Ultimate Bloody Mary

Hello, my name is Tom
We all have gifts: I have the gift of cooking. Matthew has the gift of handiwork. My sister—and my sister-in-law—have the gift of shopping, and my brother, Tom, has the gift of making excellent Bloody Marys. Below is, more or less, his secret recipe. I was only able to figure [part] of it out by spying on him.

Tom's secret bloody mary recipe

I don't particularly like my bloody Mary’s super spicy, so you can add more Tabasco or Shirasa to yours, if you prefer. Remember to first run a cut lime around the rim of the glass before you dip it in the celery salt. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS (makes 1 cocktail)

  • celery salt
  • 1 ½ - 2 oz vodka
  • dash ground black pepper
  • dash of salt
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 dash Tabasco® sauce
  • 1 dash of Shirasa chili sauce (optional)
  • 2 to 3 green olives
  • 2 to 3 cocktail onions
  • spoonful of baby clams
  • Clamato juice

Rim a tall glass with celery salt. Fill it with clean ice and the rest of the ingredients. Garnish with a celery stick and lime.
