Story
The cool of the creamy topping perfectly balances the fire of the Mary! Leave the Vodka out for teetotallers – but don’t invite them again! These can be made in advance – even the day before – but don’t put the creamy stuff on until a few hours in advance. Exact quantities are infinitely variable – except the liquid/gelatine balance of course.
