Bloody Mary Mix

By Gary Hancq SidEFied

Talk to anyone and they'll tell you they make the Best Bloody Mary Mix, or they know someone who makes the Best Bloody Mary Mix.

Well -- I'm here to tell you I make the Best Bloody Mary Mix -- along with the rest of them.

The first prerequisite is a high fiber, thick and hearty V8 or Tomato Juice.

No watery -- thin Bloody Mary for me!

The rest is the add-ins and the garnishes are the topping.

Skoal, Salute, To Your Health!

A great accompaniment to my "Breakfast Egg Rolls". Which see.

Directions Step-By-Step

I like my Bloody Marys served in a 12 oz. Old Fashioned Glass. With 1 1/2 to 2 oz. Vodka. But-- Let your personal preference rule as far as glass choice.
Mix all ingredients together well in a large jar or a pitcher. I use a green antique juice/water jug with lid, so the contents can be pre mixed and kept in the fridge for a few days. You could use Real Lemon in lieu of the Real Lime or both.
Serve with Ice or without. I prefer mine well chilled without ice. Others prefer the fact that the ice waters down the drink a little after awhile.
GARNISHES: Celery Stick, Pearl Onions, Small Mushrooms Raw or Pickled, Cheddar or Swiss Cheese cubed to 1/4 inch, Ham slced 1 inch wide and rolled and speared, Hard Salami cubed to 1/4 inch or a 4 to 6 inch Beef Stick or String Cheese Stick. Or a Cherry Tomato or two, or a small chunk of Pickled Herring. Get Creative. If you can Imagine It, it will probably work. How about a Dill Pickle Spear?
FOR THE RIM: 1. Mix the listed ingredients and store in small jar with lid. 2. Pour a small amount on a plate and wet the glass rim and dip and spin in Mix. After use I let excess Mix dry and place back in jar for later use. Fill glass and add the Garnishes. Enjoy!
When they are ready. Give me a call.
NOTE: I at times add in an 8 to 10 oz. can of Tomato Sauce(not paste)for additional thickener and fiber.
OOOPs! In my original I listed Garlic Salt and Onion Salt for the Rim Mix. It should have been Garlic and Onion Powder. I'm a low salt cook usually. I have corrected it.

    Elsie, Cammile and Peggi, Thanks for the comments. Hope you enjoy. I can salsa in pints, but haven;t tried canning tomato juice. Though friends give me a quart or two each year. They are great with homemade tomato juice. Imagination is the limit, Some like a little horseradish in their mix. Happy Cooking, Gary

    I can salsa also. Gary, at the risk of sounding stupid, what is bitters (angostura)? I don't drink much & when I do, I drink frozen daquiri's.
