Bull Shot Recipe



The Bull Shot recipe is a cocktail which has a lot of variations. One of the variations which can be named is the Bloody Mary. Nevertheless, most of the time people in variations do not introduce any changes at all and the people at large like to gulp down a cocktail which tastes like tomato juice with a certain kind of liquor.  According to a version Les Gruber in the year nineteen hundred and fifty two came up with the idea of creating the cocktail in a club of United States of America known as the Caucus Club.  It was in the year nineteen thirty eight that Les and Sam Gruber opened the London Chop House which went on to become one of the most well known eating places in Detroit.

What is a Bull Shot?

The drink at all usual times is served chilled. It is commonly used to revive the spirits of the people who are feeling rather cold and miserable. The best idea for returning the good spirits is having it warm. It is generally held that the Bull Shot expertly cures a hangover. However, this is not the case.  The cocktail is one that can be savored anytime in the morning, during lunch or in the afternoon. The concept of having a Bull Shot with beef stock is also a tempting and delicious thought.
