Bloody Mary Recipe

Horseradish makes this one of the best Bloody Mary recipes in the world. Without the horseradish, you'll have a more traditional drink, and without the alcohol, you'll have a Virgin Mary. Serve with a stalk of celery, dill pickle spear or even green olives.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
