Bartender Anna Vanderzee suggests making the mix for this recipe one day in advance to allow the spices and horseradish to marry with the tomato juice.

  1. 1/2 cup finely grated peeled fresh horseradish
  2. 2 ounces Worcestershire sauce
  3. 2 ounces Sriracha chile sauce
  4. Finely grated zest of 1 small lemon
  5. 2 teaspoons celery salt
  6. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  7. Freshly ground pepper
  8. 32 ounces tomato juice
  9. Ice
  10. 16 ounces vodka
  11. Lime wedges
  12. Pickled or fresh vegetables (optional)
  1. In a pitcher, combine the horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, Sriracha, lemon zest, celery salt, kosher salt and 2 teaspoons ground pepper. Add the tomato juice and stir well. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
  2. Pour the tomato juice mixture into 8 ice-filled rocks glasses. Add 2 ounces vodka to each glass and stir. Garnish each drink with a pinch of ground pepper, a lime wedge and pickled vegetables.
