Perfect Vegan Bloody Mary

If you have been lucky enough to spend time in New Orleans, you know that they have a major passion for this savory breakfast libation. Every bar, restaurant and pub in the city has their own version, and much like a family Red or Mole Sauce, no two recipes are exactly the same.

After painstakingly tasting multiple recipes (such a sacrifice! #justkidding), we have come up with what we feel is pretty great representation of a classic Bloody Mary and we hope you enjoy!

We discovered an ingredient that is completely optional but highly recommended: topping your bloody with a splash of light lager. It lends an effervescence to the drink that we love.

Note: Ingredients are for one drink. Double as needed!

  • 1 Shot Vodka
  • 3 oz Bloody Mary Mix
  • ½ oz Portlandia Foods Vegan Worcestershire sauce or our Spicy Worcestershire
  • ½ a lemon, juiced
  • ¼ tsp Horseradish
  • A splash of your favorite hot sauce
  • For non-vegans: ¼ oz Demitris Bloody Mary Seasoning 
  • A few good shakes of the following seasonings: Cajun seasoning, onion salt, celery, salt
  • Optional: 6 oz light lager (Corona premier is a good one)

Combine all the ingredient (except the beer) over ice and stir vigorously. If you wish, top with the beer and your garnishes of choice. Santé!
