Football, brunch and a Bloody Mary. Perfect schedule for a fall weekend. I mean, really, can it get any better than that?
Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love the laid back style of summer, but once September arrives, that means football season is back. I love college football. And we watch a lot of it in my house. Add a great Bloody Mary to some of our tailgating favorites like this salsa or these individual dips and we are set.
Cocktail making is an art, and the Bloody Mary is particularly fun to experiment with because of the many ingredients. The bite of horseradish, along with the spice of Tabasco and black pepper, balance out the smoothness of the tomato juice and the brightness of the fresh squeezed lemon juice.

- 8 oz Tomato Juice
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 tsp. Tabasco Sauce

- 3/4 tsp horseradish
- olives and celery for garnish
- Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice. Strain into a highball glass filled with and garnish with olive and celery stick. Adjust seasonings for your personal taste preferences.
