Oh, you've GOTTA have Old Bay in a bloody mary!! Coming from Maryland, it's a necessity for mine. Mmmm... Think I might have to hit a brunch before Christmas shopping on Sunday.

Its been awhile but I make my own and it is apt to have:
tomato juice,
horseradish,
anchovey paste or fish sauce,
celery salt,
Franks red hot sauce,
worcestershire sauce,
of course garnish with a lemon slice or wedge and celery with some leaves but I have used dilly beans as a garnish also.
(I dont remember adding it but sometimes there is a tiny little bit of sweetness and I am not sure what would add that--I am thnking i might try a few drops of Mirin (japanese sweetened wine or just a tiny bit of honey but it is fine without that.)

vodka
tomato juice
fresh ground black pepper
tabasco
worchester sauce
horseradish
(key) old bay seasoning
mix well (not shake)

Similar to mine except I squeeze a lime wedge into the mix. The acidity breaks down the tomato juice and makes it a bit thinner and more drinkable IMHO. I also add a little white wine and red wine. I saw a bartender do that in a famous Manhattan bar that is known for their Bloody Mary's. I can't remember the name of the place.

I used to like them made with V8, Worcestershire sauce (Lea and Perrins, please), celery salt, and black pepper. Dash of hot sauce was nice.

Now I actually prefer it with regular tomato juice instead of V8, but the rest the same.

Major Peter's is my favorite mix. I add a little lime to it to make it just right!

I knew I was forgetting something about the name of the one I like. The Works is one variety of Major Peter's brand, my favorite. They've got a Salsa one too that is good.
