Mary’s Head

by Betty Bee


In France, a hangover is called quite literally, a wooden head. There are people  out there who don’t know what that feels like and then there are the rest of us. You really do need to be beyond desperate to try this but be assured it does work, just ask any Breton fisherman.

Enough for 1

1 fresh oyster

35 ml vodka

100 ml tomato juice

Juice of half a lemon

Dash  of Worcestershire Sauce

A few drops of Tabasco

Celery salt,pepper

Crushed ice

Open the oyster and place the contents into a glass.

Place the ice, vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces in a jar or shaker and mix well.

Season and pour over the oyster.

Down in one.

Live to fight another day.
