The Baker Brothers’ Hangover Cure Recipe
The best hangover cure ever – a spicy Bloody Mary soup complete with a few extra ‘medicinal’ ingredients to give it a real kick.
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 onion, chopped
300-400ml chicken or turkey stock
75ml dry sherry
4 tbsp chilli vodka (or lemon vodka or plain vodka)
1 tbsp honey
1 long red chilli, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 pinch celery salt
1- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, to taste
Tabasco, to taste
Heat a saucepan over a gentle heat, add the olive oil and onion and sweat for 15-20 minutes until really softened and slightly caramelised. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for another minute then add the chopped tomatoes and bring to a simmer.
Add the chicken stock, return to a simmer and cook for a few minutes.
Pass the soup through a mouli legume or blitz in a food blender until smooth and thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Add the honey, sherry, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. Check the seasoning and adjust accordingly.
Heat the vodka in a ladle over the heat until it flames then pour carefully into the tomato soup and stir well to combine.
Serve as you wish.
