Zesty spices and vampire-repelling garlic make these bloody marys extra special. Complete with garnishes impaled on a "stake," this concoction not only offers protection from Dracula, but is bloody tasty too. It repels vampires with or without vodka.

directions

FOR THE BLOODY MARY:

Place celery salt in a shallow bowl. Run lime wedge around the rims of six pint glasses. Dip the glasses in the celery salt, so it creates a crust around the rim of the glass. Fill with ice, divide vodka evenly between the glasses, and set aside. Mix lime juice, spices, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and tomato juice in a pitcher. Pour into glasses. Give the drink a quick stir, garnish with celery stalks and skewers (instructions follow), and serve.

FOR THE SKEWERS:

Assemble skewers, alternating ingredients, until they are gone. Place in Bloody Mary and serve.
