• 1 cup Vegetable Juice (See notes below)
  • 1 tsp Shinedown Symptom Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Pickle Juice
  • 1 tsp Clam Juice or Clamato
  • 1 tsp Lime or Lemon Juice
  • 1-2 tsp Prepared Horseradish
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Celery Seed
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh Ground Black Peppe
  • 1-2 oz Vodka, Gin, or Tequila


  • Old Bay seasoning or Tajin
  • Celery sticks
  • Pickled veggies
  • Bacon


  1. Mix together the first nine ingredients in a shaker, measuring cup, Viking drinking horn, or other vessel.
  2. Grab your favorite glass (mine is a mason jar) and rim it with Old Bay or Tajin. To rim a glass, dip the lip of it in water or lime juice, then dip it in the spice mixture to allow it to stick to the glass.
  3. Fill the glass with a liberal amount of ice. Nobody wants a warm Bloody Mary. Fill the glass with your drink mix and enjoy!
  4. When it comes to garnishes, add what you like. There are no hard and fast rules. This isn’t a soufflé or a proper Old Fashion, so have fun with it. You can use your favorite spice mix to rim the glass, use the mix minus the alcohol and combine it with a nice lager beer to make a killer michelada, or just leave the alcohol out completely and enjoy a nonalcoholic drink.

Notes: If tomatoes are not in season, I prefer to use R.W. Knudsen Family Low Sodium Organic Non GMO Very Veggie juice. When tomatoes are in season I highly recommend making your own vegetable juice. Bobby Flay has a great recipe online as well as the website “Fork in The Road”.
