Bloody mary thread

There are very few things better than a good home made bloody on Sunday mornings. Whats everyones recipie? I'm still trying different recipies to see what I like best.

So far I like the classic blood mary...

Low sodium Tomato juice (not v8)
Crushed black pepper
Celery salt
Horseraddish
Fresh squeezed lime juice
Tabasco
Worstishire
Cheap vodka

I make it in a martini shaker with ice cubes. Garnish is usually just a pickle

When I need a Bloody Mary to settle my hangover and make my eggs taste less like the bottom of an ashtray - I don't have time to get fancy.

This (Daily's Thick and Spicy) + mid-grade vodka + ice. Sometimes I crush up a little Advil in there as well.



If on the other hand I'm driving to Tony's house with Ed - I rather enjoy his take on things. There was vodka and Bud Light Clamato and secret herbs and spices and love. Lotsa love. ...and that's what works.

Short of a proper Bloody Mary bar at brunch - I can't see myself caring enough to make one proper all by myself.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Ha - What a day and idea - Lets go wrench on Dirt Bikes (well, stand above Tony and say things like, "yep, looks good to me" and "oh yeah, right there?") and drink Bloody's the entire time and not let a silly thing like driving to Plainfield from the City and back get in our way of a smooth groove had by all

I assembled the Road Bar and had Mr & Mrs T's Thick & Spicy and used the Bud Light Clamato (tip I picked up in Toronto) to cut it like baby laxative in the purest of pure go go flakes - Then I added some A1 Sauce, Worcestershire Sauce and some Tabasco - Pretty nice lil Sunday actually

If brewed in the friendly confines of my own kitchen wearing nothing but a thong, purple velvet cowboy hat (George Costanza Approved) my KISS Replica Boots and my shortie robe, I'll get all sorts of whacky with brewing my own sauce which contains:

- Tomato Juice
- Seasonings and such (think Celery Salt & Crushed Red Pepper)
- Bullion Cubes
- Jalapeno Juice
- Dill Sauce
- Bacon Bits
- The Above Mentioned Road Bar Ingredients as well
- And whatever else tickles my fancy at the time

Oh and always just use Mid Grade Vodka - Cheap gives headaches and expensive is a waste as you are killing the taste anyway

Party On Wayne.

All of mine start with glass of ice, Worcestershire, celery salt and cayenne pepper and green olive or two. Then I’ll pour about 1/3 – of the way up the glass with booze (displaced by the ice of course), splash some hot sauce over the liquor and then top off with mix and either a pickle or some pickled asparagus I have in the fridge.

I’ve actually prepared myself a sampling before of a few different versions of the bloody using different kinds of alcohol. I’ve tried with gin (I have a very flavorful gin that goes well here), tequila (Bloody Maria), and also with whiskey. Gin gets to be a little overpowering with my usual ratio of booze to mix so needs to be toned down a little bit, the tequila usually gives it a nice zest, and whiskey adds just that little bit of oak/smoke/standard whiskey flavor that you’d expect.

I usually emphasize the spice/heat with my drinks, but I had completely forgotten about adding a little lime. That should round out the flavors pretty well - thanks for the tip!

Im liking the bacon bits idea. I tried a little cracked off piece boulion cube before and didn't care for it. Might try it again with the bacon bits.

I also want to try cayenne pepper instead of tabasco

I was trying to come up with a Wasabi recipe - but I could never get it quite right.

I might have to try some of the recipes here and see what I can come up with. Bloody Mary is a drink I've not perfected by any stretch. Though one common thread in mine is lots of green olive juice.

So I think I figured it out. I found this recipe and tried it out

http://www.whas11.com/community/Bloo...149014745.html

I followed the recipe exactly and it was absolutely god awful. The winners of that contest must have gave the article bogus details. It was like drinking a terrible steak marinade. I drank one glass and poured the rest down he drain. I felt like someone was playing a joke on me it was so bad.

But I did like how the tomato paste thickened it up and I did like the Montreal seasoning so I changed a few things. It came out perfect. Seriously, If you like bloodys at all, go make this recipe. The flavors and the ratios are spot on. I made one big jug and I've been drinking it without vodka every morning. Its so good

3 ounces tomato paste (1/2 small can)
1/4 cup Worcestershire
1 Tbsp Montreal steak seasoning
1 tsp celery salt
Juice from 1 whole fresh lemon
Juice from 2 whole fresh limes
2 tsp horseradish
25 clicks of fresh cracked black pepper
2 quarts of low sodium tomato juice (1 jug)

Mix in a big juice jug with a wire wisk.

Add Tobasco to taste in each individual glass when you pour....and vodka and ice too obviously

Eric
