Today is National Bloody Mary Day. And since many of you may be seeking the hair of the dog, I found for you (many, many years ago) the PERFECT Cajun Bloody Mary recipe, courtesy of Coastal Living magazine. It makes a pitcher (so you can share with your friends too or save the rest for Sunday brunch).
Cajun Bloody Mary
1 (46-ounce) bottle tomato juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup liquid from jar of pickled okra or jalapenos
3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning blend
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1 1/2 cups vodka
Garnish: Lemon wedges and pickled okra
Stir together ingredients in a large pitcher, and chill. Pour into tall glasses. Garnish, if desired.
