Batch Bloody Mary

Batch Bloody Mary
Serves 20 (in a 10 ounce rocks glass filled with ice)

2 t salt
1 T onion powder
1 T celery salt
2 ½ c lemon juice
7 ½ c tomato juice (I like Sacramento, Knudsen, Meijer, or True Goodness organic)
2 T prepared horseradish
2 t Worcestershire sauce
1 T hot sauce (I like Tabasco)
6 c vodka
20 stalks celery, washed, sliced, and ends trimmed
4 lemons, sliced into 8 wedges each


In a glass measuring cup, combine the onion powder, salt, and celery salt. Slowly add in lemon juice, stirring with a whisk to combine in order to avoid lumpy powdered spices in your cocktail! After adding all of the lemon juice, transfer this mixture to a gallon container then add tomato juice, horseradish, Worcestershire, and hot sauce. Shake well. Next, add the vodka and, again, shake well to combine. This cocktail can be made up to one day ahead of when you intend to serve. After poured from the gallon container into a serving pitcher, guests can pour into a highball filled with ice and garnish with one stalk celery and a lemon slice.
