HaPPy FrIDaY!!!!

Springtime, is that you?!
Aaaaa, I think it is!
Let's celebrate outside this afternoon with the world's best Bloody Mary! 
The secret ingredient? 
Clamato Juice. 
Trust me. I wouldn't steer you in the wrong direction. This is seriously delicious. 
And yes, for those of you on a Spring diet, this does count as part of a strict juicing regiment.

3 cups of Clamato juice
1 cup of v8 juice
VODKA!.....to your liking.... 
3 tablespoons of hot horseradish
juice from 1/2 a lemon, + lemon for garnish
2 tsp. of worchester sauce
1 tsp. of hot garlic sauce or tabasco (+- to taste)
1 tbsp. celery seed
1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
pinch of kosher salt
splash of olive juice (optional)

Garnish Options:
-A mile of olives (think fun olives too...maybe olives stuffed with jalapenos or garlic?!)
-lemon and/or lime
-celery stalks or leaves
-steamed shrimp
-jalapenos or cherry peppers

Combine all of the ingredients and stir well. Chill by placing in the refrigerator or shake with ice. Adjust taste to your liking and spice level. Garnish and served up in a chilled glass or on the rocks.

This is a fun drink, so adjust the flavors to your liking, but trust me on the Clamato juice. I almost vomited the first time somebody suggested this, but now I wouldn't use anything else. 
A+ Yum. 

Enjoy and Have a Great Weekend Everyone!
Did Somebody Say Croquet?! 


  1. Great drink recipe with a kick there. But Houston we have a problem. I wouldn't know where to buy Clamato juice from. I have never seen anywhere I have shopped.

  2. Dear Amateur Cook,
    You can surprisingly pick up Clamato juice in the juice isle of most grocery stores. If you can't find it, most grocery stores will take order requests. Good luck and enjoy!!
