Important Info: How To Make The *Perfect* Bloody Mary

A perfect Bloody Mary is essential to a delicious brunch...or to a horrible hangover. Unfortunately, not all Bloody Mary's are created equally. This recipe, however, won't disappoint.


  • 4 oz tomato juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 2-4 dashes Tabasco (depending on how spicy you like things)
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • Juice of one lemon wedge
  • 2 oz vodka


  1. Fill glass with ice cubes and set aside.
  2. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker** + more ice and shake.
  3. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.
  4. Strain*** into your ice filled glass and garnish with a celery stalk and lemon wedge.

** If you don't have a cocktail shaker, everything can be mixed together in a large glass with a long spoon.
*** I actually prefer my Bloody Mary with a little texture, so straining can be a personal preference.
