perfect bloody mary mix


the perfect bloody mary mix with citrusy notes from lemons & limes, spicy hot sauce, punchy horseradish, & savory worcestershire. keep a jar in your fridge at all times for the possibility of the best bloody marys just a few minutes away!



  • 12 C tomato juice (the stuff from the juice aisle at the grocery store is just fine!)
  • juice of 4 lemons (about 1 C of fresh lemon juice)
  • juice of 8 limes (about 1/2 C of fresh lime juice)
  • 1/4 C worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 C hot sauce*
  • 1/4 C fresh horseradish*
  • 1.5 T celery salt
  • 1.5 T kosher salt
  • 1 T pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher & store in fridge until you’re ready to serve. I’d recommend giving it time (a couple hours at least) to let the flavors meld. I’d also recommend just keeping a jar of bloody mary mix in your fridge at all times. It’ll keep in the fridge, sealed, for 2 weeks.


  • *this recipe will give you bloody marys that have a pretty good, but not crazy, level of spice. if you don’t have a taste for spice, cut the hot sauce & horseradish in half. if you love the heat, add a little bit more hot sauce & horseradish, tasting as you go. (you can also throw in some chopped chipotles for some smoky heat…beyond delicious!)
  • **to serve, combine bloody mary mix with 2 oz of vodka (or aquavit) & garnish as you please!
