After a night of exceptional celebration, many find themselves compromised and confused. Allow us to guide you.
A splitting headache and an overwhelming feeling of malaise call for the restorative magic of the bloody Mary. This recipe will provide much-needed nourishment. Down a couple of aspirin with a big glass of water and gather the following:
Fill a stout glass with ice. Add all ingredients, Roll between glass and cocktail shaker several times until fully mixed and chilled. Crack a bit more black pepper over the top, along with a pinch of celery salt. Garnish with whatever looks good in your refrigerator. We like pickled asparagus, olives, celery and cheese. Serve with a beer chaser.

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.

6 oz Tomato juice
2 oz UV Vodka
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp Cracked black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper or 1 tsp Tabasco sauce

Now coat the ice in Worcestershire sauce. Pour UV vodka over ice until, well, until you think it’s enough. (2 ounces is safe) Now top with Sacramento brand tomato juice, cover, and SHAKE VIGOROUSLY. Pour into a large glass, crack a bit more pepper, and squeeze fresh lime over the top. Garnish with celery stalk, pickle, and olive. Serve with a small beer chaser.
Special Review – Greg Crafts Four Unique Recipes for UV Vodkas
The UV Vodka Challenge
Where it started I can’t exactly say. I was talking with one of the marketing guys from UV. They wanted to send us a sample I think. He asked which flavor would be best for a bloody Mary. I shot my mouth off and said I could make a good recipe from any of their flavors.
A week later a box containing four random flavors appeared at the offices of My Big Fat Bloody Mary Podcast.
UV Regular– ok, I knew I could handle this, but I wasn’t sure which way to go with the recipe at first. After several tries I developed a special recipe for this four times distilled, carbon filtered vodka. Read more…
UV Sriracha– This one is unique but sriracha is a flavor that blends well with tomatoes. I was pretty sure I could craft something delicious with it. Read more…
UV Lemonade – Here’s where it started to get weird. Lemonade is not exactly the flavor most think of when mixing a bloody. However, fresh lemon is one of my favorite bloody Mary ingredients, and I’ve been leaning toward a lighter, more juicy bloody Mary this summer. No problem. After two tries I had a great mix! Read more...
UV Blue Raspberry– Ok, this one had me worried. I knew the gang at UV were chuckling when they tossed this one in the box. Blue raspberry?? I kept my cool and began to think. I could try to shoehorn this tasty berry flavor into a conventional bloody Mary. Maybe with enough spice I could “bury the berry.” Nope, instead I decided to celebrate the berry. I went to work creating a light refreshing cocktail suitable for a day out sailing. I balanced the savory properties of Sacramento tomato juice with the fresh bold flavors of grapefruit, orange, lemon, and lime and added a dash of green tea. It was fabulous. Read more…
