Bloody Mary’s make the perfect fit for a Halloween celebration for obvious reasons, plus its always a great drink to have on your repertoire of cocktails for any day of the year.

    So here are a couple of the best recipes from two celeb chefs Bobby Flay (Mesa Grill) and Emeril.
    The Mesa Grill’s Bloody Mary

    16 ounces tomato juice
    3 ounces vodka
    2 dashes hot red pepper sauce
    1 dash Worcestershire sauce
    2 jalapenos, sliced
    Pinch celery salt
    Pinch black pepper
    1 lemon, juiced
    Celery spears, for garnish

    Combine all ingredients, except celery spears, in a small pitcher, pour into large glasses filled with ice and garnish with celery spears.
    Emeril’s Bloody Mary Mix

    3 cups tomato juice
    3 tablespoons lemon juice
    3 tablespoons lime juice
    1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce, or to taste
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    3/4 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste (recommended: Tabasco)
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    Premium vodka
    Small jar pickled green beans
    Small jar pickled okra

    In a blender combine the tomato juice, lemon juice, lime juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and hot sauce and process until smooth. Transfer to a nonreactive container and add salt and black pepper, to taste. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 2 hours and up to overnight. When ready to serve, fill each glass with ice.

    Add 1 ounce of vodka to each glass, then fill the glass with the bloody mary mix. Stir well, and garnish each glass with a pickled green bean and a pickled okra.
