2020 felt like a hangover. Wave it goodbye on National Bloody Mary Day. Which happens to be the first day of 2021.
Over the years, Bloody Mary lovers have come up with variations of the mix, such as a Bloody Pirate, which is Bloody Mary with rum replacing the vodka; the Bloody Maria, where the vodka is swapped out for tequila; and the Maria Verde, or A Green Mary, a Bloody Mary that uses gin and tomatillo sauce instead of vodka.
This Bloody Mary recipe here will make a spicy, flavorful vodka cocktail. The recipe will take about five minutes to make, and will serve from eight to 10 drinks with a total of about 35 kcal.
To get your drink just right, you can add as many toppings as you’d like. Go overboard,
For the mix, you’ll need one 48-ounce can of tomato juice, or about six cups; three tablespoons of prepared creamy hot horseradish; three tablespoons worcestershire sauce; 2 1/4 teaspoons celery salt; three teaspoons garlic salt; Tabasco sauce, freshly ground black pepper, and pickle-infused vodka or regular vodka if you prefer.
Mix the tomato juice, horseradish, worcestershire sauce, celery salt, garlic salt and black pepper in a large pitcher. Season with 10 to 15 shakes of Tabasco sauce, or to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
To assemble drinks, mix the celery salt and kosher salt on a small plate. Dip the rim of your glass in a shallow amount of water, then dip into the salt mix and twist. Fill an eight-ounce glass to the top with ice. Add two ounces of pickle-infused vodka or regular vodka then top with Bloody Mary tomato mixture.
Garnish with limes, lemons, celery ribs, blue cheese stuffed olives, bacon strips, pepperoncinis, cooked shrimp, hot sauce, pickles, pickled asparagus or green beans, pickled beets, chunks of cheese, and anything your heart desires.
Be sure to have on hand skewers that are long enough to fit the size of your trimmings.
