UV Blue Morning 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
Of all the UV Vodka flavors I was challenged with, I knew the UV Blue Raspberry was going to be the most challenging. This is not a flavor one normally thinks of when crafting a bloody Mary.

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….

Ingredients:UVBlue Challenge

  • 3 Ounces Sacramento Tomato Juice
    2 Ounces UV Blue Raspberry Vodka
    Splash of Green Tea
    1/4 wedge each; Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon, and Lime
    6 to 10 Fresh Raspberries
    Pinch of Cayenne Pepper

Instructions:

  • In a stout pint glass, muddle the raspberries
    Squeeze in Grapefruit, Orange, Lemon, and Lime
    Add cayenne pepper to taste
    Add tomato juice and UV Blue vodka
    Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, pour in mixture
    Shake vigorously
    Pour back into pint glass and float green tea over top and serve.

UV Lemonade Bloody Radler

UV Lemonade Bloody Radler Recipe

Developed as part of the UV Vodka Challenge. Greg was given four UV Vodka flavors and tasked with creating a unique bloody Mary recipe for each

Listen Now:

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!

After smelling and tasting the UV Lemonade I started thinking of the popular German drink, the Radler. A mix of lemonade and beer, this summer favorite allows Germans to drink throughout a hot summer day without all the effects of a full strength beer.

I went to work making a light refreshing summertime bloody Mary recipe. Doubling down on an already fresh taste, I added fresh squeezed lemon. I love fresh cracked pepper with lemon. I gave a few turns of the old mill….

Episode 16 – UV Vodka Challenge

Special Review – Greg Crafts Four Unique Recipes for UV Vodkas

uv flavors

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.

The Flavors

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…

So it got a bit….sloppy- I was drinking 190 proof grain alcohol. It’s a good thing we record these sessions- there’s NO WAY I’d remember what happened otherwise…

This Dec. 30, 2013 photo shows bottles of Everclear, 190 Proof grain alcohol, for sale at a grocery store in Madison, Wis. A bill in the state Assembly would ban the sale of 190-proof alcohol like Everclear, out of concerns about its potency. (AP Photo/Scott Bauer)

Bloody Mary Chip Dip

Chip Dip Recipe – Savory Bloody Mary Flavor

Game Day Bloody Mary Chip Dip Recipe

Getting ready for the game I found myself craving chips and dip. Since it was game day, and game day ends in “y”, I had bloody Mary ingredients on the counter.  A light went on.

After a few revisions, I’ve crafted what I and others believe to be a delicious and savory bloody Mary chip dip recipe with a kick. Try it out, share with friends – let me know what you think in the comments below.
*Note: My first run at the recipe featured mayonnaise. Plain yogurt won out in the final recipe. It’s lighter and better compliments the citrus.

Greg’s Famous Bloody Mary Chip Dip

Ingredients:

8 oz plain yogurt

8 oz sour cream

2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce* For extra kick, try Demitri’s chipotle habanero seasoning

2 Tbsp prepared horseradish

2 Tbsp Sacramento tomato juice

1 or 2 oz finely minced jalapeño peppers

1 tsp celery salt

1/2 oz fresh lemon juice

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

1 tsp fresh cracked black pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder (or to taste)

*Note: 2 Tbsp Demitri’s Chilies and Peppers Bloody Mary Seasoning can be used in place of Worcestershire and celery salt

Instructions:

In a medium mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Mix thoroughly, cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. (Consider making the night before) Crack a bit more pepper over the top before serving. Garnish with lemon wedge and celery stalk. Great with corn chips, crackers, or your favorite potato chip.

Don’t forget the beer chaser!
