Classic Bloody Mary Reviews

  • I made a pitcher of these. Used a 46oz. of vegetable juice, 1 cup; and a couple of splashes of Vodka, and celery seed. And the rest of the seasonings to taste. Id say close to a Tbls. Very good recipe.

  • Good, reliable formula for a basic Bloody Mary, just waiting for your own personal spin and additions, whether its horseradish, Clamato, steak seasoning, lemon pepper, Old Bay or beef broth, any number of which weve tried. On this occasion we merely substituted celery salt for the sea salt and threw in a couple of spears of pickled asparagus.

  • I made this for brunch and it was very good. Only change I made was that I did not add the olives.

  • This is a very good recipe,though mightI add the following ingredients.I add a Tbls.of juice from a jar of dill pickles,plus a dash of celery salt.Wonderful tasting Bloody Mary.

  • This is the same way we make it at work except we use celery salt around the rim of the glass and I like extra is delicious

  • Great drink - however I added some horseradish to mine.

  • This was my first time mixing a Bloody Mary, and it tastes just like the one I ordered a restaurant a few weeks ago...very tasty :)

  • Not enough flavor...add to tweek a lot.

  • Tried it per the recipe, very good. Second pitcher added Sriracha in place of Tabasco, a dash of celery salt and 1/2 teaspoon of lime juice.

  • Excellent I just added a splash of lemon juice. It made all the flavors pop more. Definitely a keeper

  • VERY NICE I always made pitchers of these and it was nice to just make one (or two) of these just for me. This will be my go to,recipe

  • This worked out very nice I used a dash of celery salt and quite a bit more hot sauce but the taste was right on. Thanks for posting this.

  • These were great. After sampling these, Id made a pitcher, we doubled the vodka. I also served it with a slice of crisp bacon.I got rave reviews and they looked so great.

  • Rim it with Celery Salt and use Clamato Juice instead of Tomato Juice, and you will have a Canadian Caesar Give it a try Eh?

  • A good basic start to a Bloody Mary, but for us it needed to be kicked up a notch.

  • Very nice, simple bloody mary recipe. Had to use what I had on hand, which meant regular V8 juice instead of spicy. I just added a couple extra dashes of hot sauce. Perfect cure for a hangover. Cheers

  • I used 1.5 oz vodka, 1 small can spicy v8, the Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces and topped it off with reduced sodium v8. Shaken with ice cubes and strained into a highball glass filled with ice. Much less sodium and easy to assemble.

  • This is a great recipe for a classic drink. Obviously people have different takes on types of vegetable juice to use or what kind of vodka is best.

  • Loved it

  • Good Start, Missing Horseradish ;-)

  • Too salty

  • I used a Bloody Mary mix, and substituted black olives forthe green olives.

  • 3.2.18 This is a good starting point, but doesnt represent what I think is a really good Bloody Mary. For the most part, it just tasted like Spicy V-8 Juice, and it definitely needed more heat for me. I added a little horseradish, a little beef broth, more worcestershire, a healthy squeeze of lime juice, and additional Tabasco. I have a favorite Bloody Mary recipe on this site, and although this was OK, I think Ill just stick with that one.

  • I made the bloody mary mix but since I dont like vodka I used beer instead and made bloody bulls. They turned out excellent.

  • I added a bit more hot sauce and extra olives and it was perfect

  • New to bloody marys but this just tasted like spicy V-8. I added more Worcester sauce and that helped but I wont do this recipe again

  • Yum plus add pickled onions

  • My husband and I made him one of these. He threw in some oilves, peppercinis and horseradish. He thought it was pretty darn good.

  • We liked this Its a basic recipe, so dont expect anything more from it, but we like basic sometimes, so it worked for usThanks for sharing. :)

  • Not the best but very good. I always use Sacramento tomato juice and celery salt and a squeeze of lemon or lime.

  • Its really good. But I substituted a pickle for the olives since I am allergic

  • Very good

  • Nice one

  • Just perfect

  • Very tasty

  • My go to Bloody Mary recipe. I use just plain tomato juice instead of v8 (because I hate v8) but keep everything else the same.

  • Just needed a basic Bloody Mary recipe... made this one exactly as written... perfect Thank you

  • I added a bit of Tajn for extra spice and lime juice. Came out grate.

  • I used original V8.

  • I make these occasionally after a long day at work. They are very good and I really enjoy them.

  • I used Zing-Zang instead of tomato juice. And used Demitris bacon rim shot (its a spiced rim salt). Super simple, Super delicious

  • This was exactly the type of Bloody Mary I wanted. Classic and delicious

  • Way too much salt. Next time I try it I will start with a pinch of sea salt and go up from there until it has the right balance. Also, I like mine spicy so I added much more hot sauce.

  • Easy to make and you can switch up ingredients, I used regular v8 this last time,everyone enjoyed it.

  • Good starter. Added my own Cajun seasoning (instead of salt), lime juice, horseradish, and a tiny bit of soy sauce.
