If you’re looking to learn more about urban folklore, horror movies, Mary of Tudor, or Lady Gaga’s big hit, keep moving! This is not a site devoted to English history, or pop culture. No, what the staff here at My Big Fat Bloody Mary is passionate and prolific about is the best bloody Mary recipe.
This is not to say that these other interests cannot be enjoyed with a delicious mix of tomato juice, vodka, celery salt, and Worcestershire. Indeed, they should be! What the reader will find among these pages though is far more important than some mass-murdering queen, a nightmare you had, or a bodacious blonde belting out dance-ready songs. Follow these bloody Mary drink recipes and you’ll be invited to all the cool tailgate parties. You’ll also learn to drink early in the morning without looking like a drunk! (Celery is great camouflage!)

How do you make a bloody Mary you ask…?
The obvious answer is big and fat. After all, this is not my little wimpy bloody Marys.com, is it? A good bloody Mary recipe should be; cold, spicy, bold, and fresh. The perfect bloody Mary is all of these things with plenty of booze.
You can find plenty of 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.
Okay weed hopper, here’s your easy bloody Mary recipe:
- 6 oz Tomato juice
- 2 oz Vodka
- 1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
- Lime wedge
- 1/4 tsp Cracked black pepper
