Purist's Perfectly Pungent Bloody Mary

Here it is, the ultimate Bloody Mary designed for the ultimate peppery cocktail snob. Canned tomato juice is permitted only when fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes are not available.

1/2 teaspoon of your favorite bottled hot sauce (or more to taste)
1 1/2 ounces fine vodka such as Stolichnaya or Absolut
3 ounces tomato juice freshly made from vine-ripened tomatoes (or more to taste)
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
1 dash salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice cubes. Serve garnished with a slice of fresh serrano or jalapeņo chile.
