San Francisco bartender and Liquor.com advisory board member H. Joseph Ehrmann says this is the world’s best Bloody Mary recipe.
Coat the rim of a pint glass with Old Bay Seasoning. Add the remaining ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake lightly—you want to mix the ingredients without melting too much of the ice—and pour (unstrained) into the prepared glass. Garnish with a kosher dill pickle spear and a cooked slice of thick-cut bacon. Don’t use a straw; drink from the rim in order to get a little of the Old Bay with each sip. And eat your bacon, dammit.
