I actually don't drink these very often anymore because I don't really have any other practical use for buying tomato juice. Whenever we go on a flight somewhere though, I always order the "spicy tomato juice", and I'm in heaven for those few minutes that I'm slugging it down.
This week we happened to have tomato juice in the house for another recipe I was making and decided that a Virgin Bloody Mary was absolutely in order. Like my 6 year old self, when Jay saw me drinking it he pointed and demanded that I gave him some, but being the mean parent that I am I convinced my 18 month old that it was icky to save him from the scorched taste buds and tears that were sure to ensue.
1/4 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepepr4 drops Tabasco sauce
Celery Stalk (optional garnish)
Put a handful of ice in a 12oz glass, and fill with tomato juice to the stop, add in the rest of the ingredients, and stir! Your taste buds will be delighted, promise!
