In my opinion,
the Bloody Mary is the perfect breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, going out cocktail.
It's great any time of the day or night.
It's got to be spicy, ice cold, and full of groceries.
If you are from Louisiana, you know what I mean...
but if you aren't,
it means that I like mine full of delicious garnishes.
My favorites are jalapeno stuffed olives, pickled okra, pickled green beans, and pepperoncini.
Sometimes I even add cucumbers and celery,
but only if I'm trying to be healthy.
(That's a joke.)
This recipe is pretty darn spicy, so adjust to taste.
If you want to kick it up a notch though, try jalapeno infused vodka.
(makes 4 drinks)
2 cups tomato juice
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Tabasco
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup vodka
In a medium pitcher, mix all ingredients. Pour into chilled glasses and garnish as desired.
(I used cajun seasonings -Tony's and lemon juice for the rim.)
