The Ultimate Bloody Mary
Prep time:  10 mins
Total time:  10 mins
Serves: 2

16 oz tomato juice
2 TBS fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 TBS lime juice
1/2 TBS Worcestershire sauce
a few shakes of Tabasco
1/2 of 1 TBS prepared horseradish (not horseradish sauce)
2 teaspoons of pickle juice
1 tsp olive juice
1 tsp pepperoncini juice (optional)
a few shakes black pepper
1/2 a teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning
4-6 ounces of good quality vodka
Garnish ideas: Pickle spear, celery stalk, green olives (plain or stuffed with blue cheese), shrimp, pepperoncini, lemon slice or a lime slice.

Wet the rim of two (16-20 oz) glasses with a piece of fresh lemon. Then dip the glass rims into a tablespoon of Old Bay seasoning (shake it onto a flat dish).
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Fill glasses halfway with ice.
Mix all of the ingredients together in a separate pitcher or container, stir it up well, and then pour mixture into your cocktail shaker, one batch at a time. Give it a good shaking to get it nice and cold, then pour the contents into your prepared glass.
Slide in a pickle spear or stalk of celery, a few Old Bay seasoned shrimp, a couple of big fat olives, and you are good to go. You can also add a lemon and or a lime slice, and if you’re feeling crazy a whole pepperoncini…Yum!


Customize this to your liking…taste and adjust before you pour them into the glasses. If this is too spicy, add a bit more tomato juice; if it is not spicy enough, add more horseradish and/or Tabasco.
