UPDATE: OK, I combined - this recipe and another recipe and did use the V-8 and my husband LOVED it. Thanks. This sound really good and I want to try it but actually this is a question - I am snowed in with 16 inches of snow in Washington, DC - all I have is V-8. Any opinions if this will work our not. Thanks.

Ok, this didn't work for me. I thought that the taste was off. It was either the Old Bay or the Dill or both. Sorry.

I used Frank's Red Hot for the hot sauce. Instead of pickles, I added a few whole pickled green beans, anchovy stuffed olives and a celery stick. Husband loved it. This is the recipe I will continue to use. Thanks for sharing your recipe!!

This was an excellent bloody mary! My husband and I are enjoying one right now- thanks for the recipe!

I chose this one because I had all the ingredients on hand. It was very tasty! I used Absolut Pepper because that's the only vodka we had.

It will probably work better if you used tomato sauce and water it down. But, if your snowed in and can't get to the store, use V-8 and go easy on the celery salt and worcestershire. I'm sure it will be fine. Good luck!

This is a great Bloody Mary mix. I agree that the dill adds a great deal of just right flavor--but I do love dill . Also I did not use the seafood seasoning--great without it. This is not overly spicy as when made with V8 juice. I have always preferred a Bloody Mary with plain tomato juice. We made a pitcher and enjoyed another glass! Tastes like MORE!!!

NOW you're talkin! The only one I've seen to throw some kind of dill in there, that's the key ingredient between good bloody mary's and awesome ones!! Thanks for this recipe.
