Back in the day, my boyfriend (now husband) and I used to invite my neighbors and good friends over every Sunday for Bloody Marys. Occasionally, we would have several and a martini too.
Those days are over but a great Bloody Mary can be hard to find unless you are at home.
This is my version--everything is to taste so no real amounts.
Start with an iced glass and a healthy (1 1/2 to 2 oz.) shot of vodka.
I sprinkle celery salt, Old Bay seasoning, black pepper- freshly ground, and an optional drop of Tabasco onto the ice.
I then dribble in Worchestershire sauce, only Lea and Perrins for me, and finish off with V8 juice. I use it because many tomato juice brands are sweetened lightly and I don't like that.
Add a celery stalk and a wedge of lime if you like.
