  1. Salt the rim of a tall glass. To do so, pour salt onto a small plate, moisten the rim of the glass on a damp towel and press into the salt. Fill the glass with ice cubes.
  2. In a cocktail mixer full of ice, combine the vodka, vegetable juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Shake vigorously and strain into the glass. Garnish with a stalk of celery and olives stuck onto a toothpick.

I made a pitcher of these. Used a 46oz. of vegetable juice, 1 cup; and a couple of splashes of Vodka, and celery seed. And the rest of the seasonings to taste. [I'd say close to a Tbls.] Very good recipe.

I made this for brunch and it was very good. Only change I made was that I did not add the olives.

Good, reliable formula for a basic Bloody Mary, just waiting for your own personal spin and additions, whether it's horseradish, Clamato, steak seasoning, lemon pepper, Old Bay or beef broth, any number of which we've tried. On this occasion we merely substituted celery salt for the sea salt and threw in a couple of spears of pickled asparagus.

This is the same way we make it at work except we use celery salt around the rim of the glass and I like extra is delicious!!!
