Bloody Mary

30 Oct

Tomato juice and vodka, seasoned with salt, pepper, Tabasco sauce, celery salt, Worcestershire, and lemon, and served with pickled vegetables (Brussels sprouts are good if you can find them).

-By David Strommen


12 oz glass
2 oz Vodka
Sacramento Tomato Juice
4-5 shakes of salt
4-5 shakes of pepper
4 shakes Tabasco sauce
3 shakes celery salt
4-5 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1 lemon wedge
Items for garnishing (your choice – I like pickled Brussels sprouts)


  1. Fill the glass with ice. Add two shots (2 oz total) of Vodka. Fill the rest of the glass with tomato juice, leaving just a little room for seasonings and being able to stir.
  2. Add the salt, pepper, Tabasco sauce, celery salt, Worcestershire sauce and juice squeezed out from lemon wedge. Drop the lemon wedge into the drink and stir well.
  3. Garnish with whatever items you would like. Items Dad often added were pickled Brussels sprouts, pickled garlic mushrooms, pickle spears, or green olives.
