Bloody Mary Bar Tips

Our Bloody Mary

Our famous flavors taste even better when they’re paired with a bold, satisfying beverage. Start by choosing a classic Bloody Mary mix, or a spicy version if you like a little extra kick, then mix with vodka if desired (we like Tito’s) ). And no Bloody is complete without garnishes! Try adding a sausage snack, cheese stick, or a skewer of our jalapeño stuffed olives alongside the traditional celery stalk for a cocktail with major flavor.

Get Party-Ready

Take your next party to a bolder level by treating your guests to a gourmet Bloody Mary bar. It’s easy to pull together in no time.

  • Open bottles of Bloody Mary mix and vodka and place in a central location.
  • Set out glasses and a cut lime. Guests can run a piece of lime around their glasses before dipping into your favorite Bloody Mary rim salt for a delicious blend of salt and spices with every sip, or you could use regular coarse ground salt.
  • Serve beef sausage snacks and cheddar cheese sticks along with skewered olives as garnishes, as well as your classic favorites like celery stalks, bacon slices, or dill pickle spears
  • Pour mixed nuts into small bowls nearby for easy snacking.
  • Invite guests to craft their perfect Bloody Mary and enjoy!
