Booze+Arrows | Bloody Mary

Okay, so we aren’t over here pretending like we invented the damn thing, but hey… When you make a good Bloody Mary, you gotta document it.
The feelings on the taste of the Bloody Mary are about as mixed as the drink is. Here are the things we’ve discovered about Bloody Mary’s while embarking on this drinking adventure: 
1) If you love them, then you love them.
2) If you hate them, then you really hate them.
3) There is no gray area with these bad boys. 

We also discovered why we love making them in October:
1) It goes along with the spooky, Halloween-feel, and we at B+A are ALWAYS festive.
2) It is the greatest way to start feeling like “you” again the morning after all of those Halloween parties.


One of the coolest things about the Bloody Mary is that it makes you feel like a very skilled bartender for just a few minutes. The ingredients list is a bit longer than the Kalimotxo and the process requires a bit more effort, but we promise the payout is huge!


What you’re about to read will seem like a lot. However, it serves six so don’t fret (…or it serves 2 gals who can handle their vodka).

What you’ll need:
6 limes, juiced
3 tablespoons grated fresh or prepared horseradish (okay, what’s going on here)
2 quarts tomato juice, chilled (chill out, it’s just tomatoes)
2 tablespoons hot sauce (spicy spicy)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (goodluck saying this with your hangover)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (however little/much you want)
1 ½ cups vodka, chilled in the freezer (now we’re talking…)
Celery stalk, for serving
Cucumber spears, for serving
Fresh cilantro, for garnish

If you want to get funky like we did, throw some green olives for a garnish too!


The bartending process: Combine the lime juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, tomato juice, hot sauce, and a dash of salt and pepper. Muddle it all together with a wooden spoon.

In a separate glass filled with ice, poor the vodka and follow it with the concoction.

Throw in a celery stick, cucumber spear, fresh cilantro and green olives and call it good.

Cheers, B+A babes!
