I have been having serious cravings the last few weeks for a really good Bloody Mary. I have always been a fan of this drink, even when I was little and ordered the virgin version. I love anything spicy and I’ve always been a sucker for celery, weird I know. Hands down the best Bloody Mary I’ve ever had was at a hotel in South Lake Tahoe. I only wish I could remember the name of the restaurant! I also loved the Bloody Mary Bar that 75 Chestnut in Beacon Hill would host every Sunday. It was exciting folks, you could mix your own drink.
Now that I live far away from 75 Chestnut and South Lake Tahoe I am looking for a go to recipe that I can whip up at home to sip on a lazy Sunday or when I host guests for brunch. Here is a recipe by Tyler Florence that was extremely well rated. Does anyone else have a good recipe they could share with me???
Combine the lime juice, celery seed, and horseradish in a pitcher. Muddle the mixture with the end of a wooden spoon to blend and break up the celery seeds. Pour in the tomato juice, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce; season with salt and pepper. Stir everything together to combine.
Divide the vodka among 6 tall, chilled glasses filled with ice. Fill the glasses with the bloody mary mix, stick in the celery and cucumber and garnish with the cilantro. Give the bloody mary a good stir and serve.
