Life with a family, a career and responsibilities can get crazy busy. Once in a while I need to take a moment just to relax and enjoy the simple things in life. On warm summer days my husband and I love to be near the water. It is so peaceful and relaxing, and my favorite thing to do is sit in the cool breeze with a Bloody Mary in hand. It seems Bloody Mary’s are the drink of choice among many of our friends and family members. Whether you are just making one for yourself or several for a gathering, Bloody Mary’s are quite simple and easy to mix together, hence enjoying the simple things in life.
Howlin’ Bloody Mary
By Lisa Ek
- 2 tsp. Howlin’ Horseradish Dip Mix™ or to taste
- ½ – ¾ cup tomato juice
- 1 ½ oz. vodka
- 1 Tbsp. dill pickle juice
- Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
- Dash of celery salt
- Dash of Seasoned Salt
Combine ingredients; garnish with a stalk of celery, lemon wedges or a dill pickle spear. Makes 1 serving.
- Grind the Howlin’ Horseradish Dip Mix in a spice grinder if you’d like a finer powder. You can use the finer powder to rim the glass, too. Just rub a fresh lemon wedge around the rim of the glass and dip it in the ground powder.
- Try other fun garnishes such as beef sticks, cooked bacon slice or hard boiled egg or olives on a skewer.
- A lemon, lime or pepper-flavored vodka would be delicious in place of the plain vodka.
- A small glass of beer is traditionally (depending on your region) served along with a Bloody Mary as a chaser.
