Old Bay Bloody Mary for a Holiday Brunch

December 12, 2010

Recently, our best friends came over for brunch, they brought the bagels, so I asked what drink they would like me to provide. Now, Fee just texted “Bloody Mary’s.’ But after being her best friend for 14 years, I know what she really said was ….

“Bbblllllloooooooooooooddddddyyyyy Maaaaaaaaarrryyys.”

Although the name does not stir up the lovely image of holiday brunches, the color and taste is full of holiday spirit. In fact, I sort of got excited about the prospect of making them from scratch. Out of basic mixology curiosity, I refused to get the mix. Seriously, there are some fantastic ingredients in Bloody Marys, why get the mix. Oh, and feel free to add more or less vodka and other ingredients, the recipe below is just a basic measurement We used this recipe to kick off December, although this recipe is a few weeks old, I thought I would share my version of Bloody Mary’s.

Old Bay Bloody Mary

  • 8 cups of tomato or vegetable juice
  • 1 cup of chilled decent quality vodka, we use Sky
  • 1 tb vegan worchestire sauce (Annie’s makes a brand found at most grocery stores)
  • 1 tb brown sugar
  • 1 tb horseradish
  • 1 tb Old Bay, and more for the glass
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • Celery or Olives for garnish
  1. Take all the ingredients, except for the celery and olives, mix together with a giant wooden spoon
  2. Let sit for an hour or so, for the flavors to meld together.
  3. When you serve, turn the glass upside down and place it in a bowl of water. Then place the glass on a plate with old bay and spin.
  4. Pour the Bloody Mary’s into the glass and garnish with celery or olives.
