New Years Day is National Bloody Mary Day

Party too heartedly last night at the New Years Eve Party? Many would recommend administering a hearty dose of a Bloody Mary this morning. Far be it from me to prescribe a bit of the dog that bit you. But you can also serve it as an alcohol Mocktail as a zesty tomato juice. Try it anyway you wish. This recipe that I have had for a while creates an entire pitcher worth so you can heal yourself or your entire household. Enjoy and happy 2023!

Bloody Mary Mix



  • 1 (46-ounce) can Sacramento brand tomato juice (5 3/4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon Gold’s Prepared Horseradish
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (from 3 or 4 juicy lemons)
  • 1/2 cup Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons Tabasco hot sauce
  • Ice
  • Vodka, for spiking (optional)
  • Celery ribs, pimento-stuffed olives and lemon wedges, for garnish


  1. Whisk together all the bloody Mary mix ingredients, transfer to a bottle and shake well just before using.
  2. Fill tall glasses with ice; pour the bloody Mary mix on top.
  3. If using the vodka, mix 1/4 cup vodka with 1/2 cup bloody Mary mix in a shaker over ice; shake for 10 hard strokes, strain and pour into each ice-filled glass.
  4. Garnish with a leafy interior rib of celery, a wooden skewer of olives and a lemon wedge.
