I have made a lot of Bloody Mary mix in my life; I use to own a bar. If you want to mix it up a bit, I would suggest adding a can of beef broth and 1 tsp. of celery seed. Beefy, hot and spicy!!!!! They love this at the bar on Sundays.

Super easy. Spicy. But it is easy to cool down. A big hit with my family last year Mother's Day. And all through the year. I reduced the pepper and old bay by over 1/2, after following the recipe the first time. I do use low-sodium V8. And let other's add the Vodka, that way the pitcher stays virgin!

Nice recipe that results in a bloody mary with quite a bit of kick. If you like your bloody mary like that, this is the recipe for you. If you like a milder one, not so much. Like the other reviewer stated - very easy to make, which is always a plus!
