Chicago Style Bloody Mary

Chicago Style Bloody Mary



3 minutes


1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds

1 teaspoon celery salt

1 wedge lemon

Dill pickle spears

Cocktail wieners

12 fluid ounces of tomato juice (make sure it's chilled)

1/2 cup of vodka

1 teaspoons yellow mustard

3/4 teaspoon dill pickle juice

3/4 teaspoon finely grated sweet onion

Sport or pepperoncini peppers


1. Add poppy seeds & half of the celery salt to a shallow plate (similar to above)

2. Cut your lemon wedge in half & rub around the rim of your glasses

3. Flip your glasses upside down & rim the edge of your glass in poppy seed/salt mixture & then fill will ice.

4. Stir your V8 vegetable juice, vodka, mustard, pickle juice, onion and remaining celery salt in a pitcher. Add more mustard or celery salt to taste.

5. Stir gingerly until mixed well & pour into glasses.

6. Now the fun part! Grab your skewers and get to work – garnish them like your favorite Chicago-style hot dog. We love cherry tomatoes, a good sport pepper, a delicious cocktail hot dog, a dill pickle, and of course, a sweet onion!

7. Serve, sip, repeat!
