Bloody Mary Ingredients
I recommend starting with a plain tomato juice and seasoning it yourself to your personal tastes. Spicy or not, it’s up to you!
I season my homemade Bloody Mary mix with a combination of lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, horseradish, hot sauce, garlic, cajun seasoning, black pepper and salt.
Then to compliment my spicy Bloody Mary recipe, I like to garnish it with something pickled (olives, pickled okra, etc.), a celery stalk and a sweet Curly’s Pork Rib.
Curly’s Pork Ribs are beyond perfect for a recipe like this because they are expertly smoked for hours and ready to go in the refrigerated prepared meat section of the grocery store!
You just have to heat them up in the microwave, grill or oven and they are ready to go to serve on top of your cocktail.
No one wants to have to smoke ribs all day just to use as a garnish for a Bloody Mary — who has the the patience for that?!
