  1. Use quality (canned) tomato juice. Tomato puree with a little water will also work. 
  2. Remember, it’s ok to get dirty! If you like it salty, give your Bloody Mary a briny kick by adding more pickle or olive juice.
  3. Spice it Up! Top off your cocktail with one of your favorite spices. Not sure which spices to try? Sami suggests cumin, basil or horseradish.
