San Francisco bartender and advisory board member H. Joseph Ehrmann says this is the world's best Bloody Mary recipe.


  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2 oz Square One Organic vodka
  • 1 tsp Dried dill
  • 1 tsp Ground white pepper
  • 1 tsp Celery salt
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 dashes Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 oz Elixir Juice (a mixture of olive brine, dill pickle brine and various other pickle brines)
  • 1 Lemon wedge's juice
  • 1 tsp Prepared horseradish
  • 4 oz Tomato juice
  • Garnish: Kosher dill pickle
  • Garnish: Cooked thick-cut bacon slice


  1. Coat the rim of a pint glass with Old Bay Seasoning.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice.

  3. Garnish with a kosher dill pickle spear and a cooked slice of thick-cut bacon.

  4. Don't use a straw; drink from the rim in order to get a little of the Old Bay with each sip.
