    Hubby made these for us this afternoon and boy, did they hit the spot! The olive brine was a different addition from what we're used to, and hubby added his own spin with a little horseradish. After rimming the glass with celery salt he garnished it with green olives, a fresh chilled shrimp and a leafy stalk of celery. Beautiful and delicious!  -  09 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Love the "mary's" ... but for me, a healthy dose of horse radish is a must. Also like to use 1/2 V8 & 1/2 Clamato...and add Old Bay Seasoning (for my East coast hubby) -- then add a beef stick and a small chaser of beer...life is good!  -  25 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Alright, it's sort of authentic. I bartend in Green Bay and I make mine a little differently. I build mine in this order: Ice, 5 shakes celery salt, Squeeze of juice from one lemon wedge, 5 shakes Worcestershire, 2 drops steak sauce, 3 drops Tabasco, 2 shakes Old Bay Seasoning, *Vodka, Tomato juice (stir after adding or Worcestershire will pool at bottom), 2 fresh olives, 2 shrimp, 1 beef stick, 1 stick Colby-Jack Cheese, 1 pickle, and 1 fresh lemon wedge - That's an authentic Wisconsin brunch Bloody!  -  17 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
