Yet Another (YA) basic Bloody Mary mix. Good, tasty, basic. Perfect for breakfast. I love to use a basic BM mix recipe since it sets the tone for the beverage and I can adjust to our tastes from there.

For the mix
3 cups (24 ounces) good quality tomato juice
2 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 1 medium lemon)
2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 2 medium limes)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons peeled and finely grated fresh horseradish
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon hot sauce, such as Tabasco
1 teaspoon celery salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

For serving
2 cups (16 ounces) rail vodka
Celery stalks (optional)
Lime wedges (optional)

Build the mix. Place all of the ingredients in a nonreactive 1-quart container and whisk until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until the flavors meld and the mix is chilled, at least 2 hours or preferably overnight. The mix will keep refrigerated in a container with a tight fitting lid for up to 24 hours.

When ready to serve, whisk the mix to recombine.

Fill 8 highball glasses halfway with ice. Pour 2 ounces of the vodka and 4 ounces of the mix into each glass and stir to combine. Garnish each with a celery stalk or lime wedge, if using.
