Why Use Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix?


Zing Zang bloody Mary mix has become one of the top cocktail mixes in the country. It’s convenience cannot be overlooked.  It’s flavor? Heck, it’s not bad.  But let’s face it: It’s not that good either. I’m always disappointed when I see the bartender grab that green labeled bottle when I order a bloody Mary.

  1. I agree homemade is the best. My wife likes zing zang because she gets off work late at night and its quick.

  2. Perhaps you want to make terrific drinks at parties so you would like to brush up on your
    bartending skills. The mostly used tool in bartending is the shaker because they are essential
    in mixing liquors. What’s key in this situation is that you don’t ever let your customers see you sweat.

  3. Best Bloody Mary mix ever . . . . makes great red beer, pretty good straight out of the bottle, all by its self . . . better than a V-8,

  4. yes it is…. i have 3 friends that have this mix in their fridges…… and at least 4 bars in the milwaukee area,,,,, its a good mix…. too bad its from illinois!!!!!!
