About The Elixir Bloody Mary Cocktail

San Francisco bartender and Liquor.com advisory board member H. Joseph Ehrmann says this is the world’s best Bloody Mary recipe.

Ingredients in The Elixir Bloody Mary Cocktail

Old Bay Seasoning
1 tsp
Dried dill
1 tsp
Ground white pepper
1 tsp
Celery salt
2 dashes
Worcestershire sauce
2 dashes
Tabasco Sauce
.5 oz
Elixir Juice (a mixture of olive brine, dill pickle brine and various other pickle brines)
Lemon wedge\'s juice
1 tsp
Prepared horseradish
4 oz
Tomato juice


How to make The Elixir Bloody Mary Cocktail

Coat the rim of a pint glass with Old Bay Seasoning.

Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice.

Shake lightly—you want to mix the ingredients without melting too much of the ice—and pour (unstrained) into the prepared glass.

Garnish with a kosher dill pickle spear and a cooked slice of thick-cut bacon.

Don't use a straw; drink from the rim in order to get a little of the Old Bay with each sip.

    Wow! I just made this and as I suspected the measure for the dill, white pepper and celery salt is way off. I suspect that you really only want to use 1/4 teaspoon of each of these for a 6 oz of drink, instead of the 1 teaspoon listed. I quadrupled the rest of the ingredients and it is a pretty good tasting Bloody Mary.
