Bloody Mary (By the Pitcher)

Total Time

My husband brought this recipe to me from our local paper last weekend. He is a Bloody Mary lover and I wouldn't want this one to get away. Dan'l says this recipe is a winner!! Why make one glass, when you can make a pitcher full? This recipe makes 4-5 pint sized servings.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine tomato juice, Clamato juice and vodka in a large pitcher and stir to blend.
  2. Add remaining ingredients (except hot sauce) and stir with a wooden spoon until all is well blended.
  3. Taste, then add hot sauce depending on how spicy you like your bloody mary (my husband likes plenty of spice!).
  4. On a small plate, combine coarse salt and Old Bay seasoning.
  5. Run a lemon or lime slice around the rim of your glass, then dip the rim into the Old Bay/salt mixture.
  6. Add ice to your glass (if desired) and pour in the bloody mary mixture.
  7. Garnish with desired items.

These were stellar! Doubled the recipe and served it at brunch this weekend. Multiple generations were there, so I served it without alcohol, and put a bottle of vodka and garnishes next to it. Very quick and easy to put together, and so yummy that I can see making this regularly.

Excellent recipe and it made serving drinks a breeze at our brunch today. I doubled the recipe making it "as is" except that I put a little more vodka in it. I mixed everything together except the vodka the night before and added the vodka just before the guests arrived. (Loved that!) A doubled recipe filled a gallon pitcher. This recipe has GREAT flavor and isn't all that spicy so I left the Tabasco bottle out for those who wanted to spice it up more. I asked all the guests what they thought of the new recipe and it was thumbs up all around. It's a keeper. Thanks Bev!

OH.... MY.... GOD!!!! This is soooo good! It tastes just like the Bloody Mary's at Ray's Boathouse! Much better than the other blood mary recipes I've tried here!
