NOTES:  So, right now you are asking yourself, where is the booze!  LOL  This is just a basic Bloody Mary base.  You can add as much vodka as you like.  You may also add different types of vodka like lemon, lime or pepper flavored.  I always find that Bloody Mary lovers have very particular tastes when it comes to how they want their drink prepared so I usually have plain juice and all the mix ins out for my guests to help themselves,  But there is always someone that doesn’t know where to begin and this is a nice (not too spicy) base to set out.  It saves some time and guests can always add more heat or lemon or spice as they prefer.  This will just get them going.  One thing I never serve are those pre-made mixes you can buy at the store.  They are awful!  Take a few minutes to make this simple base and your guests will thank you.
