One of my favorite cocktails is a Bloody Mary. But let’s face it—they’re not all great. Usually for me they’re not spicy or don’t have a lot of flavor so I end up making up my own mix.
The holidays are coming up and I’m feeling a bit lazy. I don’t want to spend a bunch of time mixing cocktails. I want all the hard work done for me.
Powell & Mahoney, LTD. makers of high quality and all-natural cocktail mixes contacted me to find out if I’d like to try their Bloody Mary cocktail mix. I’d heard good things and so I said “Um, yes please!” There are a few Bloody Mary options and I chose the Original Bloody Mary Mixer (There’s also a Sriracha Bloody Mary Mixer and a Chipotle Bloody Mary Mixer).
The Bloody Mary Mixer is non-alcoholic (perfect idea for those who want a non-alcoholic drink option) and is made in Vermont. In Indy you can purchase the Bloody Mary cocktail mix at The Fresh Market (Indy and Carmel locations) and Crate&Barrel for around $7.99 a bottle.
Let’s make a Bloody Mary cocktail. It’s so easy.
Here’s the recipe (from the Powell & Mahoney, LTD. Website)
2 parts P&M Bloody Mary Mixer
1 part vodka
Combine in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain over ice into tall “pint” glass.
Garnish what you choose (ideas: celery stalk, slice of lemon, lime wedge, olives, salami, shrimp)
I used a beef stick, celery, tomatoes and cucumbers as garnishes. Hey, I enjoy a bit of a salad with my Bloody Mary.
And, the taste? It’s a Bloody Mary with a kick. Which is totally what I want. There’s plenty of spicy and pepper. If you don’t like a lot of spice or want to dial down the heat you can always mix it with lemon juice or lime juice. I like my Bloody Mary a bit tart (yep spicy and tart) anyway, so I added some extra lemon juice.
p.s. I think the Mixer would be awesome to add to chili or tacos. Just sayin’.
I would definitely purchase Powell & Mahoney, LTD.’s Bloody Mary Mixer again. It’s going to make brunches and holiday parties so much easier. You can set up a Bloody Mary bar and let your guests do the mixing! Looking for a few other cocktail mixers? Check out their site for plenty of mixer options (such as Cosmopolitan, Margarita, Peach Bellini and more!)
