For optimal results, make this Bloody Mary Mix the night before so the flavors have time to combine for maximum impact. Pulse all ingredients in the blender, making sure the garlic gets completely chopped. I believe it is the combination of Pickle juice and fresh dill that really make this Mix stand out. Customize to your preference with additional hot sauce and worcestershire sauce at the end. **This will make a pitcher of bloody mary mix- enough for 4 bloody marys.
2 cups regular v8, 2 cups v8 bloody mary
- 8 oz vodka, or to your preference- I like to add mine to the glasses not the mix, then pour the bloody mary mix on top and stir so people can make theirs as strong or not as they prefer.
1/4 cup pickle juice- I recommend Claussen
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 heaping tbsp horseradish
2 cloves garlic
juice of 2 limes
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp celery salt
1 tsp Crystal, Louisiana hot sauce
1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 heaping tbsp fresh dill
- bbq rub- optional- for rimming glasses
- Garnishes- see notes below
Combine all ingredients and pulse in a blender making sure the garlic is fully chopped and pulverized. Let sit in the refrigerator overnight before serving. This recipe will make one pitcher of mix, about 4 bloody marys/.
