Start things off right with a Hopped-up Mary; this extra-tart Bloody is drinkable all day long, but should be perfect for an evening of football drinking as well.
Combine all ingredients in a chilled mixing glass, rimmed with fine sea salt and stir to mix. Add ice. Stir lightly again to mix. Garnish with a cocktail shrimp, lemon zest, fresh ground pink peppercorn (black pepper can be substituted) and a fennel stalk.
