This Bloody Mary is not for the faint of heart, intentionally spicy and potent to wake you up with a quickness. The flavor of black pepper, ironically, shines most dominantly of all the ingredients here, so please use freshly ground, none of the pre-ground, powdered stuff. And the 1/2 cup vodka here is appropriate for a morning tipple but if you want the full strength of a normal cocktail, double it and use 1 cup.

1

Pour the tomato juice, vodka, lemon juice, horseradish, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and hot sauce into a pitcher filled with cracked ice. Stir with a spoon to combine until chilled.

2

If you want, run the cut side of the lime or lemon wedge along the rim of a tall glass then dip the rim in some Tajin. Fill the glass with ice, then pour in the bloody mary mix.

3

Garnish with the celery stalks, pickle spears, asparagus, green beans, cornichons, onions, olives, pepperoncini, shrimp and lime and lemon wedges to serve.
