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

1 teaspoon minced garlic
3/4 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste (recommended: Tabasco)
3/4 teaspoon salt

In a blender combine the tomato juice, lemon juice, lime juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and hot sauce and process until smooth.
