Ingredients
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • Juice of 3 lemons (about 1/2 cup), plus 1 wedge for the glasses
  • 1 tablespoon celery salt, plus more to taste
  • 8 cups clam-tomato juice (such as Clamato)
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Freshly ground pepper
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lay the bacon on a wire rack set over a foil-lined baking sheet; brush the bacon with maple syrup. Bake until crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Set aside.

  • Run the lemon wedge around the rims of 6 glasses. Put the celery salt on a plate and dip the rims of the glasses in the salt to coat.

  • Combine the clam-tomato juice, lemon juice, vodka, horseradish and Worcestershire sauce in a pitcher and stir well. Season with celery salt and pepper. Fill the prepared glasses with ice, then add the cocktail and the maple bacon.
