The Lips by Marc Wilkinson

A simple Bloody Mary style in an imaginative lips that is sprayed with vodka, just before serving. This recipe uses the Adande refrigeration system to deliver the dish.

CHEFS NOTES
The ‘Lips’ are based on the classic Virgin Mary cocktail, while the shape was inspired by a visit to the stimulating Dali Museum in Figueres, it is served as an opening snack to be eaten with fingers.
The vodka mist offers the option to convert the Virgin Mary to a Bloody Mary. Not only does this add a touch of theatre, but adding the vodka after has two main benefits, firstly the lips freeze better as vodka will act as an antifreeze, and secondly teetotal and pregnant guests can still enjoy.
A spray can be made with Tabasco syrup to really make those hot lips!
