    probably my favorite mixed drink, right up there with the manhattan, mojito and margarita.

    having bartended at a golf course for a couple of summers, i came up with a couple of tweaks that had me making them by the gallon (not literally, but you get the point). as someone said, clamato is a great beginner, along with V8 (spicy if you like the heat). for the smoky flavor, i used regular and chipotle tobasco. for a bolder flavor, adding a dash of A1 or even heinz 57 does the trick. rather than pickle juice, i’d go with olive juice. i also had fun with the garnishes, stuffing olives with blue cheese and sometimes anchovies or smoked salmon in addition to the traditional celery stick. a piece of chilled shrimp is a nice touch or a freshly shucked oyster, and/or bacon, of course. i finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon and lime and pour into an glass rimmed with a mixture of celery salt and chili powder.

    Bloody Marys are so delicious, and I can’t wait to try your recipe. I love mine with sriracha too!

    I like V8 for my Bloody Mary but it’s a matter of taste. The recipe sounds delish and I can’t wait to try it!

    Try substituting Clamato juice for Tomato juice

    If you are not a big fan of thick tomato juice (like me) a better option is to use clamato juice. It makes for a thinner consistency and in my opinion a better taste. Other items you can add are garlic and Old Bay seasoning.

    I will probably need one of these tomorrow. I bet the bacon with it is awesome!
