Bloody Mary drinks trump a Mimosa any day in my book thanks to their rich tomato flavor and addition of everything in your pantry and spice cabinet. Today’s recipe is for an easy Bloody Mary Mix that you can create with items you probably already have in your home. This Bloody Mary Mix can be enjoyed with vodka or without and garnished with delicious green olives and celery stalks for stirrers.
Thanks to the kiddos being in school during the day, my husband and I have been enjoying day dates instead where we can save on the babysitter and I have more time to really enjoy being leisurely in the kitchen.
I decided one week to test a variety of breakfast recipes from our French Breakfast Donuts to these Quinioa Berry Breakfast Bowls to the Bloody Mary, and my husband took the day off so we could sit around and brunch all day long while watching a movie on the television at home.
It was an inexpensive date that yielded breakfast treats and snacks all week long and tasted far better than anything we would enjoy when dining out. The bonus was that I never left my pajamas. Doesn’t everything taste better when you are in your pajamas?
I am a little picky about my Bloody Mary so it can be a gamble when dining out if the Bloody Mary will be to my liking. I like it spicy, but not too spicy. I also like a little bit of seasoning, but I don’t like it to be gritty. This Bloody Mary mix is my favorite because it has just the right balance of spices, heat, and has a good balance of flavors, especially when left overnight in the fridge so that the flavors can all blend well together.
I hope you can give this Bloody Mary Mix a try! It is a great recipe to have tucked away for your next brunch especially since a big batch can be made the day before along with an overnight strata or quiche. This is effortless entertaining, truly at it’s finest!
