Wow, it's something else. For me the drink should be as simple as possible.

Vodka and plain tomato juice is the best Bloody mary.

Vodka and V8 here.

Isn't Legal Seafoods one of the best Restaurant Chains around?

Yes, it is. The meal was very good, though expensive. The celery stalk seemed bizarre to me but the drink was fine.

There is a restaurant in NY that serves it with a celery stick, lime wedge and skewered pepperoni. I have made them with tomato juice/V-8, tobasco, worcestershire, horseradish, dash of lime juice and fresh black pepper........... obviously, vodka

I love shrimp in them, too! Man, that sounds good right now!

I'm far from being a tea-totaler but Virgin Marys seem to be a more efficacious thirst quencher. A stiff dose of Tabasco seems to compensate for the flat taste of low sodium V8 and the addition of some lemon juice + perhaps some horse radish makes the drink a dandy accompaniment to chilled boiled shrimp or clams on the half shell.

No salad for me, either. Just V8, Cholula or Tapatío hot sauce and a little salt.

It is a brand of vodka and gin, made in Newfoundland,
the water used is actually from (what else) icebergs!
