While there is not much complexity in mixing vodka and tomato juice, more elaborate versions of the drink have become trademarks of the bartenders who make them. A common garnish is a celery stalk when served in a tall glass, often over ice. A beer chaser may also be served with the Bloody Mary, although this varies from region to region.
- 1 – 1½ oz vodka in a highball glass filled with ice
- fill glass with tomato juice
- 1 dash celery salt
- 1 dash ground black pepper
- 1 dash Tabasco
- 2 – 4 dashes of Lea and Perrin's Worcestershire sauce
- ⅛ tsp horseradish (pure, never creamed)
- dash of lemon or lime juice
- garnish with celery stalk
- May be shaken vigorously or stirred lazily, as desired.
- Garnish with a celery stalk; a skewer of olives, pickles, carrots, garlic, mushrooms, or other vegetables; or even meat or fish (salami, shrimp, etc.) and cheese.
- Occasionally, pickled asparagus spears or pickled beans are also used.
- Prepackaged bloody mary mixes that combine the spicy, non-alcoholic components of a bloody mary are commercially available.
- For a sweeter variant, try a Bloody Mary I.
