What You'll Do
A scientist once declared the bloody mary to be the world's most complex cocktail, but the secrets to this classic breakfast drink are within reach. Gillian Fitzgerald, co-owner of Virgil's Sea Room, and Kelly McVicker, owner of McVicker Pickles, teach you and your group how to make a killer bloody mary from scratch during this hands-on workshop. The two also talk about their areas of expertise: Gillian on the bar business, and Kelly on the pickling process. As an added bonus, participants can reap the benefits of pickle brine, which is commonly regarded as a cure for hangovers.

Founder, McVicker Pickles
Kelly McVicker discovered the fine (and yummy) art of pickling the old-fashioned way: through her grandmothers. When she moved to San Francisco, she perfected her traditional recipes, and her innovative pickle and mustard blends went on to win first place in three categories at the 2012 Eat Real Festival. Today, Kelly shares her passion for canning, preserving, and pickling through teaching workshops (including a TEDx talk), running the website The Can Can Girls along with her childhood best friend Heidi Brown, and leading operations at her company, McVicker Pickles.
