Bartenders across the country have mixed signature variations of the iconic bloody mary; from bacon to beetroot, wasabi to whisky, but whatever the extras, it must start with the best possible tomato juice, so we asked the juice supremos at Frobishers, to share their version of perfection

Vodka 50ml
Frobishers Tomato Juice 1 bottle
Worcestershire sauce ½ tsp
