Veggie Cocktail (otherwise known as a Bloody Mary)

Standard


1 small can Spicy V8 Juice (or regular if you don’t like spicy but really why bother if you don’t like spicy)

1 1/2-2 oz Vodka

2 limes (1 cut in half, the other into wedges for garnish)

1/2 tsp. or more, grated horseradish

2-3 dashes Worcestershire Sauce

3-4 drops Tabasco (I used Chipotle Tabasco)

Black pepper and/or cayenne to taste

Celery Salt (mix enough to rim the glass with course salt)

Ice

Garnishes: Celery Stick, Pimento Stuffed Green Olives, and any pickled veggies you like along with a lime or lemon wedge.

Rub cut side of lime on the rim of a glass and dip in celery salt and coarse salt mixed together on a small plate. Add crushed ice and set aside. In another large glass or cocktail mixer, pour V8 juice, squeeze half a lime (or more), add the rest of ingredients except garnish. Stir with a few ice-cubes and pour over ice in salt rimmed glass. Add garnishes and squeeze the lime wedge and then drop on top. This makes one cocktail.
