The Perfect Bloody Mary Recipe for Thanksgiving Brunch

The Perfect Bloody Mary Recipe for Thanksgiving Brunch

Whether you’re team mashed potatoes or sausage stuffing for life, the Thanksgiving table has something for almost everyone. With Thanksgiving “dinner” being more of an early-bird,  lunch/dinner combo, you’ll want to give your guests something to nibble on before it’s time for the main event. 

We propose a Bloody Mary bar! Watching the game, getting back from the trot, or just done being in the kitchen all day – the DIY Bloody bar is a life saver. Set up a make-your-own station so guests can sip, snack, and keep themselves occupied until dinner is officially served. Beef stick straws and pickles from the summer garden – there’s bound to be something for everyone! Options with or without the alcohol are a nice touch, or maybe add a red beer selection? The world is your oyster.

Here’s our classic recipe, made in bulk for the DIY Bloody Mary table.

Recipe
Serves 8. Add 2-3 ounces of Demitri’s Bloody Mary Seasonings to 1 quart of tomato juice and 1.5 to 2 ounces of vodka per drink. You can leave out the vodka from the base and let guests add it themselves if desired—it’s delicious without the booze!


Ingredients


Directions

  • Moisten one half of the rim of each glass with a lime wedge, then press each into a saucer of Demitri’s Rimshot. Half-rims or “smiles” that go down the side of the glass are nice because someone can get a sip with or without salt.
  • Combine Demitri’s Bloody Mary Seasoning with tomato juice, vodka, and ice in an extra-large pitcher. Use a spoon to gently combine all the ingredients.
  • Pour a serving into each glass.
  • Squeeze lime on top. Garnish with fresh herbs, or garden pickles for a festive flair.
