Recommended: Charleston Bold & Spicy Bloody Mary Mix

Drinks Jed Portman Post a comment

That Charleston Bold & Spicy Bloody Mary Mix is more complex than your typical Bloody Mary mixer is evident from the list of ingredients on the bottle. A conventional base of water, tomato paste, and Worcestershire sauce meanders on to apple cider vinegar, roasted vegetables, roasted beef, anchovies, habanero peppers, and other seasonings numerous enough that I won't list them here. A sip is as crowded, flavor-wise, as the ingredient list. More

This concept of adding clam juice to make a brinier Bloody Mary originated, and still remains popular, in Canada.

Drinks Heather Arndt Anderson 3 comments
