Then, pour the liquid back into the smaller shaker while the ice cubes are held back by the Julep strainer. Pour the Bloody Mary back and forth a total of six times. This is called rolling or throwing. Pour and strain the Bloody Mary with the ice cubes into a highball or long drink glass. Garnish with a celery stick.
