A Bloody Mary is one of the best known cocktails around and is well loved for it's unique savory flavor and spicy kick!

Whilst the Bloody Mary is instantly recognizable, the recipe for the 'perfect' Bloody Mary will almost always vary from bar to bar, and perhaps that is part of it's charm; ingredients can be tweaked, added, and removed to customize the taste to an individual's preference.

So how do you make a great Bloody Mary?

Although some bar-tenders can get a little defensive about the 'correct' way to make a Bloody Mary, the best in the business will always appreciate variety. Having said that, there are a few ingredients a Bloody Mary cannot do without: The basis of the drink is tomato juice, with a double measure of vodka. You add a squeeze of lemon juice to that, and then add a host of condiments into the mix to give it that zingy sting. A balance of Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco, salt and pepper are widely recognized as being the best way to get that kick, with the measurements of each ingredient being primarily down to taste.

Celery salt is often inserted instead of regular salt, and everything from beef stock, piri piri sauce or even wasabi has made an appearance in one recipe or another. One great idea is to add a dash of port to the mix, to give it a real depth in flavor!

The variations on a Bloody Mary really are endless, so the best thing you can do is try out a few different ideas and see what works for you. That way next time you go into a bar and order a Bloody Mary you'll look like a real expert when you know exactly what you're looking for in your drink.

I can give you recipes for both contemporary and classic Bloody Marys. Even though Bloody Mary is usually made with vodka and is basically a spicy tickling cocktail. I will first tell you how make a basic Bloody Mary and then a classic one. You need 1 ½ fluid ounces if vodka, 1 dash lemon juice, 3 fluid ounces of tomato juice, ½ tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and a drop or 2 of Tabasco sauce. Shake all the above mentioned ingredients well with ice and strain into a glass over ice. The ideal glass to serve a Bloody Mary would be an old fashioned medium sized glass. Add salt and pepper to taste and a wedge of lime. Cheers.

The classic Bloody Mary recipe I am about to give is call Arthur's Bloody Mary. You need almost the same ingredients as mentioned above including granulated onion and garlic, dashes of horseradish and celery stick to garnish. Prepare and serve in the same why as mentioned above.

Bloody Mary is a cocktail drink that is served in the morning over ice and is believed to have been invented in the early part of the 20th century in a bar in Paris. The drink appears blood like in color and hence is known as Bloody Mary; the name may also refer to Queen Mary I of England or Mary Tudor (1516-1558) who was also known as Bloody Mary on account of her religious policies in reverting to Roman Catholicism which led to the execution of three hundred protesters.

The drink contains 2 parts Vodka to 3 parts of tomato juice along with salt, pepper about 5 drops of Tabasco and Worcestershire sauces, 1 tsp of celery salt and horse radish along with a dash of lime juice and is served garnished with celery.
