this thing is way too much. One quarter to one half an ounce is plenty. As they say, you can always add more.

How to make a Shellshock:

Ingredients:
6 oz Clamato Juice (you can substitute Tomato Juice or V8 if that’s what you have)
6 oz Beer (a light lager like a Pilsner would be best, but use what you have)
1 oz Hot Sauce (Probably 1/2 oz is better)
1 dash Lemon Juice
1 pinch Cayenne Pepper
1 pinch Salt

Directions:
Pour clamato juice over salt, pepper and lemon. Then add beer. Stir slowly with a spoon to mix the hotness with the beer, but don’t make the drink fizz too much. Serve in a Pilsner glass.
