My husband brought this recipe to me from our local paper last weekend. He is a Bloody Mary lover and I wouldn't want this one to get away. Dan'l says this recipe is a winner!! Why make one glass, when you can make a pitcher full? This recipe makes 4-5 pint sized servings.
- 1 quart tomato juice
- 2 cups Clamato juice
- 1 1⁄2 cups vodka
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon wasabi powder
- 1 teaspoon celery salt
- 1⁄2 lemon, juice of
- 1⁄2 lime, juice of
- hot sauce
Rim of the Glass
- 4 tablespoons coarse salt
- 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 stalk celery (optional)
- cucumber, cut in spears (optional)
- lemon slices (optional) or lime slice (optional)
- Combine tomato juice, Clamato juice and vodka in a large pitcher and stir to blend.
- Add remaining ingredients (except hot sauce) and stir with a wooden spoon until all is well blended.
- Taste, then add hot sauce depending on how spicy you like your bloody mary (my husband likes plenty of spice!).
- On a small plate, combine coarse salt and Old Bay seasoning.
- Run a lemon or lime slice around the rim of your glass, then dip the rim into the Old Bay/salt mixture.
- Add ice to your glass (if desired) and pour in the bloody mary mixture.
- Garnish with desired items.
These were stellar! Doubled the recipe and served it at brunch this weekend. Multiple generations were there, so I served it without alcohol, and put a bottle of vodka and garnishes next to it. Very quick and easy to put together, and so yummy that I can see making this regularly.
Excellent recipe and it made serving drinks a breeze at our brunch today. I doubled the recipe making it "as is" except that I put a little more vodka in it. I mixed everything together except the vodka the night before and added the vodka just before the guests arrived. (Loved that!) A doubled recipe filled a gallon pitcher. This recipe has GREAT flavor and isn't all that spicy so I left the Tabasco bottle out for those who wanted to spice it up more. I asked all the guests what they thought of the new recipe and it was thumbs up all around. It's a keeper. Thanks Bev!
OH.... MY.... GOD!!!! This is soooo good! It tastes just like the Bloody Mary's at Ray's Boathouse! Much better than the other blood mary recipes I've tried here!
