Bloody Mary's

Bloody Mary’s
(about 12 drinks)


1 can (46 oz.) Tomato Juice (good quality)
1 ½ oz. A1 Steak Sauce
1 ½ oz. 57 Steak Sauce
½ tbsp. Celery Salt
As needed Hot Sauce (your favorite, your quantity)
24 oz. Vodka (good quality & from the freezer)
2 Fresh Limes, each halved and then quartered
¼ cup Kosher Salt
12 Celery Stalks (longer than the glass is tall)


Combine the first 5 ingredients and mix well.  Refrigerate until cold and needed.  When it is time to make the drinks, stir the Bloody Mary mix well.  Take a 12 oz. glass and wet rim with a piece of fresh lime.  Dip the glass in the dish of salt and then fill with ice cubes.  Pour 2 oz. of vodka in glass and then fill to within 1 inch of top with the Bloody Mary mix.  Squeeze a piece of lime in drink and drop lime in.  Add a piece of celery as a stir stick and enjoy.

Note:               If you are not into Vodka, it works for Gin lovers too.

Ideas for Future Effort

Gina’s Super Bowl Punch
(just shy of 1 ½ gallons)
(adopted from The Neely’s)


1 bottle (1 liter) Vodka (good quality)
3 bottles (12 oz.) Mexican Beer
3 cans (6 oz.) Frozen Limeade, thawed
3 bottles (1 liter) Club Soda
3 Fresh Limes, optional for garnish
Ice Molds/Rings for punch bowl, optional


Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large sealable container and mix thoroughly.  Refrigerate the mixture until cold and ready for service.  Slice the limes into wheels for garnish.  Place ice molds and lime wheels in a punch bowl, fill with the punch mixture and serve.

Note:               If using a beverage dispenser with a spigot, use ice cubes instead
                           of molds/rings to keep mixture cold.

Note:               Gina recommends using Corona but I prefer Pacifico beer for a
                           good Mexican beer.  It is just a difference in personal taste.

Ideas for Future Efforts


  1. Definitely going to try the Bloody Mary's. If I make the whole batch, will it keep a while in the fridge, or is it best if fresh? I'd like to make a glass a time, but do you have a scaled down recipe?

    1. Once you make the this recipe, it is good in the refrigerator for a day or two. Recipe can easily be cut in thirds to make just 4 drinks. Remember if trying to make just one drink at a time, tomato juice is double the amount of vodka. The other ingredients are just to personal taste. Enjoy.
