KAREN HOCHMAN is editorial director of THE NIBBLE. Her own Bloody Mary recipe—using Knudsen’s tomato juice, lots of horseradish, Worcestershire sauce and fresh lemon and lime juices—is quite superb.

Mad Pepper Farm’s Top Shelf Premium Bloody Mary Blend

If you don’t want the “texture” of the Freshies mix, a smooth-textured mix is available from The Mad Pepper. Overlaid on a base of tomato paste are fresh jalapeños and other chiles, Worcestershire Sauce and steak sauce, vinegar, crushed orange purée, dried and minced garlic, dried onion, herbs and spices, horseradish and a pinch of olive oil.

The Mad Pepper is both hotter and sweeter than Freshies Original Recipe. Due to the orange purée and some added corn syrup, it tastes as if a dab of brown sugar has been added to the mix. The tomato paste gives it a thicker consistency and mouthfeel. Unlike anything you would make yourself with tomato juice (or purchase in most other mixes), this mix has body. A 4.4-ounce serving has 40 calories.

Both Mad Pepper and Freshies can be used as marinades for chicken and fish. Mad Pepper Farms makes a lighter combination Bloody Mary mix and marinade called Mary-Nade. It’s very good, but we recommend the Top Shelf Premium Bloody Mary Mix for Bloody Marys, reserving Mary Nade for the chicken.
