Curry-Spiced Bloody Mary Mix

Refreshing Beverage of the Week
Cocktail, healthfood drink, who can tell the difference? I love tomato juice and it is good for you so I was very excited to try this savory treat — which you can make a alcoholic as you want. This recipe from the April 2010 Bon Appétit is by Gayle Pirie and John Clark and makes a pitcher's worth.

Ingredients
10 cups tomato juice
1 2/3 cups vodka
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Madras curry powder
2 teaspoons fine sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Procedure
Combine everything in large pitcher. Whisk in 2 teaspoons sea salt and pepper. Season with more salt, if desired. Cover; chill. DO AHEAD: Can be made 8 hours ahead. Keep chilled. Whisk before serving. Fill tall glasses with ice. Pour in Bloody Mary mixture. Garnish with celery sticks.
