I concocted this recipe out of a need for, well, a good stiff drink. And one that had more flavor and zing - less sodium. No need to look like Puff the Magic Dragon the next morning. Change up the heat with as much or as little Tabasco as you want. But don't forget the lime! —vivisue
Suzi's Friend Mary
Low Sodium Tomato Juice
Mr. & Mrs. T's Bloody Mary Mix (regular, not Bold and Spicy)
Tabasco (in my case, 1 tablespoon)
Suzi's Friend Mary Spice Mix (see below)
Rim glass with salt, if you prefer. I’m salty enough, so I do without. Fill glass with ice and mix all ingredients together in glass. Adjust the heat with the Tabasco, as tolerated. Stir thoroughly and garnish with celery rib, an olive and pickled cocktail onion. When we were in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania last year we ate at Primanti Brothers. They served a Pickled Mary. I ordered. They served. The garnish was a dill pickle spear. I can roll that way, too.
