If there is a better hair-of-the-dog drink than a bloody mary, we sure don’t know what it is. Visit Beaumont shared its recipe for a tasty Sunday brunch cocktail, and they even made it for eight, so you can treat your friends!

Ingredients:
— 46 ounce can of tomato/vegetable juice such as V8
— 1 teaspoon of TexJoy Steak Seasoning – Original Brand
— 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
— The juice of one lemon
— 1 cup vodka
— ice cubes
— celery sticks, olives and lime wedges for garnish

Directions:
Pour tomato juice into a large pitcher. Add TexJoy Steak Seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and vodka. Stir well. Pour into individual glasses. Serve over ice with celery sticks as stirrers. Garnish with olives and wedges of limes or lemons. (Insider tip: you can also serve this drink sans vodka for a tasty nonalcoholic punch.) Serves 8.
