45 ml (1 1/2 fl oz) good quality vodka (I like 666 Pure Tasmanian)
70 ml (2 1/4 fl oz) tomato juice
30 ml (1 fl oz) The Fermentary kimchi juice (optional)
Juice of 1/4 lime, plus a wedge to garnish
5 dashes worcestershire sauce
3–6 dashes Tabasco chilli sauce (depending on how hot you like it)
Dash celery bitters (optional)
Small pinch of cracked black pepper
Small pinch of salt flakes
Celery stalk or cucumber stick, to garnish
Add the vodka, tomato juice, kimchi juice, lime juice, worcestershire sauce, Tabasco and celery bitters, if using, to a nice tall glass, fill with ice and stir everything together.
Sprinkle over the cracked black pepper and salt flakes and garnish with a lime wedge and a celery stalk or a stick of cucumber.
Note: For a virgin Mary, just leave out the vodka.
