Bloody Marys, and the non-alcoholic Virgin Mary, are frequently served in the morning (as are Mimosas and Screwdrivers), although they are a popular drink later in the day as well. (Traditionally, a Bloody Mary should not be served after six PM.)


  • 3 parts vodka
  • 3 parts tomato juice
  • Ground salt and pepper
  • 6 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
  • 5 drops Tabasco
  • 1 tsp. celery salt
  • 1 tsp. horseradish
  • Dash of lemon or lime juice
  • Dash of orange juice (optional)

May be shaken vigorously or stirred lazily, as desired. Garnish with a celery stalk; a skewer of olives, pickles, carrots, mushrooms, or other vegetables; or even meat (salami, shrimp, etc.) and cheese. Occasionally, pickled asparagus is also used.

For those who need a little bit more of a “kick start” to your day this variation may be even more helpful:
