Desired Zing Zang Mix (or Bloody Mary mix of your choice)
1 tablespoon olive brine
1 dash Worcestershire Sauce
2-3 dashes Tabasco Sauce
3/4 ounces Lemon juice
1 teaspoon Horseradish
2-3 turns Fresh ground black pepper

Build over ice in a pint glass over ice, then roll back and forth 3-4 times from one glass to another to mix. Garnish with olives, celery, and a lemon wedge.
