How to make the best Bloody Mary

UV Vodka Bloody Mary Recipe

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.

Green Parrot bloody Mary Recipe

Green Parrot Key West 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.

You can find plenty of drink mixes on the other pages of this site. Before you get to the recipe at the bottom of the page, 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.
