I'm getting better recently, as I'm playing more seriously and more frequently now. My last round of golf I played I shot a 40 on the front 9. We won't ask what I shot on the back 9, except to say that it all went to hell. !+)

And in two trips up, mine beat his hands down both times. And I have generally good luck mixing drinks, anyways. So for whatever it's worth, here's my suggestions.

I like tomato juice vs. V8; it gives it a fuller body. Less thin. Horseradish is an absolute must. A few dashes of worcestshire sauce is a must. Try olives and celery. See which you like better (maybe both). Celery salt is good to give a little bite. Ditto for hot sauce.

In my drinking experience (much broader than my mixing) a good bloody mary is hearty and spicy. Hearty in the sense that it's thick, like a cream of tomato soup and not thin like a glass of pop. And it also has a strong bite which can come from a variety of sources. With just a bit of tang. If I were you, I'd take a pint glass, put ice up about 3/4, throw in a jigger of vodka, throw in tomato juice up to bring it up to about 85% full, and then try various additives, stirring and sipping as you go along. Works for cooking. Works for drinking.

Other possible additives: pearl onions, black pepper, lime wedges, stuffed olives, jalapenos, A1 steak sauce (I think), wasabi, lemon juice, and beef stock(?) (suggested by one guy).

I've been experimenting with your suggestions and I'm getting better. I like the celery salt, salt on the rim, stuffed olives and the shot or two of Tabasco. I also like a spicy dill pickle as garnish - it adds some punch and some sour to the mix. I haven't been brave enough to try the horseradish or the beef stock, but I will give those a try.

Thanks for the tips! ;-D

If I can't find the right mix I'll look for this stuff, but I'm trying to make it myself. I don't have any aspirations of being a bartender, but I'd at least like to be able to make my "favorite" drink, you know?
