3 large stalks, plus extra for serving, celery from the heart, including leaves
36 oz. tomato juice
2 tsp. prepared horseradish
1 tsp. grated yellow onion
1 lemon, juiced
½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp. celery salt
¼ tsp. kosher salt
12 dashes (or to taste) hot sauce
1½ cups vodka


Cut the celery in large dice, including the leaves, and puree in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process until finely minced. In a large pitcher, combine the rest of the ingredients except the vodka. With the food processor running, pour ¼ of the tomato juice mixture into the food processor through the feed tube. Then pour the contents of the food processor into the pitcher with the remaining tomato juice mixture. Add the vodka and chill. Serve in tall glasses with a stick of celery.


We generally simply make and chill the mix and let everyone add their own vodka—or add none at all. And we only put in 6 dashes of the hot sauce and put out the Tabasco bottle so everyone can adjust the heat to their taste.

Ina Garten recommends Sacramento tomato juice, which we have never been able to find. We use Campbell's, which is pretty much available everywhere.

We all think this is the best bloody Mary mix ever!
