Think of it as a sort of 'Hair of the Irish Wolf Hound'...
The Theatre of Food is a fantastic stage down at Electric Picnic where all things culinary are cooked, imbibed, dissected, debated and discussed. Loads of exceptionally well known chefs will be doing demos, Ireland's leading food and drink media will be hitting the stage to do some great talks and a couple of booze hounds such as myself will be at hand to lash out the drinks.
On Saturday at noon, I'll be hosting a demo called, "Hangover Causes & Cures From Around The World". I'll be handing out samples of drinks from countries such as Kazakstan and China to explore how people cause their hangovers. And then we'll be tasting samples of how they cure their hangovers from these respective countries, whether they may be edible treats or more bolts of liquor. As I am want to say,"For every action, there's a reaction. For hangover cause, there's always a cure."
And the first drink I'll be making on the day will be an Irish take on the Bloody Mary, one that we like to call the Bloody Mary. A local twist on the world's best hangover cure. In fact, the first 25 people in the tent will be getting a free Bloody Molly upon arrival!
Ingredients: serves 5
- 250 ML JAMESON
- 35 ML DRY SHERRY (compliments the Jameson very well and gives the drink depth)
- 800 ML OF TOMATO JUICE
- 2 TABLESPOONS OF WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE
- 1 TEASPOON OF COARSELY GROUND BLACK PEPPER
- 1 TABLESPOON OF HORSERADISH SAUCE
- 1/2 TEASPOONS OF TABASCO SAUCE
- 1 TABLESPOON OF CASTER SUGAR
- ½ TEASPOON OF CELERY SALT
- CELERY, CHERRY TOMATOES, LEMON AND COOKED PRAWNS FOR GARNISHING
Place Jameson, sherry, tomato juice, Worcestershire, horseradish, pepper, celery salt and Tabasco in a jug and use a soup blender to combine all the ingredients. Blitz for about twenty seconds. Then add in some ice and stir with a spoon to chill it all down. For each serving, place some ice in a long glass and pour in the drink. Garnish each drink by taking a bamboo skewer and placing a celery slice, a cherry tomato and a cooked prawn on it, and then place the skewer in the drink along with a lemon slice.
Oisin will be making the cocktail live on the Tom Dunne Show, tonight from 10pm
