Varieties Of Demitri’s Bloody Mary
Made from 14 natural* ingredients, Demitri’s seasonings are available in three flavors:
Classic Bloody Mary Seasoning
The Classic has a nice amount of pepper and is a good basic start. But the more we had of the other two flavors, the more we preferred them.
Extra Horseradish Seasoning
Love horseradish? So do we, and we enjoyed this flavor very much (see photo on Page 2). It’s spicier than the Classic, with distinct horseradish flavor and heat, but not as hot as the next mixer.
Chilies & Peppers Seasoning
This flavor adds extra chilies & peppers into the original mix. The spiciness is just right: You get a titillating zing without getting zonked. There’s a real art in doing this, and Demitri has done it well—it’s our favorite flavor.
Rim Shot Spiced Rim Salt
For those who want some added flavor and texture with their Mary, this blend of sea salts and spices adds a decorative, aromatic and favorable accent to the rim of the glass. You’ll see a photo of how interesting it can look on the next page. Sea salt has more flavor and less “saltiness” than table salt or kosher salt, so don’t worry about making your drink too salty.
*We are not in any way criticizing Demitri’s for the following, but we want to point out that the American version of Worcestershire Sauce is made with high fructose corn syrup, while the original, British version uses sugar. Americans are welcome to complain to H.J. Heinz Company, which owns the Lea & Perrins brand, that Americans deserve the same quality product as the Brits. Contact William Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, H.J. Heinz Company, 600 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15219-2702. While the consumer watchdog and advocacy group, Center for Science in the Public Interest, claims that HFCS is not a “natural” ingredient due to the high level of processing and the use of at least one genetically modified (GMO) enzyme required to produce it, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has never bothered to create even a basic definition of “natural.”
