1I like my Bloody Marys served in a 12 oz. Old Fashioned Glass. With 1 1/2 to 2 oz. Vodka. But-- Let your personal preference rule as far as glass choice.
2Mix all ingredients together well in a large jar or a pitcher. I use a green antique juice/water jug with lid, so the contents can be pre mixed and kept in the fridge for a few days. You could use Real Lemon in lieu of the Real Lime or both.
3Serve with Ice or without. I prefer mine well chilled without ice. Others prefer the fact that the ice waters down the drink a little after awhile.
4GARNISHES: Celery Stick, Pearl Onions, Small Mushrooms Raw or Pickled, Cheddar or Swiss Cheese cubed to 1/4 inch, Ham slced 1 inch wide and rolled and speared, Hard Salami cubed to 1/4 inch or a 4 to 6 inch Beef Stick or String Cheese Stick. Or a Cherry Tomato or two, or a small chunk of Pickled Herring. Get Creative. If you can Imagine It, it will probably work. How about a Dill Pickle Spear?
5FOR THE RIM: 1. Mix the listed ingredients and store in small jar with lid. 2. Pour a small amount on a plate and wet the glass rim and dip and spin in Mix. After use I let excess Mix dry and place back in jar for later use. Fill glass and add the Garnishes. Enjoy!
6When they are ready. Give me a call.
7NOTE: I at times add in an 8 to 10 oz. can of Tomato Sauce(not paste)for additional thickener and fiber.
8OOOPs! In my original I listed Garlic Salt and Onion Salt for the Rim Mix. It should have been Garlic and Onion Powder. I'm a low salt cook usually. I have corrected it.
