Food.Fun.Stuff: Winner!

[ 0 ] August 20, 2009 |

“We Are the Champions!!!” That song seems to float through our head every time we think about winning. Today, we have more winners at JKGF courtesy the Old Bay Bloody Mary Giveaway that took place a couple of weeks ago. Basically, we asked our readers to submit their ideas for good Bloody Mary’s with Old Bay in the recipe. We decided on one of our readers from New York City who submitted a basic but cool twist on an old fashioned favorite:

1 1/2 oz. vodka

1 dash celery salt

1 dash hot sauce

1 dash black pepper

Tomato Juice

2 dashes Worcestershire sauce

1/8 tsp. pure horseradish

1/2 oz. lemon juice

2 shrimp cocktails (for garnish)

2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning

Pickles spear (for garnish)

In a cocktail shaker, add the vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, the hot sauce, pepper, celery salt, horseradish and 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning; shake well. Strain into a highball glass. Coat the shrimp cocktail with the remaining Old Bay seasoning (1 tsp.) and garnish glass with shrimp and pickles spear. Serve.

Thank you New York reader! We love this recipe, it incorporates just the right amount of Old Bay without overdoing it. Any thoughts??

*Thanks to all who participated, we will be having a few more giveaways coming up in the near future, stay reading!
