Kevin's New Orleans Bloody Mary
- 2 ounces Vodka
- 6 ounces V8 Juice (Spicy V8)
- 1 teaspoon Prepared Horseradish
- Celery Salt
- 2 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 dashes Hot Sauce (Tabasco, Crystal or Louisiana Brand)
- Wedge of Fresh Lime
- Wedge of Fresh Lemon
Fill a glass with ice. Pour in about (I stress the word “about”) 2 oz. of vodka. I use Taaka (or Smirnoff), because that’s what the locals drink (or so the advertisement says), it’s cheap, and when you cover it up with all of the seasonings, you couldn’t tell it from Grey Goose.
Next, start adding ingredients. Toss in some celery salt, shake in some Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, hot sauce and using a fork, add some prepared horseradish. Last, squeeze in a lemon and lime wedge and drop them in the drink and fill the rest of the glass with V8 juice. Have an extra big cup ready to roll the drink (roll just means to pour from cup to cup a couple of times to mix the drink).
Finally, add your garnishes. No New Orleans Bloody Mary is complete without spicy green beans. You can use celery stalks, olives, cucumbers or even spicy boiled shrimp to garnish your drink. Do whatever looks pretty. Mine has a spicy green bean, a spear of pickled spicy okra and an onion-stuffed olive.
Note: If you insist on using a mix, my favorite is by Zing Zang.
