The Bullshot is sort of like a Bloody Mary—but instead of sweet and savory tomato juice, this salty cocktail is prepared with beef stock. And before you get grossed out just trust us, it is good

During the 1950s and 60s, the Bullshot had something of a cult following: journalists in New York and Los Angeles reported on its coast-to-coast popularity and celebrities like Richard Chamberlain, Joan Crawford, and Malcolm McDowell made it their drink of choice. It fell out of fashion sometime in the late 1970s, but it has been experiencing a bit of a comeback recently. If you have a salty tooth (rather than a sweet tooth), this is your new favorite brunchtime cocktail.
