Buddy's Bloody Mary

This is a quick and dirty Bloody Mary variation that features more vegetable flavors from V-8 juice. I've modified it further with a pickle, celery and olives. It doesn't really call for a garnish. The interesting instructions for the drink seem to focus on seasoning the ice cubes first before straining the drink into the glass.
  • 2 oz. vodka (Smirnoff 57 used)
  • 6 oz. V-8 juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • celery salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. horseradish 
  • several dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • several dashes Tabasco sauce
  • lime wedge or assorted vegetable garnishes
Combine vodka, lime juice, V-8 juice, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and horseradish in a shaker with ice and shake. Fill a highball glass with ice and add celery salt and black pepper to create seasoned ice. Strain liquid mixture into the glass and garnish at will.
