My son made some garnished with pickled okra, which was a bit different. I've also seen crisp bacon, or dill pickle spears.

I remember I didn't like it when first tried or even tomatoe juice, but eventually finds it acceptable and then come to liking it I even made it myself regularly at one point. I love mine with extra tabasco, worcestershire sauce and black pepper.

Had one a few weeks ago. Hated it. Drank it all, because I don't waste alcohol, but yeah, it wasn't good to me at all.

^^ Most either love it or hate it and I don't think it's an acquired taste. You have to like tomato/veggie juice to begin with then you will probably like it. I make them often and many times with beer (Michelada).

The standard ingredients would be:

Tomato, Vegetable Juice or Clamato
Worcestershire Sauce
Louisiana Hot Sauce (Crystal, Franks or Tabasco)
Lime Juice
Celery Salt
Black Pepper
Horseradish

Some new ingredients that I recently started using

Sriracha Sauce
Maggi Seasoning
Wasabi Powder

For garnish I like

Dill Pickle
Pickled Vegetables such as Okra, or green beans
Celery
Green Olives

That is a bit different but if you like pickled okra and we do, it would probably be good. I am growing Okra in the garden this summer; will remember that.

For me, Bloody Mary's have to have horse radish, hot sauce, lemon: the pickle might be ok, not sure about that, of course celery and even white onions. Whatever, they are great but I can only eat one, they are just too filling for me.

Now we're talking. I've gotten them with shrimp. Probably some beach place. Meal in a glass.

Gator Ron's... you can taste the horseradish in it.

I made the mistake of buying McClure's BM mix once. Made a Bloody Mary... Oh. My. God. It was like drinking a red pickle juice cocktail. And as much as I hate wasting alcohol, I poured it out. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.
