Bloody Mary Mix:



Special equipment:
8 large party cups, wooden skewers or toothpicks
  1. For the bloody Mary mix: Combine the tomato juice, horseradish, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and 2 teaspoons each salt and pepper in a large pitcher and stir to combine. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  2. For serving: Put some lemon and lime wedges in a bowl next to a shallow bowl of chile lime seasoning. Arrange the garnishes in small bowls or glasses for serving with a bowl or glass full of wooden skewers or toothpicks nearby. Fill an ice bucket or bowl with ice.
  3. Show your guests how to rub the rim of a large party cup with a wedge of lemon or lime and then dip it into the chile lime seasoning. Fill each cup with ice, add 1 cup of the bloody Mary mix and top with 2 ounces of vodka or tequila if desired. Stir well, then let your guests pick from the garnishes using the skewers or toothpicks for the smaller items.
