How do you make the best Bloody Mary?

Square One: How to Make the Best Bloody Mary Recipe

Before discussing how to make the very best bloody Mary recipe, let’s start with the basics: Ingredients.  Whenever possible, use fresh ingredients in your bloody Mary recipe.  The worst thing you can do is buy some bottle of pre-mixed concoction, laden with preservatives, most of which are hard to pronounce.  Instead, gather up fresh citrus, whole peppercorns, and fresh celery salt.  Throw out that old shaker that’s sat in the back of your cupboard since the Clinton administration and buy fresh.  Better still? grind your own!

To really keep things fresh, consider infusing your vodka.  I’ll write more about this but think about it.  Why buy some powder from an old dried out pepper that sat on a shelf for who knows how long?  That’s NOT how to make the best bloody Mary recipe folks!  Instead, try putting fresh peppers into your vodka and letting it sit for a couple weeks. (No more- it will get bitter)  You’ll be amazed at the flavor!

Don’t mix all of your ingredients up far in advance.  To keep the flavors alive, make the cocktails close to the moment of consumption as possible.  Keep it cold!  Chilling the drink will also preserve the freshness of the ingredients.  I like to use a cocktail shaker full of ice to chill my Bloody.

Follow the “How to Make a bloody Mary Cocktail video,” then try experimenting with your own ideas.  If you really want to impress your friends and customers, spend some time and money on garnishes.  Adding a small meal on top of the bloody Mary will make the cocktail memorable.  There’s nothing better than watching someone take a photo of the cocktail you made to post it to Face Book.  Grow some buzz!

Finally, don’t forget to serve your bloody Mary with a small glass of cold beer.  Call it a chaser, a beer back, or a side car, it’s a perfect companion to this drink.

Those are the basic principles of how to basics of making a bloody Mary, from Clamato to

Bacon Bloody Mary Recipe

Delicious Bacon Meets Savory Cocktail

The Bacon Bloody Mary Recipe

Bacon Bloody Mary

Bacon Bloody Mary – the perfect balance of food and drink recipe! There are two things that I expect from a good brunch: Bacon and bloody Mary’s! Eggs? Fine. Hash browns? Whatever. There are also two things that I have found to be the best hangover cures: Greasy food and more alcohol. So here it is- the perfect brunch, the perfect hangover cure: the bacon bloody Mary! Serve this at your next brunch and skip the egg bake!

Start by infusing vodka with bacon. To a quart of your favorite vodka, add 3 strips of cooked bacon.  Careful not to burn it.  Baking on a cookie sheet works well.  While you’re at it, cook up some extra.  Ever had to throw out leftover bacon? I didn’t think so.  Let it infuse for a week or two. (I keep bacon infused vodka on my shelf at all times)

As usual, start by filling a shaker with ice. Next, crack some fresh black pepper over that ice. Now crack some more delicious pepper. It really goes well with this drink. Splash about a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and a dash of celery salt. (go easy on the celery salt.  It can be pretty salty. Squeeze 1/4 wedge of fresh lemon, then pour a couple ounces of the bacon infused vodka. Cover with your favorite tomato juice or V-8, if you prefer, and shake it well. Pour drink into a tall frosted glass. Grind one more turn of black pepper and sprinkle with celery salt over the top. This looks nice, but also greets the nose with great smells. Serve with a sprig of freshly cooked bacon and crisp romaine lettuce leaf for garnish. I’ve also served a piece of toast with a light spread of mayonnaise. It’s like a BLT in a glass!

For a beer chaser, I recommend a dark stout or porter.

Whew! Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato..Enjoy  the bacon bloody Mary recipe, but not in moderation.

Demitri’s Bloody Mary Where to Buy and What to Buy

The Classic recipe is savory and delicious, but not spicy.  It has a very light sweetness.  There isn’t much not to like about it, unless you really like heat.

Any fan of horseradish will love Demitri’s extra horseradish bloody Mary recipe. They don’t skimp on the horseradish. Spicy and pungent, this flavor is quite popular in the upper Midwest.  I take it to fall football tailgate parties.

My personal favorite is the chilies and peppers mix.  It has a nice fresh pepper flavor and just enough spice. I find it to be the perfect blend of fresh tasting celery, peppers, and worcestershire flavors.

If you like a little smokey heat, go for the chipotle habanero flavor. It’s very tasty, but you might break into a face sweat.  (I happen to like that!)  It’s great as a seasoning for buffalo chicken wings.  Remember: It’s Hot!

You may also enjoy Demitris Rim salts. Rimming your chilled glass in Demitri’s classic rim salt, or bacon rim salt, makes the drink even more special by adding an additional dimension

Always use fresh tomato juice, your favorite spirit, and keep your bloody Mary chilled. Cheers!
