    "A more interesting cousin to the better known Bloody Mary, a Red Snapper swaps out the vodka for gin. This gives more flavour and complexity to the drink, and balances nicely with the tomato juice.

    "A firm favourite for soothing the soul (and your hangover), the Red Snapper, or as it's known as fondly at Meatmission, Yianni's Breakfast, is a hearty drink that will give you strength for the day ahead. After you've had one of these it's hard to switch back to vodka."
