DIY Bloody Mary Bars - Where are they? Thu, 10/13/11 2:06 AM (permalink)
DIY Bloody Mary Bars have sprung up all over the place!
Where's your favorite one?
What unusual things have you put in yours?
And don't say at your house because everyone thinks they make the perfect Bloody Mary, don't ya?

    I've never heard of DIY bloody mary bars, but what an interesting concept. The wierdest thing I've ever put in mine was horseradish instead of hot sauce. Learned that in the airport bar in Portland Maine.

      Powdered celery seed or celery salt, V8, L&P Worcestershire, lime juice. Nothing weird about using creamy horseradish in place of Tabasco, that's fairly common. I make the mix not for bloody mary's but as the base for my pot roasts and beef stews.

        We don't have them here either but the strangest thing I've ever had in one made for me was Claussen pickle juice.  So good.

            They're kinda like a salad bar. The bartender pours your booze and then you go to the "Salad Bar" and add what you like to it.

              I'm on board for that. Point me in the direction if there's one here in Austin.

                You can generally find them at places that do brunches. Contact the food editor at your local paper. Bet they would know.

                  A shot of A-1 Sauce works in mine.

                    Not a DIY place, but one of our local riverfront restaurants offer choice of "their" version of the Tomato Juice base ( a spicy V8 flavor juice) plus two or three spicy meat slices skewered in the long toothpick in the Drink with the usual celery and scallion 'sticks'. The flavor that Pepperoni and other meat gives the beverage make it a fine sipping drink.  I like the thought of the Horse Radish garnish. We'll have to try that soon.
                    Isn't the drink made with Bloody Mary Mix, Vodka, and Beef Bullion called a "Bullshot"??? Where's my drink-mixer bible (from a RF Member) when I need it ?

                          Here's one Bullshot Recipe:
                          (NO Tomato Juice in these)
                          Ingredients:
                          1 1/2 oz vodka
                          3 oz chilled beef bouillon
                          Dash of Worcestershire, Tabasco, salt and pepper to taste
                          Celery salt (optional)
                          Preparation:
                          Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
                          Shake well.
                          Strain into a highball glass filled with ice.
