    Bloody Mary Recipes

    Ok guys, I'm trying to look to the future here. I'm trying to figure out what drink to make for next weekends tailgate. I usually just stick with beer but thinking with the early kickoff maybe something different. It's getting a little cooler out so I'm thinking maybe Bloody Mary. What's everyone's favorite Bloody Mary recipe? Or if you've got another drink that you prefer for cooler, earlier tailgates lets hear it.

    I'm tried and true and even after last weeks loss I'll be there when the lots open ready for another football game and hopefully a well played victory.

    Too lazy to make them from scratch, but my favorite mix is Famous Dave's.

    Ben Jack Laredo makes the best mix I've ever had.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes

    I like zing zang, but then I add some hot sauce, worchestershire sauce, celery salt, cavender's greek seasoning, a dash of A1, and garnish with whatever pickled vegetable I have on hand. Asparagus and garlic stuffed olives are great, but expensive so I rarely have them around. Pickle spear is always legit.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Always spicy and make sure to add a slash of orange juice. Don't knock it until youv'e tried it.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes

    The following recipe serves 6 and it is AWESOME!

    2 cups vegetable juice cocktail
    1.5 cups vodka
    1 cup cocktail sauce
    Juice of 1/2 large lemon
    Juice of 1 small lime
    2 teaspoons cracked pepper
    1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
    1 teaspoon celery seeds
    1/4 cup cumin seeds, ground

    Celery salt to taste
    Celery heart spears
    Pickled okra
    Pickeld green beans

    Mix the first 9 ingredients together well. Moisten the rims of your glasses with water and rotate the rims in celery salt to cover. Fill glasses with ice and strain the bloody mary mixture into the glasses serve with a choice of cerery hearts, pickled okra, or pickled green beans.

    This recipe will not disappoint!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Bloody Mary Recipes

    Try gin instead of Vodka, or better yet 2/3 gin and 1/3 vodka.
