Bloody Mary Mix Recipe

Saturday, January 1, 2022
This is a classic base mix for making a delicious Bloody Mary. This bloody Mary is so refreshing as a virgin drink or you can spike it with your favorite vodka.

This drink is full of freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice and makes it so bright and zingy, then with an added tomato juice, makes a thick rich but not muddy beverage.

We added some horseradish, Worcestershire sauce a splash of tabasco and this will bring the recipe for this bloody mary mix to perfection.

Of course, we also have a non-alcohol version is wonderful but for those who enjoy a spiked beverage do try our recipe. and check out our favorite garnishes below.

We love to serve our bloody Mary with a variety of "Appetizers" for brunch you may like to try some of the ones we choose that go great with this beverage.
