The Bull Shot is more of a comfort drink. After all these years the basic recipe hasn’t changed much. The main ingredients: vodka, beef broth, Worcestershire, a dark mustard, tabasco sauce, salt & pepper. A stalk of celery and a wedge of lemon top it off. I use Smirnoff Vodka, because in New York Times taste tests, it always comes up number one.
There are several ways to make a Bull Shot your own--I discovered that by using a dash of liquid smoke, which makes it extra special. If you love ice fishing, skating on a pond, a football game in Buffalo or you're in the Polar Bear Club going for a swim at Coney Island, the Bull Shot will warm your spirit.
BOTH THE BLOODY MARY AND THE BULL SHOT ARE SEASONED TO TASTE.FORE INSTANCE, TOMATO JUICE IN A BLOODY MARY CAN BE ALSO SUBSITUTED WITH CLAMMATO.
