Directions

Notes

Special equipment: a 1-quart Mason jar

Step 1

To a pitcher filled a quarter full with ice, add the tomato juice, beef broth, vodka, lemon juice, horseradish, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, celery seed and pepper. Stir to combine. Serve over ice, garnished with celery stalks and Spicy Pickled Okra and Green Beans.

Step 2

Bring a medium pot of well-salted water to a boil. Have an ice bath ready.

Step 3

Boil the green beans until just crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add the okra and cook for 30 seconds. Drain in a colander and immediately transfer to the ice bath to cool. Drain the vegetables and pack them into the Mason jar along with the dill and garlic.

Step 4

Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat and add the coriander seeds; toast until fragrant and a shade darker, about 2 minutes. Add the vinegar, sugar, red pepper flakes, cayenne, smoked paprika, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1 cup water. Bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Pour the brine over the vegetables. Add a little water to the jar to cover the vegetables if necessary. Cool to room temperature, then cover the jar and refrigerate for at least 6 hours and up to 3 weeks.
