Bloody Mary with Aedric Pickle Spear

This beverage is inspired by the Aedric Spear skill for the Templar class in Elder Scrolls Online. This brunch cocktail consists of a homemade Bloody Mary mix, vodka and an Aedric spear made of various pickled items.

Ingredients

For the Bloody Mary mix:
1.5 cups tomato juice (I recommend the version that is spicy and has clam juice)
juice of half a lemon
juice of one lime
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp prepared horseradish
Freshly ground pepper

For the pickle spear:
Cocktail skewer
Dill pickles
Green olives
Pickled green tomatoes
Pickled peppers

For the finished drink:
2oz vodka or tequila
celery
optional ice

  1. Combine all the mix ingredients in a container, and mix thoroughly
  2. Cut pickle ingredients so they will fit in the diameter of your glass and spear onto your skewer, set aside.
  3. Combine Bloody Mary mix, 2oz alcohol and optional ice in cocktail shaker or stir in glass. Place pickle spear and spear of celery in glass.
  4. Enjoy!
