Bloody Mary Mix Fri, 03/21/08 6:00 PM (permalink)
What's your favorite one? Mine? None of them, make my own with V8, lemon juice, worstershire sauce, celery salt, tobasco, garlic stuffed Spanish olives, a marinated hot string bean, horseradish, pepper. Doesn't even have to have Vodka in it.

    I'll take that Vodka if you aren't going to drink it. Seriously - sounds like a great combo of ingredients, though I prefer the purity of good quality tomato juice to V8. I put the tiniest drop of oyster sauce in mine - and prefer Thai to Chinese oyster sauce for this.

      Try your own concoction using Clamato.

          CTF Mine is the same as yours except for tobasco. I use Crystal Sauce instead. Much better flavor than Tobasco.

            There is a restaurant in Dallas (Ozana)down on Greenville, that for Sunday Brunch, offers a make it yourself, Bloody Mary bar. They will bring you a glass, the ice and a shot of vodka, and you pretty much make your own Bloody Mary. You must realize that in Dallas no alchohol is legally sold until NOON, but this place starts serving at 10:00AM- I guess they have special dispensation, from who knows who- anyway the amount of different things that they offer to make your drink with and to use as additives- shrimp, avacado, celery sticks, olives, dilled green beans- you name it, it's here. But their own private stock of tomato mixer is out of this world. No need to add anything- well, maybe a pinch of horseradish- but that's all!

                One large can of Spicy V-8 juice
                two Tbs. horseradish
                the juice of one lime
                Cholula hot sauce to taste
                two Tbs. fresh dill finely diced
                celery salt to taste
                fresh ground black pepper to taste
                two Tbs. Worcestershire sauce or to taste
                don't forget a good quality vodka or tequila to taste

                I have used this recipe for the last 20 years at home and in the bar and I have never had a complaint, EVER!

                  Trader Joe's has one that will stand up to any home made. Just add quality Vodka and a little pickle juice and "Bob's your uncle."

                    I'm having one as I post - made much the same as chewingthefat - but I also use Crystal hot sauce - and pickled okra as a garnish - it's pretty tasty.

                      If I'm not making my own, I think this is one of the best.

                        Nice ideas all!

                        Bailey, the pickled okra is a new twist to me, sounds good!

                        I add beef bullion, and Louisana Hot Sauce, to make a "bloody Bull". I use 2 cubes, and 6 oz. of water, to a big can of V8 or tomato juice. I use the store brand V8.

                        Other things I sometimes add;
                        Any kind of hot sauce I like
                        Clausen pickle juice ( my Clausens go dry sometimes )
                        Lime or lemon juice
                        Celery salt
                        Soy sauce
                        Teriyaki sauce
                        Worcestershire sauce
                        A-1 steak sauce
                        Juice ( to taste ) from a small can of boiled oysters, and eat the oysters with the drink. Makes a good breakfast!

                          Oysters!

                          Next time I have raw oysters I'm going to eliminate the cocktail sauce and crackers and have them with a spicy Blood Mary!

                          Thanks, Papa!

                            Personally I think an azz kikin spicy as all get out, Bloody Mary[didn't want to just use BM, cause that seems to work too], is great for a hangover, gotta have a stick or 2 of celery and plenty of salt, pepper and enough fresh horseradish to cure it or give you a horseradish stroke!

                              Nooo prob Bailey!

                              I love raw oysters but it is a 40 mile drive for me to get some. That's why I started using the boiled ( just a buck or so ) canned ones. I know, I know, but hey, they are not bad and... I even make an Oysters Rockefeller kinda thingy with those babys. The juice is good for oyster dip to. Just mix it w/ sour cream and some hot sauce. Crown Prince is the brand I like.

                              Oh, celery, horseradish, yep.

                              Shoot, I'm gonna have to go make a batch. :~)

                                trying to remember how i do this:

                                vodka
                                Sacramento tomato juice
                                horseradish (alot!)
                                fresh lemon juice
                                celery salt
                                pepper
                                dash of A-1 sauce
                                dash of hot sauce
                                and the secret ingredient is: vermouth! (just a bit - it brings out the flavors of everything else in a good way)

                                    the Major Peters "The works" Bloody Mary mix is a good one if one wants to use a mix or another really good one, if you can find it is the brand Bloody Bold.

                                      The problem with all of these recipes is that they are all lacking "Old Bay".

                                          Rob, I will try some old bay. Good idea especially with my oyster juice version. Hmm, maybe float an ear of Bay Corn... instead of celery? :~)

                                          Sneetch, Oh I forgot A-1. I use it sometimes.

                                          Am I the only one to use teriyaki sauce in a bloody bull?

                                          Great one, I am surprised you didn't use a 7 oz. glass!

                                            "Zing Zang" is the best I've ever had.

                                              Next time you make a Bloddy Mary try using Gin instead of Vodka. Use 50/50 V8 and Clamato. Worchester sauce. Rim the glass with the celery salt. Must be coarse cracked pepper. A little anchovie paste. Horse raddish. Squeeze in half of a small Mexican thin skinned lime and drop it in. Pleanty of Hot Sauce non vinegar based. 1/4 pickle spear, whole celery stalk with foliage,3 big olives, crushed red pepper flakes. Serve in a very tall glass...Russ

                                                Russ, that sounds like a great meal Russ! Ahh, celery salt around the rim, neat idea! My email is still froze but I still have some hope to unfreeze it by the first of the month.

                                                  I believe the Original Bloody Mary recipe called for Gin,not Vodka.

                                                      Gin to me mixes much better with the lime and tomato. I love Vodka with fruit juice, orange,lemon aide,cranberry, and grapefruit. Tonic and lime for Gin. I think a Dry Gin Martini and a Bloody Mary with Gin are the two best drinks with a good steak.

                                                      Email me Papa when you get your email unfrozen and we will talk poker.

                                                      Try this one



                                                      1 1/2 parts gin
                                                      2 parts Clamato Juice
                                                      2 parts V8
                                                      1 tsp prepared horseradish
                                                      3 dashes Worcestershire
                                                      3 dashes hot sauce
                                                      1 part of Guinness Beer
                                                      1/2 small thin skinned mexican lime
                                                      splash spicy pickle brine (optional)
                                                      dash garlic powder (not garlic salt)
                                                      1/4 tsp coarse ground pepper
                                                      heavy pinch crushed red pepper flakes (looks good floating in drink)
                                                      dash of coarse salt
                                                      anchovie paste
                                                      3 large olives, celery stalk, 1/4 new kosher pickle spear, and lime wedge for serving
                                                      celery salt for rimming

                                                      Stir and serve on the rocks. If you want to be really fancy garnish with cilantro, or better yet, muddle some into the mixture.
                                                      Fill with ice in a tall beer glass.

                                                        I agree. Zing Zang is by far the best I've had. I will often add some Old Bay to it if I'm looking for that type of flavor. Pickles or spicy pickled green beans are my favorite garnishes. I don't even understand the stalk of celery thing.

                                                          Last weekend I was introduced to Whisky Willy's Bloody Mary mix and I have to say - it's the best mix I've ever had - a really good blend - nothing in it overpowers the other ingredients.

                                                          We had to drink several to reach this conclusion.

                                                            I tend to make my own, but someone gave us a gift basket with this in it, and it was very good. The clam is very mild.
