Here's what I'm enjoying this morning.
Lori K's Birthday Bloody Mary
This is also very good as a Virgin Mary. Just shake in a little Tabasco until you get the heat you want. If you don't like the hot stuff, cut back the horseradish to 1/4 teaspoon and use regular vodka.
1 can (5.5 ounces) low-sodium V8
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon hot horseradish
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 jigger of Pertsovka pepper flavored vodka
Mix all ingredients well. Serve over ice and add a celery stalk or blanched asparagus spear.
I don't make these very often. My bottle of Pertsovka was bottled in the USSR. But you know what? It hasn't gone bad. ;-)
