Andrea’s Bloody Marys

on March 19, 2010

Time for the weekend yet again! Hooray! Nobody ever really thinks about drinking too much but we’ve all done it and regretted it the next morning. Especially as we get older! It seems like it takes longer to recover the next day! Well my recipe for Bloody Marys will help with that fuzzy hangover feeling the next morning, or afternoon. Friends and family have laughed at us when we insist on making bloody marys to help with a hangover. But after just one drink the fog has lifted from the brain and you start to feel human again. It really works! I always make a large pitcher of these because they are so good and will last a while even if you don’t drink them all the same day. I also like to garnish with celery and pickled green beans. I first tried the green bean garnish when we were in New Orleans a few years ago.  My measurements are approximate as I never really measure when I make these. Give it a try! This recipe will make about 6 drinks depending on the size of your glasses, sometimes more. It’s not an exact science so have fun experimenting!

INGREDIENTS:

1 bottle of Spicy V8 vegetable juice

1 cup citron vodka (plain is fine if you don’t have citron)

juice of  1 lime

juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (I use Spicy Tabasco Worcestershire)

1-2 tsp celery salt

2 heaping tablespoons prepared horseradish (NOT the sauce)

Few dashes of garlic Tabasco sauce

celery stalks (washed and trimmed, with or without the leaves) for garnish

pickled green beans for garnish (they come in a jar)

green olives w/pimento for garnish

sliced lemon and lime for garnish

seasoned salt for rims of glasses (I use Spicy Tabasco Salt)

Ice

Large pitcher

Short or tall glasses

DIRECTIONS:

1. Put enough ice in bottom of pitcher to cover about 1/4 of the pitcher. Add the V8, vodka, lime and lemon juices, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, horseradish, and Tabasco sauce to the pitcher. You can put cut up pieces of lemon and limes in as well. Stir well.

2. With a little lemon or lime juice rim the glasses. Place the seasoned salt on a flat plate, just enough for the rims of the glasses. Then dip the glasses into the salt so the edges are covered to your liking. Add ice to the glasses. (4-5 cubes is good or more if you like)

3. Add the bloody mary mix to the glasses and put in a celery stalk and green bean. Put an olive on a toothpick and place on top of drink. Garnish glass with a lime or lemon slice. Pop in a straw and you’re good to go!


** Many of the seasonings I use are from the Tabasco company. The spicy salt and Worcestershire sauce I have only found on their website so far. The stores don’t seem to carry the items yet. The green beans can be found almost anywhere, just keep an eye open. If the horseradish is too much for you just add less. The V8 is great because you get your veggies this way too! It’s a medicinal drink!
