Much research on the Internet for the perfect recipe resulted in this video on YouTube. The mixologist from Elixir demonstrates how to make the ultimate Bloody Mary. It is the best, with some modifications. Watch the video to get his technique down, but then adjust the seasoning to your tastes.
And yes...I made tiny biscuits to garnish my Bloody. I made simple mini whole wheat biscuits and layered them with prosciutto, cheese, and a little honey.
Perfect Bloody Mary
Old Bay to rim glass
1/2 tsp. dried dill
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. celery salt
2-3 generous dashes of Worcestershire
2-3 generous dashes of Tabasco
1/2 oz. to 1 oz. of pickle/olive brine
2 oz. vodka
Juice of 1/4 lemon
1 heaping tsp. prepared horseradish
4 oz. tomato juice
Build drink in a pint glass, starting with dill and adding ingredients in order. Fill glass with ice, and using a second pint glass, roll drink four times. On the fourth roll, run a piece of lemon around the rim of the empty glass, dip glass rim in Old Bay, and gently pour the cocktail into the rimmed glass. Garnish with whatever you desire! Pickles of all kinds, bacon, biscuits, pizza...the possibilities never end!
