½ red onion , very finely sliced
1 tomato , diced
8 thin slices from a long, skinny baguette , toasted
500ml tomato juice
¼ tsp celery salt
1 tsp horseradish sauce
4 tbsp vodka
Vegan Worcestershire sauce
½ lemon , juiced
Mix together all the Bloody Mary ingredients and season, adding Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and lemon juice to taste. Chill.
Peel and finely dice the avocado, mix with the red onion and tomato and a squeeze of lemon juice and season well. Pile the avocado onto the baguette toasts. Serve a shot glass of Bloody Mary (give it a quick stir before you serve it) with two toasts on the side.
I would never have thought of serving a Bloody Mary with a starter but it really worked :D
