Bloody Mary No. 2 (with lovage)

Combine all, except lovage stalks:

1/2 cup lime juice

2 tablespoons prepared horseradish

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce (or to taste)

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 cups good-quality vodka or gin (we prefer Tanqueray, or, in England, Gordon’s non-export)

Combine all ingredients except lovage in a pitcher and stir well. Pour over ice in 6 tall glasses and garnish with the lovage stalks, which should be used as straws.
