Bartenders at Kincaid’s, Minneapolis, prepared this Bloody Mary in the early 1990’s, advertising this recipe and a recipe for my favorite Marguerita (which can be found here as well) on small cards posted on tables throughout the bar. What makes this recipe different and better than a thousand other Bloody Mary cocktails is that it calls for beef broth and horseradish. Great for a cold, clear winter brunch or football gathering. Recommend that one serves this with a snoot (a small glass) of ice-cold beer.
