This Bloody Mary has a secret ingredient, and it’s one that’s likely sitting in your fridge already: the pickle jar. Stretch the jar of pickles and use the pickle juice to shake up a Bloody Mary with other classic ingredients like vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco. The addition of pickle juice gives the drink a distinctly delicious briny flavor, and it’s a game-changer. For a zero-proof Bloody Mary, make it with non-alcoholic vodka or gin, which are rising in popularity and more widely available than ever.
