Lusty Mary

Your favorite brunch companion, with a Lusty Monk twist: we’ve replaced the traditional Bloody Mary horseradish with Lusty Monk Original Sin mustard.

This recipe is meant as a base — you’ll want to add your own garnishes, and there are more ways to doll up a Bloody Mary than we can possibly list.

1 quart tomato juice
2 Tbsp Lusty Monk Original Sin mustard
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp celery seed
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp black pepper

Add ingredients to a large pitcher, stir vigorously until blended.

Add ice to a glass, vodka to taste (we would never tell you how much), add the Lusty Mary mix, and top each glass with a squeeze of lime.

Garnish away to your heart’s content. Celery stalk, olives, cherry tomatoes, lime wedge, lemon wedges, baby gherkins, shrimp, (bacon?), spiced salt around the rim, sky’s the limit.

OK, so this isn't a recipe, it's more of a suggestion. Basically a cheese or charcuterie plate is a blank page, and you can fill it in with whatever you want. Find a nice local cheese, some killer charcuterie from your local butcher or gourmet shop, some nuts, some fruit, some crackers, and of course, you'll need mustard. For a ton of ideas, go check out our instagram, where you'll find ideas from some of our favorite food friends.
