Per all this, obvs. Ben Miller and Spencer are correct here. But you know where else Old Bay is a wonderful addition? A good Bloody Mary. Of course, a good Bloody Mary should have vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, lemon or lime juice, Tabasco, either celery or olives (I prefer olives), and lots of ice. I know the inclusion of horseradish is highly contested. But I’d argue that it’s Old Bay that makes a Bloody Mary truly delightful. Even better if the rim of the glass is encrusted with Old Bay, in the manner of a Margarita with salt.
