Her Lazy blog will show you how to conquer the world without leaving your lounge room or barely lifting a finger.
The Bloody Merry is the ultimate hangover cure. If you’ve woken up from a martini-induced coma feeling like a construction site is going on in your head, this drink will make you feel human again. If you are a big tequila tippler, you can create a Bloody Maria instead. Simply swap out the vodka for tequila. For extra heat you can use jalapeno-infused vodka. This will really get the mercury rising (among other things).
3 oz tomato juice
1 ½ oz vodka
½ oz lemon juice
1 dash of Worcestershire sauce
3 to 4 dashes Tabasco
Ground pepper to taste
Celery stalk, lime or lemon wedge for garnish
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass, then strain into an ice-filled pint glass or a red-wine glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge or a high-pitched giggle.

Nothing spells LUST like chocolate. This Valentine’s Day make it a culinary nuclear assault on his senses and serve him a chocolate martini coupled with a chocolate martini cupcake.
