UV Vodka Bloody Mary Recipe

How do you make the best Bloody Mary

Developed as part of the UV Vodka Challenge.

Listen Now:

Greg was given four UV Vodka flavors and tasked with creating a unique bloody Mary recipe for each.

Well I wasn’t too worried about creating a recipe for UV Regular vodka. I’ve made hundreds of delicious bloodies with the 4 times-distilled, carbon filtered vodka.

But which way to go…? Over the top? Down a side road…? After trying a few oddball directions I decided to stay close to the time-tested recipe I’ve made since first being inspired my Ernest Hemingway’s recipe was published in the New Yorker.

How to make a bloody Mary 101


The obvious answer is big and fat. After all, this is not my little wimpy bloody Marys.com, is it? The best bloody Mary recipe should be; cold, spicy, bold, and fresh. The perfect bloody Mary is all of these things with plenty of booze. Go ahead.  It’s 9 am somewhere!

You can find plenty of mixes on the other pages of this site. Before you get out your cocktail shaker, keep these factors in mind as you make a bloody Mary:

Go easy on the salt- don’t buy mixes with high sodium levels
Use fresh ingredients-squeeze fresh lemon or lime, crack fresh pepper.
Keep it cold- Cold preserves flavor
Do not mix in advance-the seasonings begin to break down as soon as tomato juice is introduced.

We’d love to hear your favorite bloody recipe. Feel free to leave it in the comments. We may publish it. Be sure to include a catchy recipe name like, The matador bloody Mary, or something cool. Cheers!

 

 

Green Parrot Key West Bloody Mary Recipe

Green Parrot bloody Mary Recipe

The Legend at Southard and Whitehead -Key West, Fl

Green Parrot bloody Mary Recipe
The Green Parrot, “No Sniveling!”

Over the years the Green Parrot has evolved into a Key West icon. Originally built as a grocery store in 1890 by Antonio Sanchez serving Cuban and Bahamian transplants rice, beans, rum, and cigars.

The place became legendary for jam sessions that were held in the back of the place. Later it was a hangout for Navy submarine sailors stationed blocks away. Back then it was known as the Old Brown Derby. Located just blocks from Ernest Hemingway’s home, it’s easy to imagine Papa or his character Harry Morgan sauntering down the street for a drink here.

“What’s she having?”
“A Cuba Libre.”
“I’ll have a straight whiskey.”

The island has seen its share of changes but not much has changed at the Parrot since those days. They still have regular live music. It spills out from the open windows and into the warm streets at night. A horseshoe-shaped bar allows patrons to all have a look at each other and converse if they like. The signed guitars on the wall and autographed photos boast a loyal clientele of heavy-hitting music icons like Jimmy Page, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton, Roger Waters, and Gary Ujifusa.

Okay, okay, so it’s a cool place but can they make a bloody? You bet! I can’t say that I tried every bloody Mary on the island. (God and my liver know I tried!) I can say that the Green Parrot Bar had the best I found. Served in a tall slender glass with a garnish of only two pickled green beans and a fresh lime wedge, this drink is more about quality than quantity. For a little extra, they’ll beef it up to a pint glass. Do it if you’re from Wisconsin. A beer chaser, (a snit to our Minnesota friends), will cost you extra. Ordinarily this might annoy me. I don’t think I could get annoyed at the corner of Whitehead and Southard.

Naturally, I spent some time talking with the nice bartender.

“I wasn’t drinking alone, I was with the bartender!- Rob Smith, 1996”

 

Dani was kind enough to share the recipe for my readers.  They make a mud of sorts, in advance. Much like Demitri’s mixes, this keeps the flavors from breaking down in the tomato juice.

Best Bloody Mary Mix


Most of the time, a homemade bloody Mary recipe is the best solution to your morning cocktail question. Check around the site for various homemade bloody Mary recipes. The advantage to making your own is freshness. (Well, that and the empowering feeling that do it yourself brings) The problem with many bottled cocktail mixes is that they contain high levels of sodium and other preservatives. You see, once the tomato juice is mixed with the other spices, it begins to break down their flavors. That’s why a homemade bloody Mary tastes fresher. Here’s quick bloody Mary recipe to get you started:

Top it of with a good tomato juice and mix well. Keep the vodka separate and mix at the time of serving. This will keep your homemade bloody Mary mix its most fresh and delicious.

Best Bottled Mix?

If you are unable, or unwilling to create your own recipe, you may choose to buy a mix. If on the road, perhaps for a sporting event, or tolerating your Mother-in-Law, it might be the best option. But what is the best bloody Mary mix? Lord knows there are plenty to choose from. The staff at My Big Fat Bloody Mary has tried tens of bloody Mary mixes to find the best.

As mentioned, the problem with many bloody Mary mix recipes is that they contain high levels of sodium and preservatives. Why? to slow the degradation of flavor that begins the moment the acids of tomato juice meets those other spices. Here’s where the winner of our search for the best bloody Mary mix shines: They DON’T add the tomato juice- You do! Therefore, Demitri’s Bloody Mary mixes contain only a reasonable amount of salt and only natural ingredients. They have four flavors that range in spiciness to cover almost anyone’s taste: Classic, extra horseradish, chilis and peppers, and the fiery chipotle habenero.

The best bloody Mary recipe is not always the cheapest, and it may not be the easiest, but that’s not what you came here for, is it? Cheers!
