Ingredients include:
1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 Lime sliced into wedges
4 ounces Vodka
2 ounces Clam Juice
6 ounces Bloody Mary mix

You’re going to start with your 12-ounce glass (high ball) and rub a lime wedge around the rim. Spread your Old Bay seasoning onto a plate and dip the rim of your glass into the seasoning until it’s evenly coated.

For the drink, in a shaker combine the vodka, clam juice, and Bloody Mary mix and give it a good shake. Add ice to your glass and pour your now mixed Bloody Mary in.

The garnish is one of our favorite parts of a Bloody Mary as it lets you get creative! We recommend a slice of bacon, fresh or pickled okra, a tabasco pepper, garlic chive bloom and a lime wedge. You could also try chilled wild Georgia shrimp, olives, chunks of cheese, celery, quarters of a grilled cheese sandwich, cherry tomatoes or even mini sliders. Be as fancy or simple as your taste buds desire, either way this is definitely a drink you will make again!!
