My father-in-law first introduced me to this homemade bloody mary mix. It is very similar to what you'd buy in a store. Made as is, it is very spicy. You can customize it to your taste by cutting back on the pepper and hot sauce; I like about half the pepper and hot sauce. Enjoy this wonderful mix! It is so easy and much cheaper than buying pre-made mix.

Cook's Note

Chill and mix with desired amount of vodka and ice. I've used a mix and store pitcher for home use, and a clean and sanitized 1/2 gallon milk jug for traveling to the lake, etc. One batch fits well in either container.

It was pretty good. Next time I will skip the Beef Consomme (too much sodium) and use a couple Tablespoons of steak sauce instead. Read More

This recipe is pretty much like any other with the exception of beef consume. technically that makes it a bloody bull. I find that infusing vodka with fresh peppers makes for a much more interesting and fresh bloody Mary. Read More

This is the first bloody mary I actually liked! This blows away the store-made mixes which pale in comparison. This mix has just the right amount of heat to it -- not too much heat in the front on the tongue, but enough heat at the back to give it some heat and a kick. The flavor, overall, is very balanced. We used Campbell's low-sodium tomato juice. I made this and let the mix meld in the fridge for about two hours before I mixed it with a shot and a half of vodka. I'm very impressed with this and will certainly make this again. Thanks for posting the recipe! Read More

Very good with a little kick. Warms your belly on a cold wintery night. Will make again and again I'm sure. My husband likes to add this mixture to his beer. Read More

This is an excellent recipe. I have used it for several holidays and gotten rave reviews from my guests. Go easy on the hot sauce and let them add their own fire. Some serving suggestions: cook some medium shrimp and chill then on a long toothpick (I use cut in half bamboo skewers) add shrimp cocktail onion and pimento olive or some other green olive (no black olives) and stick in cocktail glass then add vodka and BM mix...be prepared to be amazed.

Excellent spice. Exactly what I was hoping for. I did use low-sodium vegetable juice instead of just tomato. And I omitted the beef consomme (vegetarian version). Read More

I have used Demitris for a long time but it is expensive I found this to be an excellent replacement and for the sodium conscious substitute a low sodium beef broth from bouillon. I use Better Than Bouillon low sodium and it works great. The beef flavor is important for over all taste in my opinion. Read More

Wow! Loved it :). Took a week off from work while kids were still in school (before their summer break) and had this for breakfast out back by the pool. Ahhh..it was a good week home :) I recommend both, this drink mix AND taking a week off from work while the kids aren't around :) Cheers! Read More

Made this for easter breakfast. Like the distinct taste of the consomme. Not too hot or spicy at all. Followed ingredients exactly. Read More
