This last weekend my buddy Mark came out to visit Dana and I.  Mark was my roommate and co-worker while I was in college.  We bartended together at a college bar for 5 years.  It was a blast.  Mark still bartends and makes a mean bloody mary.  His secret is a spice concentrate that together makes one mean bloody mary.  We made a triple batch for the weekend.  As you can see, in Wisconsin they add everything but the kitchen sink to the bloody mary.  We topped ours with a pickle, celery, dash of celery salt and a beef stick.  Yep, a freaking beef stick.  It was amazing!!

Mark’s Bloody Mary Mix – (makes 20-25  Bloody Mary’s)

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 1/3 tbs garlic powder
  • 1 tbs onion powder
  • 1 1/3 tbs pepper
  • 2 tbs celery salt
  • 1 tbs cayenne pepper
  • 2 2/3 tbs horseradish
  • 1/2 cup  Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbs Tabasco sauce
  • 1 1/3 cup Franks Red Hot

Mix together and keep refrigerated for up to a week.

Immersion Blender

To make a Bloody Mary, add 1-3oz of the mix to a glass and top with tomato juice.  The more mix you add the spicier the Bloody Mary.

Mark's Bloody Mary

We made a ton of these over the weekend and they are great.  Hands down one of the best Bloody Mary’s I have ever had.

The ingredient list looks like a lot, but it is killer.  Plus, it makes a ton of bloodies.
