The origin of the Bloody Mary is somewhat disputed. One claim states that it was originally created by George Jessel around 1939. The New York Herald, (on December 2, 1939, page 9), printed what is believed to be the first reference to this drink, along with the original recipe: "George Jessel?s newest pick-me-up which is receiving attention from the town?s paragraphers is called a Bloody Mary: half tomato juice, half vodka."
This recipe makes 1 gallon of Bloody Mary's, ready to pour over ice cubes and drink. Only a garnish of celery or pickled asparagus need be added. Don't let the absence of tabasco or horseradish fool you . . you can add those ingredients AFTER you try it, if you feel it necessary. It should aged in the refrigerator for two weeks before opening. (I usually can't wait that long to sample it).
Combine all ingredients in a glass gallon jug. Shake well to mix thoroughly.
Age in refrigerator at least 2 weeks before opening. Shake daily to keep ingredients well mixed.
Pour over ice cubes and garnish with celery stalk or pickled asparagus.

drnicwatson 2y agoIt might be a nice tasting cocktail, but it certainly isn't a "Bloody Mary" without the extra kick that some Tabasco brings

OUSooner 8y agoThis Bloody Mary recipe is easy to make and delicious.I develoiped this recipe over 30 years ago and everyone I serve them to loves them. Initially, I used Tabasco and horseradish but quit using both when I discoverd that somehow, the celery seeds interact with the Worcestershire sauce to add the bite you expect in a good Bloody Mary.
