Drink Essentials: On the Wild Side Bloody Mary Mix
Andy Anderson !
The heat is controlled by the horseradish, tabasco sauce, and the black pepper. If you like to calm it down a bit, work with those three ingredients.
I have been making this mix for a long time, and it is always a hit with the spicy/hot group.
So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
22 oztomato juice, not v8, just plain old tomato juice
1 ozbrine from a bottle of olives

1/2 tspcelery seed

Do not confuse prepared horseradish, with the creamy horseradish sauce varieties. Prepared horseradish is basically grated horseradish, stored in a jar with white vinegar and some salt. We want heat in this mix and those creamy varieties just do not deliver.
FYI: My favorite brand is Bubbies.
- Worcestershire Sauce
If you like the taste of this condiment, but do not like the fact that it is made with anchovies, here is a recipe that taste like Worcestershire, but without the fish.
