Catering for a large group of friends can be very difficult, because, rightly so, we all have personal preferences. Some like their Bloody Mary’s hot and spicy, others like them rich with a kick. We’ve gone for hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, but include anything you want and let your guests choose.
