Nothing is better in the morning the spicy tomato flavor of a Bloody Mary. You can make it as spicy or mild as you want, using both more or less hot sauce and horseradish. Bloody Marys are often garnished with a celery stalk, but many will either use stuffed olives or both. For a non-alcoholic version, try a Virgin Mary using the same recipe without the vodka.
4 oz tomato juice
2 oz vodka
1/4 oz lemon juice
2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated horseradish
3 dashes of Tabasco Sauce
Celery stalks and/or stuffed olives for garnish
1. Pour the liquid ingredients in a Highball glass over ice cubes.
2. Mix well. Add the seasonings to taste.
3. Garnish with a celery stalk or stuffed olives.
Garnishes options are many, try these for something new: Iced shrimp, garlic or blue cheese stuffed olives, peppercini peppers, lemon and line wedges and pickled veggies.
