How to Make a Bloody Mary

How to Make a Bloody Mary

All that the Bloody Mary really contains is tomato juice and vodka, the rest is just taste. I love loads of Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, tabasco and celery salt, but the person next to me might hate all that and want something else.

Some love the celery and others don’t want it anywhere near their cocktail. So below I’ve given you the Bloody Mary I adore. Feel free to change it up as you prefer! If you want to leave the spice choices to someone else, then Food 52 make Bloody Mary Spice Mix Sets and you can leave it to them.
