A Bloody Mary is the quintessential brunch beverage and I’m going to show you how to make the best Bloody Mary recipe.
Vodka - 8 oz. Hot sauce - a few dashes Tomato juice - 4 oz. Horseradish - 2 tsp. Lemon juice - 1 1/2 oz. Worcestershire sauce - a few dashes Celery salt - 1/2 tsp. Olive juice - 1 oz.
Mix tomato juice with horseradish, lemon juice, celery salt, hot sauce, Worcestershire & olive juice in a pitcher. This is your “Homemade Bloody Mary Mix“.
Mix up the ingredients for the rimmers (sea salt, cayenne, celery seed) and coat each glass with this spicy mixture. Set the glasses aside to allow the rim to dry a bit and set up.
Gather your garnishes and arrange the skewers. Carefully add everything to your rimmed glassware. Ideas for garnish: crispy bacon, lemon, olives, pickled okra, tomatoes.
Fill glasses with ice and pour in the vodka and your chilled Bloody Mary mix. The best part of pitcher drinks like these is how easy they are to make. They are also best when made ahead.
The variations on a Bloody Mary are nearly endless. – Swap tomato juice for Clamato and make a Bloody Caesar. – Swap vodka for tequila and make a Bloody Maria. – Swap in gin for the vodka and now you have a Red Snapper.
