    My first bloody mary was just on my flight home. It was straight Finlandia vodka and V8. I have to say it was pretty delicious and now craving more.

    I love a Bloody Mary with V8! I use Belvedere or Chopin and a few dashes of Tabasco. Nothing else needed. It comes out sweet and delicious. These are smooth and never bitter. Goes down so pleasantly.

    Quite a kick! Prob needs about half the amount of horseradish, but after the first drink, who the heck cares?
