Bloody Mary Mix

The other day I was watching Booby Flay on something...maybe Rachael Ray's show and he was talking about the best mix for bloody marys...does anyone know what it was...or have a suggestion of their fave?Thanks !

  1. I did not catch the show but I LOVE the Stirrings Bloody Mary Mix, I still add some lemon and a touch more pepper but it is my favorite and I have tried most.

      1. Funny you should ask- I am sipping on a delicious Bloody Mary right now! Our favorite mix ix Zing Zang:

        If you check the list of ingredients, they are certainly better than most. I couldn't believe how many Bloody Mary mixes had high fructose corn syrup as a primary ingredient!

        We ran out of Zing Zang earlier in the evening, and are using V-8 now, and it is pretty good also- just need to add garlic-stuffed olives, salt and fresh ground pepper, celery seed, and some Sriracha hot chili sauce!

          Oh yes, I concur, this is another DELICIOUS mix!

        2. tabasco bloody mary mix is pretty good. best i've tried so far.

          1. Just discovered something else- I'm eating a big bowl of collard greens and cornbread (it doesn't get much better than that!), and on a whim, I added a little of the "pot liquor" from the collards into my Bloody Mary- wow!

              Oh my that does sound fantastic!

                Sounds delicious. If I end up with a mix that has too much sweetness for me I add some olive juice it is really good too, a Dirty Bloody Maru if you will.

                  I've been adding the olive brine forever, too. It really provides extra flavor. I always use a low-sodium tomato juice/V-8 with the brine; otheriwse it's way, way too salty.
