Red Snapper Cocktail Recipe


The Red Snapper cocktail is gin’s answer to the Bloody Mary. In my opinion, it works better too – a quick-witted, articulate riposte if you will. It’s a tall, refreshing pick-me-up and a much more civilised hair of the dog remedy than the Corpse Reviver #2. This is a drink that was designed with 11am on Sunday in mind, and as such has been hijacked by the brunch munching masses. Next time you feel the fatigue wrought by too much dancing, try the Red Snapper.


  • 30 ml / 1 oz. Gin
  • 120 ml/ 4 oz. tomato juice
  • 15 ml / ½ oz. lemon juice
  • 3 – 4 dashes of Worchester sauce 
  • 3 – 4 dashes of Tabasco
  • black pepper, celery salt


  1. Use the salt and pepper to rim your glass.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. 
  3. Shake and strain into your glass. 
  4. Add half of a celery stick to garnish.


The drinking of cocktails as a morning drink to revitalize has a long tradition. While today morning consumption is classified as a sign of an advanced alcoholic disease and in particular the re-introduction of alcohol in response to a hangover is not recommended, morning consumption of alcoholic beverages such as cocktails was not uncommon until the late 19th century.
