Bloody Mary Recipe

Enjoy this classic Bloody Mary Recipeਊnd see that I have also included a number of variations of this popular beverageꂾlow ("Virgin Mary," a "Bloody Shame," or a "Bloody Virgin"). Just leave out the vodka.

A "Bloody Mary" is sometimes thought to have been named after Queen Mary I of England.

But from the reading I have done I think a New York bartender named Petiot may have developed the drink in the 1920's or 1930 and named it after a girl (Mary) that he knew from the "Bucket of Blood Club" in Chicago.

Bloody Marys with Seafood

Happy New Year! If you rang in the new year with a bit too much to drink, have no fear, I&rsquove got your bloody mary hangover cure! This recipe for bloody mary with seafood is made with a simple bloody mary mix, old bay salted rim, Hangar One Straight Vodka and topped with seafood garnish for that salty bite you&rsquore craving from a hangover.

A big thank you to Hangar 1 Distillery for sponsoring this post and keeping The College Housewife up and running!

This year I&rsquoll be spending New Year&rsquos with my close family. We always spend the evening getting into a heated poker game and ring in midnight in a big corny family hug.

If you plan on ringing in the new year in a big way, hopefully with lots of champagne, then you will need an epic hair of the dog to keep the party rolling. If you needed any more reason, New Years Day is ALSO National Bloody Mary Day!

If you&rsquore throwing a New Years&rsquo brunch or party, a bloody mary bar is a great addition for your people!

The actual Bloody Mary mix is fairly simple, so feel free to get creative with all of your crazy garnishes!

It&rsquos New Year&rsquos, so we went a bit fancier with prawns and crab legs but you can stick to the classics with olives, lemons, and pickled vegetables.

In my bloody mary mix is tomato juice, fresh citrus juice (lemon or lime), Worcester sauce, hot sauce (optional), old bay seasoning and Hangar 1 Straight Vodka. I love using Hangar 1&rsquos vodka because it&rsquos super balanced and makes it versatile for sweet and savory cocktails, i.e. Bloody Mary&rsquos AND fruity sangrias.

Ingredients for a Bloody Mary with Seafood:

  • Tomato Juice
  • Lemon or Lime Juice
  • Hot sauce
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • Horseradish
  • Hangar 1 Straight Vodka

Bloody Mary Seafood Garnishes:

  • Prawns (cooked)
  • Crab Legs (cooked)
  • Olives
  • Cornichons
  • Tomatoes
  • Celery Sticks
  • Lemon Wedges
  • Fresh Dill

Do Bloody Mary&rsquos help hangovers?

Sort of! Ah, the age-old theory. I&rsquom no hangover doctor but there are some great reasons behind bloody mary&rsquos helping hangovers. Basically, if you&rsquore hoping for this cure, make it extra spicy.

Spicy drinks not only help speed up your metabolism but they also help you produce more sweat which is great for ridding the extra alcohol and toxins in your system. This will also make you more thirsty, which will cause you to drink more water and hydrate which is key for a hangover!

Holy hangover! 4 Bloody Mary recipes to try after New Year's Eve


Jeffrey Lee Puckett visits the Outlook Inn to have bar manager Megan Hook whip him up a Bloody Mary.

January 1 is National Bloody Mary Day and that's no accident. New Year's Day, largely seen as a celebration of fresh beginnings, is also very much about recovering from New Year's Eve and, rightly or wrongly, a Bloody Mary is universally regarded as a hangover cure.

Megan Hook agrees, with qualifications. Hook is a second-generation barkeep at Louisville's Outlook Inn and knows a lot about drunks, hangovers and Bloody Marys.

"I think any kind of alcohol helps with hangovers," Hook said, laughing, "but yes, they will. Especially ours."

The Outlook Inn's Bloody Mary has been a Louisville institution since the tavern opened its doors in 1974. Owners Ralph and Linda Bridgers, Hook's parents, introduced the drink on opening day and it has risen to legendary status. Ralph Bridges created the recipe and has never changed it, Hook said, which has endlessly pleased the bar's loyal clientele.

During the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and Highlands Fest, bartenders can barely keep up with demand, said Hook, the bar's manager. And each Bloody Mary is made from scratch, with no premixing allowed.

"We probably make hundreds," she said. "We even got to the point where we raised the price a little just to deter orders because we're so busy, and people don't care. They're like, 'I'll take 10.' "

Louisville's Against the Grain is a past winner of best Bloody Mary at the Finlandia Bloody Mary contest, held during the Kentucky Derby Festival, and they do things a bit differently.

