  1. I always think that a Bloody Mary (or a Virgin Mary) looks like a meal in a glass. A very healthy way to start the year!

    • Yes Tracey, it’s a meal for me too. Definitely worth the wee effort to do it yourself Jen, your anticipation & personal reward is greater then. And I agree with Chef William, cut-back salt in everything is just right for me :)) Great suggestion!
      Now , surely it’s meal time…I’ve just finished my first shift back in the kitchen, it’s a meal in a glass for me!

  2. Great subject for the First Day of the New Year, posted early to catch us late night party goes. I do believe I would cut way back on the salt in the recipe. The tomato juice will already have salt as will the Worcestershire sauce. Perhaps just hand everyone the celery salt and let them add what they like. It sure looks inviting. Perhaps I’ll try one during today’s game. Thanks for sharing

  3. Your recipes sound much better than the “pour out a bit of the famous brand vegetable juice cocktail and add vodka. Will definitely try yours.

  4. Who knew? National Bloody Mary Day. Makes perfect sense:) I’m not a “mix” fan, however, in a pinch, I’ll add that Zing Zang makes a delicious (and simple) alternative…Though, I suppose if you’re lacking the proper 5 minutes to mix your liquor drink..could be a problem:)

    • lol…thanks Kerry, glad we could add to your trivia knowledge :)) cheers Roni xx

  5. This is great, i like eating cheese because it makes every meal seem thicker than the last.
