Over the years of drinking socially I’ve gone from cheap wine (really cheap wine) to mixed drinks like a fuzzy navel to wine coolers to wine to Select 55 beer to Bloody Marys.
I think I’m staying at Bloody Marys. After all the years of drinking socially, I think I finally found my signature drink….and it’s best if I make it myself.
I buy a decent vodka….I’m not set on a brand. I will buy what’s on sale but only of the mid priced vodka. I think that’s one thing that makes them good…but the other ingredients, yep, that’s the KEY.
I don’t have exact measurement so you’ll have to tag along in the pictures to see what I do.
I take a glass…any size. I put it 3/4 full of ice.
Then I use these two as a base. Put in however much vodka you like. Mine is typically about a shot worth. You can make it virgin with no vodka if you prefer.
I use Mr. and Mrs. T’s Bold and Spicy. If you don’t like much spice then get the original flavor of mix.
I fill it more than 3/4 of the way full.
Next…refrigerator items…these….Olives, pickles and lime. I want the pickles and olives more for the juice than anything else. I add a pickle, an olive and also some juice of each. I LOVE olive juice. I am all the time feeding people olives just to make sure I have enough juice.
It should be about as full as the bottom picture now. Then come the spices…. I love tajin. (Here’s an Amazon LINK if you can’t find it near you) It’s a Mexican spice.
I also add worchestire sauce, celery salt and pepper. YUM!!
Next you need a glass…dump from glass to glass to mix it up…YUM!!
…and there you have the best Bloody Mary. THE BEST. Well at least I think it’s the best. Everyone does have an individual taste when it comes to mixed drinks. I’ve practiced and found this to be the best combination.
If you give it a try you’ll have to let me know what you think.
