One of the best known and loved cocktails, the original bloody Mary recipe called for vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, celery salt, Tabasco, and lemon juice but over the years there have been many variations and all kinds of ways to garnish this ultimate brunch libation. We’re keeping it simple with this recipe, swapping the celery salt for fresh celery stalks as a garnish and adding prepared horseradish and garlic for a punchy drink that is sure to wake you up.
