Bloody Mary Recipes

Serve something a little different for game day this year. Try one of these delicious Bloody Mary recipes and have some fun with your garnishes!

Bloody Mary RecipesWe’re less than a week away from game day and I always like to think of ways to switch up the traditional Super Bowl inspired menu. Sure, the classics are great, don’t get me wrong, but I like it when I can serve something that’s a little bit unexpected. It helps make each and every gathering a little bit different and who doesn’t like a surprise every now and then?

Beer is a football staple. I’m a huge football fan, and I don’t usually turn one down when I’m at a game, but for the Super Bowl, why not take things up a notch and serve a brunch classic? The ever popular bloody mary! It pairs perfectly with game day snacks and there are sooo many ways to customize them for each one of your guests. (You could even set up a DIY bloody mary bar!) Today I’m sharing two different bloody mary recipes with you, just in case you want to try something a little different than the traditional bloody mary recipe. But, if not, I’ve got the traditional covered too. ūüėČ

Bloody Mary RecipesOne of my favorite parts of the bloody mary isn’t even the drink itself….shameful, I know. It’s those delicious garnishes that have grown in popularity and gotten out of control in the absolute best ways possible. There’s just no way I can say no to a mini grilled cheese, extra crispy bacon, or mini burgers, when they are sitting on the side of my glass.

But before you nail those amazing garnishes, you’ve gotta start with the drink first! These bloody mary recipes are yummy and you can adjust the flavors and heat, as needed, based on your preferences. Plus, the green bloody mary is packed full of veggies for those of your friends or family that want to be a bit healthier. (I wish I had that will power).

Bloody Mary RecipesBloody Mary RecipesTraditional Bloody Mary –

(Serves 2)

  • 4 oz. Vodka
  • 12 oz. Tomato Juice
  • 2 Tsp. Horseradish
  • 1 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • Ground Pepper
  • Tabasco Sauce, To Taste
  • Celery Salt
  • Kosher Salt
  • Celery Stalks, Crispy Bacon, Large Dill Pickles, and Mini Grilled Cheese Sandwiches for Garnish

In a shallow dish or plate, combine celery salt and kosher salt at equal ratios. This will be used to line the rims of your glasses, so if you are making a bigger batch, plan ahead.

In a separate shallow dish, add water. Tip your glasses upside down and dip the rims into the water, then twist into the salt mixture.

In a pitcher, mix vodka, tomato juice, horseradish, worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco sauce. Add pepper to taste.

Fill glasses with ice and pour in bloody mary mixture. Garnish with celery stalks, crispy bacon, pickles, and mini grilled cheese sandwiches.

Bloody Mary RecipesI picked¬†less than healthy garnish choices, like crispy bacon and mini grilled cheese sandwiches, for these bloody mary recipes, but you can add your own touch with your own favorite snacking sides. I don’t think anyone would complain about a burger on their glass…especially on game day!
 If you do want to stick to a beer themed beverage, this Michelada is a great choice too!
