Daddy’s Bloody Marys

Serves 6
Hands-On: 10 minutes
Total: 10 minutes

4 cups vegetable juice
3⁄4 cup fresh lime juice (from 7 limes)
1⁄4 cup prepared horseradish
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1⁄2 cups (12 oz.) vodka
1 teaspoon celery salt
Lime wedges
Celery stalks
Pickled okra spears
Spicy pickled green beans

Combine the vegetable juice, lime juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a pitcher. Stir in the vodka just before serving. Sprinkle the celery salt on a small plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of each glass; invert glasses onto celery salt so salt adheres to rim of glasses. Fill each glass with ice and about 1 cup vegetable juice mixture. Garnish with the celery stalks, pickled okra spears, and spicy green beans.
