Fat Tuesday: Spice Up Entertaining With Cajun Bloody Marys

This Cajun Bloody Mary is the perfect cocktail for entertaining during Mardi Gras celebrations. This spicy concoction warms you to the bone and has just the right Southern flavor to kick-off your Fat Tuesday right. For a pretty presentation, rub the rims of glasses with lemon wedges, and dip in a mixture of black pepper and coarse salt.

1/2 cup fresh lemon or lime juice
1/4 cup liquid from jar of pickled okra or jalapeños
3 tablespoons Cajun seasoning blend
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1 1/2 cups plain or pepper-flavored vodka

Stir ingredients together in a large pitcher and chill. Pour into tall glasses. Garnish, if desired.
