Where the old country meets the Wild West, there’s nothing quite like a Spaghetti Western. Combining the fiery, rustic flavors of Corleone with the smooth western tastes of Wyoming Whiskey, just a sip of this bloody mary inspired cocktail will bring visions of bouncing tumbleweeds, the sounds of hard hooves on dry dirt, and the slow click of a revolver as it’s loaded. Who’s to say that Clint Eastwood wasn’t sipping on many of these Italian Bloody Mary’s while filming “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”?
