Hot Mama Bloody Marys

Nothing says brunch like a Bloody Mary.  I'm not sure why; they just seem to go together.  I'm not a huge fan of them, but my husband and father-in-law are, and they're a festive drink with Christmas colors.  Oh, and they also scream Southern so for my Southern Coastal Christmas Brunch, they were a perfect fit!  I should have made a double pitcher of these; they were gone in a hurry! 

1 46-ounce bottle spicy tomato juice (like V8)
1 1/2 cups vodka
juice of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons horseradish
1 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Tobasco, to taste
celery stalks, to garnish

Combine all ingredients, except celery stalks in a large pitcher.  Stir and adjust to taste.

Pour over ice (or not), garnish with a celery stalk, and serve.

Recipe adapted from The Comfort Table, by Katie Lee.


  1. I am going to have to make this when Ben gets home, he LOOOOOOOOVES a good Bloody Mary!

    1. You definitely should; they were sooo good! Enjoy!

  2. Yes, M'AM! I love Bloody Marys, and this recipe sounds like a winner! Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinned! :)

  3. I never thought about it, but you are right. Bloody Marys do seem to be a southern brunch thing. While I've had my share of them, it's one cocktail I've never made at home. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
