“If there ever was a perfect way to top a bloody Mary this vitamin-packed cocktail would be at the top of the list, with or without the booze. Make mine a double, shrimp that is.”

Prep time: 5 minutes

Garnish time: 30 seconds

Ingredients:

  • 22 ounces V8 or clamata juice
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¾ tsp shrimp consume
  • 1 teaspoon horseradish
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 ounce pickle juice
  • 1/2/ ounce Worcestershire sauce
  • ¾  ounce lime juice
  • 5 dashes Tabasco
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 ounces vodka, very optional (this drink can stand alone for breakfast or lunch)
  • Ice cubes
  • 4 deveined and boiled jumbo shrimp.  The best way to boil the shrimp is to boil 4 cups water together with ½ ounce dry white wine or a very good cognac, also add a good squeeze of lime juice and a dash of salt and pepper. (Some chefs have been known to boil their shrimp in white wine, or any kind of fish or animal stock which just takes it to the next level )Add the shrimp to the boiling water and boil for 3 minutes, not a second longer, remove and dunk into a medium sized bowl filled with ice water, this stops the cooking process and also leaves the middle slightly nice and pink.

Preparation

  1. Add all the ingredients to a shaker filled with ice or a large glass jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake for 30 seconds.  Fill two tall collings glasses with ice and divide the Bloody Mary between the glasses. Garnish each drink with a slice of lime, 2 shrimp and a straw.
