World’s Best Bloody Mary

It’s New Years Eve a truly ridiculous holiday that we don’t acknowledge but we do occasionally celebrate New Years Day with a light brunch while watching the Rose Parade.  And nothing says brunch better than a great Bloody Mary.  The derivation of the name of the cocktail is very uncertain with at least three people claiming to have invented it, and the attribution to which “Mary” is even more uncertain.  All the questions aside it is certainly a wonderful cocktail that goes very well at brunch.

Ingredients for Bloody Mary Mix

  1. 2 quarts Tomato juice
  2. Juice of 2 lemons (about 4 ounces)
  3. 4 oz. A-1 sauce
  4. 4 oz. Worcestershire sauce
  5. 2 Tbsp celery salt
  6. 2 Tbsp prepared Horseradish
  7. 2 Tbsp ground black pepper
  8. 5 dashes Tabasco

Directions for World’s Best Bloody Mary

Using a large or double old fashioned glass salt the rim, fill with ice and 1 1/2 oz Vodka.  Fill glass with the mix and garnish with a stalk of celery or a jumbo shrimp.

If you feel the mix isn’t hot enough feel free to add more horseradish or Tabasco.
