2-3 oz vodka
1 oz Demitri’s Bloody Mary seasoning mix
Squeeze of fresh lime
V8 Vegetable Juice or tomato juice
Celery stalk
Your favorite Bloody Mary garnishes


  • Fill the glass half of a Boston-style cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Add vodka, Demitri’s seasoning mix, and lime juice.
  • Top with V8 or tomato juice.
  • Join the glass with the metal half of the Boston shaker and shake briskly for 10-15 seconds.
  • Fill a pint glass with ice.
  • Strain the contents of the shaker into the pint glass.  Garnish with celery stalk (and other garnishes,if desired; see below for suggestions) and serve.

Bartender’s hints:  To really dress up your Bloody Mary, moisten the rim of your serving glass with lime juice and dip it into a salt and pepper mixture before filling it with ice.  And while a stalk of celery (with leaves still attached, if possible) is almost mandatory in a Bloody Mary, many additional garnishes are popular:  Green or black olives, dill pickle spears, jalapeños, spiced beans, pickled asparagus, shrimp, a crispy strip of thick-sliced bacon, cherry tomatoes, peperoncinis, even beef jerky. Experiment and enjoy!
