How to Make the Best Bloody Mary
A bloody Mary cocktail can be as diverse as people’s taste. One size really does not fit all. Even companies that produce bloody Mary mixes for retail sale usually offer more than one recipe. Extra spice, horseradish, pickle juice, bacon infused vodka-you name it! Once you’ve mastered the basic bloody Mary, branch out. Try new variations. As you learn how to make a this cocktail, you’ll make some bloody clinkers, I’m sure. But in time you will develop a feel for what makes the best drink. Then, get to know what your friends or customers like, and adjust accordingly. There are a few things that I think should ALWAYS be observed when preparing their cocktail.
Rules of the Road
Always serve it fresh! Avoid making up a large amount in advance to serve at a future date. The acids in the tomato juice will erode the other flavors.
Always serve it cold! It’s important to serve the cocktail cold. Use a shaker and lots of ice. Chilling the drink will also slow the breakdown of the seasonings like celery salt, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper.
Back it up! Finally, always serve the your bloody Mary recipe with an ice cold beer chaser. These are typically served in a small glass, but big glasses are fine too!
