The Bloody Mary is a frequent breakfast drink for Malory Archer and Sterling Archer. This cocktail contains vodka, tomato juice, and ingredients such as Worcestershire, Tabasco, beef bouillon, horseradish, celery, olive, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, lemon juice and/or celery salt. It has been called "the world's most complex cocktail." Malory and Sterling frequently have theirs with a celery stick inside.

In How to Archer: The Ultimate Guide to Espionage and Style and Women and Also Cocktails Ever Written, Archer gives a recipe for his Bloody Mary:

  • 3oz vodka
  • 6oz freshly squeezed tomato juice
  • 1oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated horse radish
  • dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • dash of hot sauce
  • dash of salt and pepper

Shake ingredients, over ice, in a cocktail mixer. Pour mixture and ice into an imperial pint glass and garnish, using one of those cool little plastic swords they have, with:

  • 1 rib organic celery, with leafy bits still attached
  • 3 Extremadura olives (pitted and pimiento-ed ahead of time by your valet)
  • 3 caper berries

"For I am a sinner in the hands of an angry God. Bloody Mary full of vodka, blessed are you among cocktails. Pray for me now and at the hour of my death, which I hope is soon. Amen." - Sterling Archer
