The Bloody Mary is one of the all-time classic cocktails, and there’s a surprising amount of mystery surrounding its origin. According to one popular legend, the Bloody Mary was first invented in Paris during the 1920s. A bartender at a bar reportedly combined vodka and tomato juice to create an unusual yet delicious concoction and presented it to an American named Fernand Petiot who called it Bloody Mary – originally as a play on Mary being slang for “a drink with an extra kick.” Although the exact story behind the Bloody Mary’s creation may be unclear, what is certain is that it remains a timeless favorite involving generous amounts of vodka and tomato juice and seasoned to perfection!
- 2-3 oz Vodka
- 4 oz Tomato Juice (or opt-in for a pre-mix)
- 1/2 oz Worcestershire Sauce
- 1/4 oz Fresh horseradish
- Dash of black pepper, celery salt, Sriracha chili sauce
- Garnish with salt, lime wedge, and pickled vegetables
In a tall shaker with ice, combine the horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, Sriracha, lemon zest, celery salt, kosher salt, and ground pepper. Add the tomato juice and stir well. Cover and shake until chilled. Pour the mixture into an ice-filled collins glass. Add the Vodka and stir. Garnish with a lime wedge and your favorite pickled vegetables.
