Essential Drink for the Holidays...Hell, any celebration!

 Recipe can be cut in half very easily…

2 large cans (46oz.) Tomato Juice (just the basic Campbell’s Tomato Juice)
1 Ten oz. bottle Worcestershire Sauce
1 Ten oz. bottle A-1
10 shakes Tabasco (to taste)
10 shakes Celery Salt
1 tsp. Horseradish (to taste)
Fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
Juice of ¼ fresh lemon and lime (to taste)

In a one gallon container, shake/stir all ingredients listed above until well mixed.  Serve over ice with your choice of accompaniments:
- Pickled Asparagus
- Celery stalks
- Stuffed green olives- bleu cheese, pimentos, garlic, etc.
- Cooked Bacon
- Lemon wedge
- Lime wedge
- Whatever else sounds good…

This mix is very good with regular Vodka, but goes great with citrus or pepper Vodka as well.
You can also add other spirits for a good twist:
Gin – Gin Mary
Tequila – Tequila Maria
Jameson – Mary Bloody Mary (ode to U2)

V8 – Virgin Mary

I was telling a friend about this drink and realized it was not on here so HAD to include it!
Whether you drink or not, this is a staple at any brunch, weekend breakfast or celebration!
