If you love Bloody Marys, chances are pretty good that you love it for the spicy, savory flavors… and the salty, snacks garnish! Although the Bloody Mary cocktail traditionally includes alcohol, a spirit free version can hit in the same way. Here are a few hot tips for creating the perfect alcohol free Bloody Mary:
Tip 1: Make the mix the star of the show
Not all Bloody Mary mixes are created equal; in fact, many store-bought options are pretty bad. If you’re making a no-alcohol drink, you want to make sure you’re using a flavorful mix. If you prefer a spicy mix, or lean more into the horseradish world, make sure you're into the mix you are using! It will be the key flavor components.
We recommend starting with 6-8 ounces of tomato juice and 1-2 teaspoons of any of our Demitri’s seasoning, but you can always build the flavor with a few (or a lot) more dashes. To mix, gently pour from one glass of ice to another glass until well combined.
Tip 2: Don’t skimp on the garnish (and make them fun!)
What other beverage can say it’s both a drink and a snack? We love an over-the-top Bloody Mary garnish. You can go the charcuterie route with a variety of cheeses, meats, and olives. Or make it extra APPealing with mini versions of your favorite appetizers, from grilled cheese and quesadillas to these incredible habanero poppers.
Tip 3: Points for presentation
Put on your chef hat (it’s called a toque) and make your Bloody Mary look as good as it tastes. Artfully arranging your garnish, making skewers, and even choosing a fun cup can elevate your Bloody Mary—whether it’s alcohol-free or not! Top it all off with Demitri’s Rimshot Rim Salt for a beverage that truly shines. Need some inspo? Browse our Instagram, then snap your own pic and tag us!
