Bloody Mary

I love a good bloody mary.

We went to visit our friends who had just bought a condo in Boston. They invited us for Sunday brunch.

Part of the menu was bloody marys, and boy were the good. They used a bottled mix. We liked it enough to go out and buy a bottle for ourselves.

If you happen to have a jar of pickled asparagus to garnish it, better yet.

It's from Stonewall Kitchens: Stonewall Kitchen

I love a good bloody Bloody Mary, the garnish is all part of the fun!

Try, a Claussen dill pickle spear, a big fat shrimp, a lime wedge, a sprig of fresh basil, grape tomatoes, a pickled peperoncino, a colossal queen stuffed olive, a frond of fresh dill weed, the list goes on and on all summer long!!!

Stonewall Kitchens is headquartered in York, ME, right off I-95 at Exit 7. Their store in York has a huge selection of their products, and you can sample a lot of them. It's really become a big business. Their prices have grown over the years as well.

I checked and they have it at the larger Wegman's stores in my area.

A little spendy for me, we'll see!

If you are making your own Bloody Mary mix forget the tomato juice and grab a can of the best crushed tomatoes you can find. The thicker tomato product will hold up better when you add the other ingredients. It will also hold up better in the glass as the ice melts into it.

Bloody Mary

Sounds like a good mix, Andy. Nice idea about the crushed tomatoes, AB.

Up at da lake, we Canucks and part-Canucks loved our Bloody Caesars, made with Clamato juice along with the usual suspects. A pickled green bean, as served in some places in NOLA, is also good. I don't drink bloody anythings anymore because of the sodium, but they were all delish.
