Clamato Bloody Mary
A true bloody mary should be all about the flavor and the toppings. Clamato Juice does a great job as a base for the bloody mary- not too thick, not too tomato-y, but it also pairs nicely with the vodka and spice. I believe it can also be called a Caesar Bloody Mary, depending on the region in which you live.
Pickles (lots of pickled vegetables) are the best toppings for a bloody mary. Try a pickled Okra in your bloody mary and you’ll never have it any other way! Trust me- you will not want to miss out on pickled Okra– it’s worth if for the tiny pickle juice you get in every bite, before we even start talking amazing flavor.
This recipe has a minimal amount of prepared horseradish, (this is my absolute favorite horseradish to buy because it does actually pack some heat!) but feel free to add more depending on your spice tolerance levels. The Chipotle Tabasco doesn’t add much heat, but rather a nice smokey undertone to the drink, so I would recommend leaving that in there, even if you’re adverse to spice.
