Historically, the ritual encouraged young women to walk up a flight of stairs backwards while holding a candle and a hand mirror, in a darkened house. As they gazed into the mirror, they were supposed to be able to catch a view of their future husband’s face. There was, however, a chance that they would see a skull (or the face of the Grim Reaper) instead, indicating that they were destined to die before they would have the chance to marry. Not our Bloody Mary. Our Bloody Mary will ward off that Grim Reaper and possibly that future husband if you have to many here. Our Bloody Mary is jalapeno infused vodka, tomato juice, a little salt, a little pepper and celery.
