North Arkansas College’s Bloody Mary
Bloody Mary has been a real hit in North Arkansas College since the 1950s. It's believed that this classic cocktail was named after Queen Mary I Tudor, who treated Protestants with violence during her reign as English queen and committed some of the most ruthless reprisals against them. She received the nickname, Bloody Mary.
It mixes vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, salt, and peppers. While other bloody marys may be spicier, this one will help your day off to the right start with the horseradish and its hot sauce optional ingredient.
Garnish with a piece of celery and bacon in the glass and a skewer of chopped pickles, cherry tomatoes, and green olives, if desired.
