To help you get through Thanksgiving, here, once again, is my personal Bloody Mary recipe. Enjoy.
A very tall glass.
A large handful of ice.
2 ounces of Absolut Peppar vodka.
If you can't find the Peppar on such short notice, then just use plain vodka. But don't forget to add 10 or 12 twists of fresh-cracked pepper.
You could make that three ounces.
Four ounces might be pushing it.
6 to 8 ounces of V-8 vegetable juice.
A stalk of celery.
A dash of celery seed, whole.
A dash or three of Worcestershire sauce.
The juice of half a lime.
Some fresh grated horseradish.
A bare minimum of five drops of Tabasco.
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and mix well. Pour into a tall glass and drink well.
