  1. Prep

    This recipe can be made the night before, allowing you to relax with your guests! Making your own Bloody Mary mix helps to create a fresh and flavorful mix, and remember to garnish these cocktails with pickled vegetables and extra bites to create a truly-loaded drink.

    Combine the Tomato Juice, Lemon and Lime Juice, Horseradish, Worcestershire Sauce, Garlic Powder, Pickle Brine and hot sauce in a blender. Process until smooth. Add the mixture to a glass container and add the Celery Salt and Freshly-ground Black Pepper to taste. Place the container into the refrigerator until thoroughly chilled or overnight.

    When ready to serve, fill each glass with ice. Add 1 ounce of vodka to each glass. Fill the glass with the Bloody Mary mix, leaving room for garnish, and stir well. Get creative and garnish each glass with Safie pickled vegetables: Safie Deli Style Dill Pickle spears, Safie Hot & Zesty Garden Mix, Safie Dill Pickled Beans, Safie Dill Pickled Carrots, Safie Pickled Asparagus, Safie Dill Pickled Okra or Safie Mild Pepperoncini.
