How about the Ultimate Bloody Mary Recipe?

The ULTIMATE Bloody Mary Recipe. Go big or go home. Get the details at www.jolynneshane.com.

When you are going to indulge in a Bloody, I say, “Go big or go home.” After all, that’s what they are all about, right? Big, explosive flavors.

These Bloody Marys are bursting with flavor and spice, thanks to a horseradish kick and a few splashes of Tabasco, but you can easily customize them to suit your palate.

This is THE Ultimate Bloody Mary Recipe, exploding with flavor and practically a meal in itself. No bloody mary mix required.

I think shrimp lightly dusted with Old Bay seasoning hanging on the glass, in the glass and on the side is a must! But then again, I could eat shrimp for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I think THAT is what I will do for myself this Mother’s Day — a shrimp fest!! With a side of Bloody Mary, lol! Honey…kids…are you listening?

Ingredients
  • 16 oz tomato juice

  • ½- 1 TBS prepared horseradish (not horseradish sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons of pickle juice
  • 1 tsp olive juice
  • 1 tsp pepperoncini juice (optional)

Instructions
  1. Wet the rim of two (16-20 oz) glasses with a piece of fresh lemon. Then dip the glass rims into a tablespoon of Old Bay seasoning (shake it onto a flat dish).
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Fill glasses halfway with ice.
  3. Mix all of the ingredients together in a separate pitcher or container, stir it up well, and then pour mixture into your cocktail shaker, one batch at a time. Give it a good shaking to get it nice and cold, then pour the contents into your prepared glass.
  4. Slide in a pickle spear or stalk of celery, a few Old Bay seasoned shrimp, a couple of big fat olives, and you are good to go. You can also add a lemon and or a lime slice, and if you’re feeling crazy a whole pepperoncini…Yum!
Notes
Customize this to your liking…taste and adjust before you pour them into the glasses. If this is too spicy, add a bit more tomato juice; if it is not spicy enough, add more horseradish and/or Tabasco.
