Bloody Mary

Shake all ingredients well with ice. Strain into a tall or squat 8 oz glass.

This is the final Weekend Cookbook Challenge! The theme is Love and the deadline is March 15. Send you posts to me at iliketocook AT shaw DOT ca.

Sara setting and company change everything it seems to me.
Clamato juice in a bloody mary sounds excellent to me.

I love a good Bloody Mary but only sometimes and then if it isn't really good which often they're not I'm disappointed. There's a company in the UK that do a very good Bloody Mary which you can get in most pubs now. Their website has some interesting stuff including a huge list of ingredients with lots of different spices

I do think location and company play a big part in our memory of good and bad tasting food and drinks.

I didn't realize that Caesars were a Canadian thing. They really are delish! I like a little horseradish in mine.
Love the cocktail book!

I bet the difference was on the ship they didn't use tomato juice, they used V-8 juice (a mix of 8 different vegetables, including parsley). The difference between that and straight tomato juice is night and day. Try it again with the V-8.
