41 Days of Drinks (day 21)

• This is the latest entry in a daily feature that will run through New Year's Eve. To provide it, I combed through all sorts of sources -- my own archives, bar books, distillers' ideas, etc. -- even press releases from breathless PR people seeking to get their clients' products mentioned.

On day 13 of this series, I offered a whole lineup of classic and offbeat Bloody Mary cocktails. Well, we ain't done yet.

In a salute to that posting, as well as yesterday's (day 20) that offered a Chinese New Year cocktail, I selected this concoction from the Bar None website. A bonus: When heated, the mixture also makes a good sauce for various foods.

CHINESE MARY

1½ ounces vodka
3 ounces sweet-and-sour sauce
Dash of lemon juice
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3 drops soy sauce
3 drops Tabasco sauce (optional)
Pineapple (juice or pulp)

Build it like a Bloody Mary, improvising with ingredients until you find your preferred taste and texture. It may be helpful to add extra vodka to thin out the sauce.
