Back to Brunch Basics: The Glorious Return of Bloody Mary

Jun 13, 2023 | Great To Drink | 0 comments

Cocktail aficionados, let’s take a nostalgic walk down memory lane to the realm of the enigmatic Bloody Mary. A revered pick-me-up of yesteryears, she was the royal toast of every brunch table from the swinging 70s through the electric 80s and into the naughty 90s. Sure, our spicy dame fell out of the limelight for a bit, but who among us hasn’t? 

She may not be the star of a raucous night out, but, believe me, crafted with care and bedecked with a treasure trove of garnishes, she’s the queen of day-drinking ice-breakers. Add in our classified recipe #4 Bloody Mary Brim Trim, and you’ve got yourself a cocktail that’ll kickstart any languid afternoon. 

Now, roll up your sleeves and let’s get mixin’! 

Here’s your checklist for two tantalising tipples: 

  • Vodka: 100ml (just over 3oz) 
  • Tomato Juice: 500ml (around 17oz) 
  • Bloody Mary Brim Trim & Mix (A liberal pinch for the drink and a dash more for the rim) 
  • Lemon Juice: 25ml (just under 1oz) 
  • Worcestershire Sauce: Approx. 4 dashes 
  • Tabasco Sauce: Mild or fiery, your call! 
  • Celery & any garnish your heart whispers sweet nothings about 
  • Ice 

Now, follow these steps: 

  1. Add your ice and all the listed ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Just leave the celery out for now. 
  2. Use a long bar spoon to stir it all together. No shaking, please! Tomato juice gets embarrassingly frothy when you shake it, and that’s just not the look we’re going for here. Aim for a harmonious mix instead. 
  3. Put the shaker aside for a mo. Run a lemon or lime wedge around the rim of your glassware and promptly dip it into the Bloody Mary Brim Trim & Mix. 
  4. Strain that delicious concoction into a glass. Top up with fresh ice if needed. 
  5. Now, add your celery stick and whatever else your heart desires. Olives, pickles, even bacon – go wild! 
  6. If you fancy making a day of it, consider a pitcher of Bloody Marys. Keep it chilled in the fridge and garnish as you go. 
  7. Flex your creativity and tag us on the socials @thesaltyrimco. We’d love to see your creations! 

Now, let’s raise a glass to the illustrious, irresistible Bloody Mary. Long may she reign!
