Classic Bloody Mary Cocktail


Step 1Place the tomato juice, vodka, lemon juice, 2 to 3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, dash of tabasco and black pepper in a cocktail shaker. Optionally add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of prepared horseradish. Add a few ice cubes and shake until well combined and the outside of the shaker has frosted.

Step 2Sprinkle some celery salt (or sea salt) on a plate. Cut a wedge of lemon (or lime) and rub it around the edge of a highball glass, then turn the glass upside down and dip into salt so that the salt coats the rim. Set aside while you make the cocktail.

Step 3Pour in the glass filled with more ice and garnish with olives, celery stalk, lemon (or lime) wedge and celery (or parsley) leaves.
