Bloody Mary (By the Pitcher)

"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."

Ready In:




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

    Delicious, Bev. Will make again; mixed some wasabi sauce with the horseradish instead of powdered. What a taste! Served on the deck--Nice spring weather!!--with a wonderful Blue Cheese Spread and crackers.

    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!
