Chris’ Bloody Mary


Makes 1 serving


  • 2 – 3 ice cubes
  • 6 oz V8┬« Original vegetable juice
  • 1.5 oz vodka
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Tabasco┬« sauce
  • 1 pinch of salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 celery stalk


Start with either a highball or an old-fashioned glass. Add ice and vodka. Add V8 juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco sauce. Optionally, add dash of salt and/or black pepper. Stir.

At this point it’s ready to serve; however, some people like to add a garden of garnishes like celery or bacon or olives.

I usually buy 12 oz bottles of V8 juice and use half a bottle for 1 drink.
