Homemade Bloody Mary Drink

About This Bloody Mary Drink

This was over a decade in the making of this final solid classic remake. There are tons of different versions out there. Asking bartenders what they put in it over the years showed there were a lot of differences from coast to coast. The quantities of each ingredient took the most time, including the gathering of opinions.