"One of the main problems that I have when I go out and order Bloody Marys is that I feel like you can't taste the alcohol in them," said Celeste Downey, who created the restaurant's Bloody Mary recipe, "and when you do, it doesn't really add a whole lot as far as flavor characteristics go."

Against the Grain macerates garden vegetables in Finlandia for up to four days. Major Peter's mix is used as a base and it's augmented by a house sauce, the ingredients of which are never disclosed, which means you won't be able to replicate these at home.

"When people ask what's in it," Downey said, "I tell them what's in the mix but not the ratios."

Secrecy and no small amount of confusion is a hallmark of the Bloody Mary, which has several origin stories. The most widely accepted version has French bartender Fernand Petiot, who worked at Harry's New York Bar in Paris, inventing the Bloody Mary in 1921 and then bringing it with him to America, where he worked at New York's King Cole Bar. There, it's called a Red Snapper.

New York's Club 21 also claims ownership courtesy of comedian George Jessel, who decided to mix vodka and tomato juice. Petiot never denied Jessel's story but clarified that Jessel's drink had only two ingredients while his recipe, crucially, added salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce.

"You can overthink it," Hook said. "A lot of people mess up because they get too fancy."

If you're feeling a little rough, here are a few recipes that might work in your favor. Good luck, and drink some water.

Outlook Inn Bloody Mary

Outlook's bartenders wing it a bit, but Hook generally uses two or three shakes of Worcestershire sauce, a few drops of Tabasco, and a couple of dashes of celery salt and pepper. Hook thinks the vodka plays such a minor role in the flavor profile that any reasonably good brand can be used.

  • 1.5 oz of your favorite cheap vodka
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Celery salt
  • Black pepper
  • Tabasco sauce
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • V8 vegetable juice
  • Peperoncino

Take a pint glass filled with ice and start with the vodka. Add seasonings. Top it off with the V8 and pour into a large shaker and go at it. Dump it all back into the glass and top with a peperoncino.

Against the Grain Bloody Mary

Remember, AtG keeps the ratios to themselves so if you want to make this, just consider whatever happens your personal spin.

Finlandia vodka infused with blistered bell peppers, jalapeño, smoked horseradish, peppercorn, coriander, cilantro, and lemon peel

Mix, made with Major Peters, puréed roasted red bell pepper, cayenne pepper, olive brine, Sriracha, house BBQ sauce, and smoked black pepper

Garnish with house pickles and pork belly bites. Shake well with ice, pour over ice.

Red Snapper, King Cole Bar, New York

Nothing fancy here, but the pedigree is certainly solid.

  • 1 oz Belvedere vodka
  • 2 oz tomato juice
  • 1 dash lemon juice
  • 2 dashes salt
  • 2 dashes black pepper
  • 2 dashes cayenne pepper
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce

Shake well, strain and serve in a tall glass with ice and a lemon wedge as garnish.

The Publican, Chicago

Esquire picked this as the magazine's favorite Bloody Mary – nay, perfect Bloody Mary – and it's a handful. It requires that you make the mix and let it marinate for one to four days, so this one is for the patient.

  • 1 qt. tomato juice
  • 1/4 inch horseradish, chopped
  • 1/2 anchovy
  • 1 tsp. Sriracha
  • 1/2 tbsp. Chinese hot mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire
  • 1/2 lime, fresh squeezed
  • 1/2 lemon, fresh squeezed
  • 1 tbsp. vodka
  • dash of black pepper
  • dash of sea salt
  • dash of celery seeds

Blend that mess until it's smooth, adjusting the heat and saltiness to taste, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours, although three days is considered best. It's enough for around six servings. To make the drink, simply pour 2 ounces of vodka into a shaker with ice, add 6 to 8 ounces of mix, shake and pour contents into glass. Garnish as desired.

Where did the term ‘Bloody Mary’ come from?

No one is 100% sure how this cocktail got her name, but the speculations are amusing to note!

The obvious answer is Queen Mary Tudor I of England, known for her bloody reign vs. the Protestants in the 16th century. But what would an English queen have to do with a vodka drink?

The more likely story involves 1920s American bartender Fernand Petiot. He created the drink at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, mixing up equal parts of tomato juice and vodka. A patron suggested the name based on a girl named Mary at the Bucket of Blood Club in Chicago, of which the drink reminded him.

In the 󈧢s, Petiot brought the recipe with him to New York, where the reception was met with negativity. Customers asked him to spice up the drink a bit, so he experimented by adding black pepper, cayenne, Worcestershire, lemon and a generous splash of Tabasco sauce.

Thus was born what we now know as a Bloody Mary.
