Default bloody mary: hot or not?

as a single professional woman in an amazing city filled with lovely people, i regularly drink 4-5 nights/days a week. thats just the way it is for me right now.

so alright. bloody marys are delicious.

i read somewhere on 3fc that a bloody mary has "400 or more calories" in it. i juuuust dont see how thats possible.

basic bloody mary = vodka + bloody mary mix. and the place i like serves them with pickled okra, green beans, olives, and a beautiful celery stick tucked in as well. meaning there actually is fiber in this drink and no simple syrup or other sneakily caloric additions. plenty of salt, but STILL.

anyone have any thoughts on this?? i guess ultimately im wondering if i can add a basic bloody mary to my "drink safe" list which is now:

wine -- half a 750ml bottle ~300 calories
beck's light beer -- ~70 calories
MGD light -- ~70 calories
vodka soda -- ~210 for a generous double
vodka (TITOS) and unsweetened iced tea -- ~210 calories for a generous double

if you can follow this... im thinking swap the soda or the tea for effing veggie juice or bloody mary mix and that couldnt add more than 100 more calories to the glass, right????

a couple of weeks ago someone here posted low calorie cocktail ideas..

my own personal fave:

1 packet of C Light lemonade
1.5 ounces of Tequila
Diet Sprite or Diet Gingerale

150 calories!

bloody marys (maries?) are UP there on my favorite list, not only for flavor but for being a rather healthy option.

i don't know exact cals because i don't know what kind of mix is being used, but when I did WW a few years ago, they quoted 2 points for your typical bloody mary. now, if your favorite place serves ginormous ones like mine does, then maybe you should double that for 4 points. i believe i point is roughly 50-60 calories, maybe some current WW girls can help us out with this?

but short answer: hot. so, so hot.
