    Bloody Mary Recipes.

    Alright, everyone. Let's see what you've got. What is your special ingredient? what mixes are good?

    Personally, I hate olives. So that is a no go. I personally like a spicy pickle or pickled asparagus in mine. Which is weird, because I hate asparagus and tomato juice. My dad puts cocktail onions in his, which I've never tried but sounds alright.

    Zing zang is pretty good but way too salty. there is this stuff called demitri's



    which you fill a shot glass with and put into a bottle of clamato. pretty allsome.

    if I used just a regular mix I'd add garlic powder, worchestershire, tabasco (habanero is best or smokey chipotle), celery salt, this cajun seasoning my mom got in louisiana, and pickle juice.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    No recipe needed. Just mix these two, garnish with olive and pickle/shrimp. Trust me, I know my bloody mixes, and this is the best.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    I was able to coax the recipe the Cumming Tap uses. It's unbelievable! I can't wait to bust it out big time for tailgate season.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    Also, if you like your bloody marry somewhat spicy, you might want to try this. Not something to get often, but is nice to have every once in a while. I like to throw some extra heat in it, but most people will be good with just the mix.

    I agree with you on the spicy asparagus (pickled is good as well), but not liking olives? Really? And I really cannot understand why people use Zing Zang. It has way too much celery salt and seeds. I have got to the point where I rarely get a bloody mary at a bar because they almost always use Zing Zang.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    I prefer the bloody caesar. Clamato (no, I wouldn't drink this **** by itself), lemon juice, worcestershire, tabasco, black pepper, celery salt, and vodka.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    I believe Zing Zang is really good. But It really dosent matter what mix you use... Just poor a little pickle juice in the Bloody... You wont be disappointed....

    baby tears.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    Horseradish is a must in any Bloody.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    Ive found that the spicier mixes block out the vodka taste better

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    Easter Dinner isn't until 2 so this is making me hungry. Love Bloody Mary bars. Whoever said pickle juice earlier hit the nail on the head. Shrimp and beef jerky are great as well as pepperoni


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Is the famous dave's mix actually spicy? Because although I love them, the hellfire pickles are not spicy at all. and hellfire seems to insinuate spicy.


    How does everyone integrate the horseradish? I have some horsradish sauce (mixed with mayo) and shredded horseradish, but Im not sure on how to incorporate it into the drink.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    Also, has anyone tried this in a bloody mary? I think it would be good, but I am lacking on the funds to purchase it.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes.

    For mixes:
    -Hair of the Dawg (yes, its made by an ex-Hawk bball player, but its delicious)
    -Mr. & Mrs. T's (this has really grown on me)
    -Zing Zang (tried and true)

    My personal from scratch recipe:
    -Tomato juice
    -vodka
    -pickle juice (at least a shot glass worth, if not more)
    -worchestershire sauce
    -hot sauce of your choice
    -liberal dash of A1
    -garlic salt
    -celery salt
    -black pepper
    -Lawry's
    -Cavender's Greek seasoning
    -horseradish

    Garnish however you like. If we have beef sticks around, I'll go with a beef stick, hunk of cheese, and pickle/olive. Anyone I've tried this recipe on loved it. Pickle juice is the key. Adds a sourness kick, and different level to the drink. Don't knock it till you try it.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
