About Bloody Mary

Serve in a Bloody Mary Glass
Long a staple at weekend brunches, a Bloody Mary is a cocktail made from vodka, tomato juice and several other spice and flavorings including Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce and horseradish, to name just a few. Celery salt or a stalk of celery are often added. The color of the drink is deep red, hence the name. It has been celebrated in folklore and literature since the 1920s.
