It was a beautiful sunny day when the owner of the restaurant asked me for the ingredients of the Bloody Mary I made for him. Even though I was in his employ and standing behind the bar, I politely told him, "No, I can't give you the recipe." I explained, "If you like it that much I will make a large batch so every bartender can serve it." Not happy with my answer, he offered to buy the recipe. Again, I politely declined. After I was terminated, I vowed to "show him". Now 25 years later, I present to everyone willing to buy a bottle, my fantastic "Joseph's Virgin Mary"!! I'm Joseph, by the way. I hope you enjoy it.
Best Wishes from the temporarily unemployed bartender,
Joseph A. Rebecco, Jr.
