For the weekend early riser, PPW crafts a superb Bloody Mary Elixir. It doesn't contain any tomato juice, just the brand's homemade blend of spicy goodness that features house-made Worcestershire sauce. It's enough for up to a half-gallon round of Bloody Marys and can even be used for cooking with chicken or chili.
