Party cocktail, part hangover cure, and all canvas for culinary creativity, the Bloody Mary is a must for any early daytime event. The simple cocktail is notorious for becoming a meal with the addition of garnishes. Having a Bloody Mary Bar at your event lets guests get creative with all their favorites. For a little fun, have guests take photos and create a best looking bloodie photo album on facebook, letting friends “like” their favorite!
FOR THE COCKTAIL:
Miss Mary’s Bloody Mary Mix Bold and Spicy
Vodka of choice
For people who don’t like vodka you can do Rum, known as a Bloody Pirate
FOR THE GARNISH
Pickles – from spicy to sweet (my favorite is
Claussen) and even pickle juice.
Olives, the standard pimento or elevated stuffed with blue cheese or jalapeno
Meat sticks, find them at super market delis or your local meat market.
Cheese, get a variety like cheddar jack and pepper check, some people love spray cheese to fill celery sticks!
Salt for rim or celery salt for an extra kick. You can also find specialty “Rim Shots” made with bacon, herbs and spices.
NEXT LEVEL BLOODIES
Make it a meal with these additional elements,
