A loaded up bloody mary

I am going to end this Bloody Mary series with a BANG! Usually, we just recap what we have done for the past several weeks (we will do that too), but today we have a bit extra. While we did make a classic Bloody Mary already, I realized that we have constructed a full from-scratch bloody mary recipe and we are going to share that!

From-Scratch Bloody Mary

We made our own tomato juice, hot sauce, beef sticks, pickled eggs, and celery salt. We really have constructed a drink that is almost nearly from scratch. So, if you want to go the extra mile and make a killer Bloody Mary that is really one of a kind and unique, we got you covered!

Could We Have Done More?

Yes. We could have made our own horseradish from the root. Or maybe pickles. We actually have our own pickles from the garden this year, but that is kind of a hard one to share and a bit intensive for the likes of a post like this. Plus, they are well out of season right now for us. It is ok, though. We made a dang unique Bloody Mary that I am really proud of!
