Best damn Blood Mary

We had some time to chill out and relax this Sunday so I tried my hand at the Best Damn Bloody Mary recipe from Paso Robles Steak House and the audience agrees with the recipe name!

Bloody Mary Base:
5 ounces Worchestershire sauce
1 ounce Zinfandel
3 ounces olive juice
1 lemon, juiced
1 lime, juiced
1 Tablespoon Cajun Spice (you get to make your own!)
1 Tablespoon horseradish
8 dashes Tobasco
1 Tablespoon fresh ground pepper

Cajun Spice:
2-1/2 Tablespoons paprika
2 Tablespoons garlic powder
2 Tablespoons kosher salt (I recommend 1/4 Tablespoon)
1 Tablespoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon cayenne or chili powder
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 Tablespoon dried thyme
1 Tablespoon celery salt
1/2 Tablespoon smoked paprika (I didn't have any so used 1/4 Tbl chipotle chili powder)

Start with pint glass, salt rim, fill with ice
Pour 2 ounces Bloody Mary Base
Pour 2 ounces Absolut Peppar and 2 ounces Absolut Citron
Fill to top with tomato juice (approx 4 oz)
Garnish with vegetable skewer (olives, celery, cherry tomato, bell pepper) and celery stalk
