Description of the steps to follow for the recipe

The first thing you should do to make this Bloody Mary recipe is to have on hand a mixing container made of glass or metal, whose volume of containment is large enough so that you can pour and mix all the ingredients of the Bloody Mary without inconvenience.

Proceed to fill at least ¾ parts of said pitcher with some ice cubes and move them carefully with the help of chopsticks. In this way, the inside of the container will cool down quickly. 

Then remove the excess water, but keep the cubes inside. Thus, you can pour the 150 milliliters of homemade tomato juice, and immediately mix it with white vodka and 10 milliliters of lemon juice. 

While stirring the preparation, add a pinch of salt, a touch of pepper, a maximum of four drops of Perrins sauce and Tabasco.

Finally, it will remain to serve the cocktail in a glass or cup; but make sure the ice cubes don’t leak. Then decorate the drink with a slice of lemon and a sprig of parsley.

As you can see, the Bloody Mary is a quick cocktail to prepare, so you will only need a few minutes to mix the ingredients, pour the drink into a glass and decorate it. Thus, your palate will enjoy an excellent taste experience.

If you are wondering about the type of glass that is best suited to serve this delicious cocktail, you should know that it is recommended to use a tall glass, since it will allow the liquid to maintain its homogeneity and be properly tasted until the last sip.

An essential aspect to determine the final flavor of the preparation is to choose the best possible quality ingredients. This is much more important when it comes to liqueurs, since you can find vodka in very different presentations, so you should opt for a high-purity option with a reliable production process and with less presence of any type of additives.

On the other hand, if you want to taste a Bloody Mary without alcohol, you will only have to substitute the vodka for the same amount of tomato juice and follow the procedure described above. In this way, you can have a pleasant moment tasting this delicious drink made by yourself.
