An Un-Muddied Bloody Mary

Discussion in 'The Connoisseur' started by rumblefish, Sep 2, 2009.

  1. Before I cook down the tomatoes I grow for making sauce, I remove the seeds and all the juice surrounding them. With the same food-mill I use to strain the cooked tomatoes, I run the seeds through to extract the liquid.

    This year I grew San Marzano, Beefsteak, and Cherry Grande.

    The juice, pretty translucent.

    To the vodka pictured here, I added fresh horseradish from my garden last winter and black pepper corns. (So, I started making this drink last March:D )

    A few dashes of Tabasco and a wedge of lemon finish it off.

    Not as filling as a traditional bloody mary.
     
  2. Mmmmm, I'll have one please. Maybe two.... ;)
     
  3. Looks good, an efficient and delicious way to use everything. :)

    That actually sounds great :) I hate when I am told by a recipe to remove the seeds... the seeds, actually the juice that comes with them, is the best bit!

    A friend turned me onto Svedka a couple years ago and I haven't stocked any other vodka since. To think of all the cash I've wasted on the top shelf nonsense. :eek:

    OK Mr Fish, What about the full bodied version??

    Now that you've given us the run down on your Bloody Mary Light please go on to the Works Bloody Mary, the "Kitchen Sink" version. I'm still searching for a home-made version that can compare with those I got once and only once in a bar on Tybee Island, SC. The woman barkeep had moved to Tybee from Bar Harbor, Maine. While riding bicycles around Tybee we took refuge from a rain squall in this old house turned bar. The bar was upstairs on a porch. So there we are just a few dry inches from this squall line coming in from the ocean, swilling down the best BM's I have ever encounterd. These were not the house version. I had asked for one like she'd make for herself. I'm talking grated horseradish, Texas Pete, clam juice, the works. We were the only people in the place so no problem. Man, was I grateful for having asked. Wunderbar! By the time I got back there a year or more later the girl had shipped out to parts unknown and along with her went the formula. What remained was your most unremarkable house Bloody Mary.
     
  7. You know I never gave much thought to the standard, from-the-can tomato juice version.

    Perhaps this thread could act as a repository for favorite Bloody Mary recipes, and their garnishes...:)

    Anyone else like to offer some up?

    Excellent idea Mr. Fish. Maybe that girl from Bar Harbor will see this and share her formula. I hope she's working in some high-dollar place making a killing putting together bloody mary's for the monied.
     

  9. Me too!!!! :D




    may be three even ? [angel] ;)
     
  10. I have had an exceptional bloody mary at a sports bar in Mexico (It had a name like Ray's Sports Bar!) and was just north from those little lobster dinner towns Cabo San Something. They are about 90 -120 minutes south of the border on the Pacific side the dinners were great and we headed up to rays' for the BM's. It was so good my mom had 3 and she wasn't the big drinker at all.

    A family member always used V8 and they had a taste of their own.
     

  11. ...and can you imagine those lobster :D dinner restaurants on the Pacific, and sharing the good times and drinking Bloody Mary with all of our friends? Sheer heaven! :D
     
  12. Yup, I can. That trip was a group of about 40+ of us that rented one of those really cool charter buses to go to Mexico to celebrate a friends birthday, Sam of the Stuffed Sandwich fame. A fine day for all except for those that over-imbibed.
     
  13. Lobster or prawns + Bloody Mary all in one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oooooooooo:D

    then after that lobster salad!

    ...and lobster thermidor for main course too! :eusa_clap

    I like my bloody marys with TONS of horseradish, fresh ground black pepper, and prefer lime over lemon.

    Let me suggest a fantastic Sauvignon Blanc :

    A nice bouquet of ripe peach, honey, and spices. It is round, smooth with a nice freshness in mouth...:cheers1:
