Premade mixes make the Bloody Mary cocktail easy, breezy to put together but some lack taste appeal. Pass on the usual quick fix mix and kick ordinary vodka to the curb. Gin gives a swift kick in the pants to the common Bloody Mary with its built in infusion of botanicals filling the drink with extra flavor ‘oomph.’
