The Bloody Mary is in a class by itself. Here is my version — with a dark past.
2 shots premium Vodka
1 4oz. can Sacramento® tomato juice
Dash of Lea & Perrins® Worchestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. Silver Spring® prepared horseradish
1 drop liquid smoke hickory seasoning
Dash of Tabasco® sauce
Dash of fresh-squeezed lemon juice
Large rock glass
Garnish: garlic-stuffed olives, celery stalk
Place enough ice in the rock glass to chill the drink sufficiently, but allowing the contents to be shaken when filled.
Add the other ingredients. Place a sheet of Saran Wrap over the glass, seal tightly and shake vigorously. Remove the plastic wrap and garnish with your choice of vegetables.
For a Clam Digger, substitute Clamato juice for the tomato juice.
