Full Answer

One popular recipe includes one 48-ounce can of tomato juice, 3 tablespoons of prepared horseradish, 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, 2 1/2 teaspoons of celery salt, 3 teaspoons of garlic salt and a few dashes of black pepper in a large pitcher. Season the liquid with 10 to 15 shakes of Tabasco sauce, and refrigerate the tomato mixture until ready to serve.

To assemble the drinks, mix 1 tablespoon of celery salt and 1 tablespoon of kosher salt on a small plate. Dip the rim of a tall glass in a small amount of water or rub a lime wedge around the rim, then dip and twist the glass into the salt mix. Fill an 8-ounce glass to the top with ice. Add 2 ounces premium vodka to the glass, top with the tomato mixture and garnish the Bloody Mary with a stalk of celery and green olives. Alternatively, garnish the cocktail with blue cheese stuffed olives, bacon strips, cooked shrimp, pepperocinis, limes, lemons, hot sauce, pickled asparagus or green beans.
