    I have had many a Bloody Mary, but had never tried pepper & celery seed with the rimmer salt. It was PRIMO !!  -  04 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Forget the pre-made mix, use a good quality tomato juice. Add your own worchestire, lime juice too taste. FORGET THE HORSERADISH let people add their own. Adding it early to the mix ruins it.  -  13 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Left out the pickle juice because it just seemed BUT, I have another suggestion for the rim of the glass. Try Old Bay seasoning. It's AMAZING  -  25 Sep 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
