Bloody Mary

No matter what the season, Bloody Mary is one of America’s top three favorite cocktails. Photography© Letizia Spanò | Fotolia.

WHAT IT IS: Bloody Mary seasonings.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: A specialist in the Bloody Mary mix, this company makes it in three ways: Classic, Extra Horseradish and Chilies & Peppers.
WHY WE LOVE IT: When we don’t have time to make our own mix, it’s a great substitute—just add tomato juice. While “our own” benefits from lots of fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice, this is a pretty satisfying substitute.

Bloody MaryDemitri’s Bloody Mary Recipe

Here’s how Demitri likes his Bloody Mary:

Ingredients For One Bloody Mary

  • 1-2 teaspoons of Demitri’s All Natural Bloody Mary
  • 6-8 ounces tomato, vegetable or clam juice
  • 1-2 ounces quality vodka (or gin or tequila, for a
    Bloody Maria)
  • Ice
  • Kosher salt
  • Large lime wedge
  • Garnish (see below)

  1. Bloody Mary Rim SaltGently moisten the rim of a 12-16 ounce glass with the lime wedge, then press into a saucer of seasoned salt or Bloody Mary glass rimmer.
  2. Combine Demitri’s Bloody Mary Seasoning with tomato juice, vodka and ice in a shaker and shake.
  3. Pour the mixture into a highball glass and garnish. Squeeze the lime wedge onto the top of the drink and serve.

Garnishing Your Bloody Mary

There’s no need to choose just one garnish: It’s more exciting visually (and far tastier) to have a glassful, as you can see in the photo above.

Other Uses For Demitri’s Bloody Mary Seasoning

Demitri's is also excellent for marinating, grilling, or to add seasoning to soups, stews and other recipes. Try it as a condiment (the spice mix straight from the bottle) with seafood, eggs, chicken, even pork and beef—anywhere spicy flavors work. Use it!

  • Instead of salt and pepper
  • As a substitute for Worcestershire Sauce (Worcestershire is an ingredient in the recipe)
  • As a marinade, straight or with other ingredients
  • As a spicy dip, mixed with yogurt, cream cheese, sour cream, etc.
  • With seafood cocktail or oysters on the half-shell

Bottoms up! Happy holidays!
