2 cups tomato juice
1 cup your favorite salsa, we love using our Bacon Salsa in this recipe. It adds a hint of smoke and hickory... but our Ghost Pepper Salsa REALLY kicks it up.
2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. prepared horseradish
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
¼ teaspoon celery salt
vodka, another plug for our friends at Waterford Stillhouse. Their vodka is top notch!
dill our sweet pickles, for garnish, we also have amazing hot bread and butter pickles
tall, leafy celery sticks, for garnish
summer sausage, beef jerky, cheese (Nobel Brothers/Uncle Harry's has a great 5 year cheddar), meat sticks, crispy bacon strips, or chilled shrimp, as desired, for garnish (get your meats from Two Creek Farms in Union Grove)
Green olives, for garnish
In a blender container or food processor bowl, make the Bloody Mary mix by combining tomato juice, salsa, lime juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce and celery salt; cover and blend to desired consistency. Chill well.
To serve, divide the Bloody Mary mix between 4 glasses; add a generous splash of vodka to each one. Into each cocktail, insert a celery stick or two, giving a gentle stir. Add skewered meat and/or shrimp, skewered pickles and olives as garnish. Enjoy!
