There are so many different ways to make a Bloody Mary cocktail. I've found that the more work you put into it, the better it tastes. There are pre-mixes that you can pour over ice, but you might not get the fresh taste of making it from scratch. Here is a simple recipe for the "Best Bloody Mary Evah!"
What you need:
1-1.5 oz of Vodka
Glass of tomato juice
1 dash of salt
1 dash of ground pepper
1 dash of Tabasco sauce
2-4 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
lime and lemon wedges
3 stuffed olives
1/8 tsp. of Horseradish (pure, never creamed)
How to make it:
1. Fill the highball glass with ice, pour in vodka and tomato juice.
2. Add ground pepper, salt, tabasco sauce, worcestershire sauce, and horseradish to glass. Stir well.
3. Garnish glass with a lemon and lime wedge, a celery stalk, and 3 stuffed olives.
