The Bloody Bull
makes one drink

"A classic brunch drink, this version of the recipe comes from Chris Hannah of [New Orleans restaurant] French 75. Pair this with bacon, fried eggs, and toast."

11/2 oz vodka
4 oz Bloody Mary mix
1 oz beef broth
2 olives
1 lemon wedge
2 pickled beans

Roll first three ingredients from mixing glass to highball glass, finishing with the liquid in the highball glass. Add ice and garnish with the remaining ingredients.
