According to Tabasco.com when a bartender at Harry's New York Bar in Paris, mixed equal parts tomato juice and vodka, he had no idea his concoction would become world famous. According to the bartender, "one of the boys suggested we call the drink 'Bloody Mary' because it reminded him of the Bucket of Blood Club in Chicago, and a girl there named Mary." Me and Rejeanna don't give a hoot how it came about, we just know we like it for breakfast when we're at the beach, extra spicy, with a stalk of celery. Goes especially good with homemade hot sausage, 'jeanie's' cathead
biscuits, hot sausage gravy, and fried eggs. Well, in all honesty we have about two before we ever get to the breakfast part...laughing and smiling all the way!

1 Tbsp. prepared horseradish-Make my own each spring with Richard Rink
Dash each of Worcestershire and hot sauce
Pinch each of celery salt, dill & pepper
3 Tbsp. vodka
2/3 cup of Clamato juice
1 pepperoncino

Combine horseradish with dashes and pinches in a glass. Fill with ice. Add vodka and Clamato; stir well. Garnish with pepperoncino. Serves 1

“We figured we'd have the world's largest Bloody Mary on a morning when people have the world's largest hangovers.”~ Paul McIlhenny
