When it comes to that big bit of brunch beverage imbibery known as the "Bloody Mary" I prefer mine with Top Shelf Vodka, V-8, horseradish, worcestershire sauce, celery seed, cracked black pepper, a squeeze of lemon, and for garnish I like a stalk of celery and, what the hell, throw in a couple of olives if you must.
The one thing the dude cannot abide is the addition of hot sauce. BLEEEEEECH! Also these crazy bastages who refuse to put in horseradish, I mean WTF?! So what are your musts and must nots on the "perfect" Bloody Mary? And for the love of Pete, let's not get into the secret "black cardamom" Gary's olde towne tavern recipe!
