Make the Perfect Bloody Mary

Feb 12, 2018 12:03PM ● By Staff Writer

For a traditional Bloody Mary, you're always going to have Worcestershire, lemon juice, salt, pepper, celery, tomato juice, horseradish, and Tabasco. But if you're feeling adventurous, it's a drink that can benefit from a little experimentation with spice. It all depends on what you prefer really. That said, it's important to start with a classic Bloody Mary and then move on from there. Here's the best recipe to accomplish that.

Bob's Creole Bloody Mary

  > 1 cup vodka (Bonus Tip: Use Good Vodka)
  > 4-1/2 cups chilled tomato juice
  > 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  > 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  > 4-6 dashes Tabasco hot sauce
  > Celery salt and black pepper
  > And lots of ice to keep it cool

For garnish--use anything that makes you happy: celery stalks, shrimp, crawfish, bacon, okra, and anything else that tastes good to you!
