Can you make a shoe smell?

Mixing together a few liquids and pouring them into a glass presents such challenges that it's worth having a contest?

Um, no.

And while we're at it, f*ck chili cook-offs, man!  That's just bullsh*t!  i don't understand how anyone can enjoy that, so it's obviously not enjoyable.

Best Bloody Mary I ever had was at the Hotel St. Marie in New Orleans.....nothing else has ever even been close.

Damn you Subby..now my mouth is watering

V8 + Vodak + what ever little touches you like.
 
2014-02-16 12:44:38 PM  
There's no such thing as a great Bloody Mary.

Mix up a Caesar, and now yer talking.

And the garnish is key? Um sorry no. Booze is the key.

Yes, you should always pay for the highly marketed overpriced neutral alcohol that you aren't going to taste when mixing it with tomato juice...

I hate it when people feel the need to take something simple and perfectly good as is and make it fancy.  Do you know how to ruin a hamburger?  Have a gourmet chef prepare it.  They feel the need to muck around with pizza as well.  Jerks.
 
2014-02-16 12:47:39 PM  
If you finish your Bloody Mary preparation with an eyedropper, my grandfather would laugh at your sorry panzy-ass. I would just call you a douchebag.

/Douchebaggery is high in the Bloody Mary segment right now.

I was in the bar-car of the AKRR train last summer when the bartender claimed she could make me "the best Bloody Mary I've ever had".  Turned out to be Grey Goose, V-8, a shot glass of Tabasco, 4 green olives, a celery stick, 2 pickled green beans, and 2 cocktail onions.

/was pretty good, but not the best

felt more like a salad then a cocktail

For perfect douchebaggery, combine 1 part prole + 2 parts money.

Dont forget the spinoffs the bloody Maria(tequila), the Bloody Derby(bourbon), the Bloody Murder(gin), the bloody pirate(dark rum) the bloody Molly(Irish whiskey), the bloody fairy(absenthe), the brown mary(whisky)

If a drink-making contest is going to cut into your drink-drinking time, give it a miss.

The best one I had was in Cle Elum, WA. I don't remember the name of the place, it was over 20 years ago.

Hemingway Bloody Mary Recipe

To a large pitcher (anything smaller is "worthless") add:
1 chunk of ice (the biggest that will fit)
1 pint of vodka
1 pint chilled tomato juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 jigger fresh lime juice
Pinch celery salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
Pinch black pepper
Several drops of Tabasco
"Keep on stirring and taste it to see how it is doing. If you gets it too powerful weaken with more tomato juice. If it lacks authority add more vodka."
 
2014-02-16 12:57:54 PM  
You'd think farkers would unanimously condone this contest since it promotes drinking vodak
 
2014-02-16 12:59:54 PM  
Here my recipe for the perfect morning starting Bloody Mary:

3 parts gin
 
2014-02-16 01:00:08 PM  
The Perfect Bloody Mary

What you'll need:

Tomato Juice.
Tobasco
Black Pepper
Vodka.

First, fill half the glass with vodka. Next, take the tomato juice, and chuck it in the trash. Do the same with the tobasco and black pepper.

Enjoy.
 
2014-02-16 01:00:12 PM  
Bacon and shrimp is just cheating.  I'm going to shove a new york strip in a glass of tomato juice and win this next year.
 
2014-02-16 01:00:18 PM  
Pffff making Blood Marys are easy, I just mix ketchup with gin and add seven-up then I garnish it with mini marshmellows and a carrot. Just make sure all your ingredients are lukewarm when you make them

That except V8 instead of regular tomato juice is about my recipe, garnish with celery, a dill spear,and a strip of crispy bacon
 
2014-02-16 01:01:33 PM  
I was always a bit of purist with my mix
Tomato juice (obviously) mixed with V-8
fresh squeezed lemon juice
coarse horseradish
tobasco
lee & perrin's
black pepper
cayenne pepper
dash of A-1
squeeze of lime
I'd sometimes use a little clamato and old bay

The trick was in my proportions.  I somehow made it so the spice was on delay.  It would hit right after you got the full flavor only only hang around for a little bit.  I don't know how I did it, because i'm not a chemist.  I  never wrote it down or measured anything out, even the booze (though I made mine strong)  All by taste and intuition. The people seemed to like it.

make sure you sous-vide the strip first.

In Canada they have a thing called the Bloody Caesar.  Much better.

And can we cut it out with the pail of garnishes?  It's just more stuff to spill.  If I want a bloody salad I'll order a bloody salad.
 
2014-02-16 01:05:10 PM  
"Garnishes make the Bloody Mary, say the experts."

Really?  Just who exactly are these so-called experts and what is the basis for their expertise?  Because they sound like a bunch of pretentious douchebags. 

Personally, I think that a good Bloody Mary should be judged based on how it tastes without all the garnishes.  If you cannot make a decent tasting Bloody Mary then no amount of garnishes will make it taste good.  Sure, you might distract the simple-minded folks with some elaborate garnishes, but your Bloody Mary will still taste like crap.
 
2014-02-16 01:09:19 PM  
These contests are so effing subjective.  The best Bloody Mary, please no such thing just put tabasco sauce in it and I'm good. Lots and lots of tabasco sauce is better.
 
2014-02-16 01:13:38 PM  
Why do we feel the need to make everything more pretentious than it needs to be?

Vodka, tomato juice, Tabasco, celery stick. There, that's the best Bloody Mary. Adding shrimp? Dripping something out of a dropper on it? Completely unnecessary.

/sure other stuff is good in there, I like L&P in mine and a ton of pepper, line juice, even a jalapeño occasionally but it's not necessary and doesn't make it better than the classic, just adjusted for my taste
 
2014-02-16 01:15:01 PM  
Give me a mirror, a dark room and the phrase "Bloody Mary" said three times, and I'll show you how to make a killer Bloody Mary.
 
2014-02-16 01:16:06 PM  
During one overabundance of tomatoes in our garden we made fresh tomato juice and turned that into bloody marys.

Much better than canned juice and if you really want the deliciousness of fresh tomatoes just add vodka - no need to mask the canned flavor by adding in all sorts of spices, though we found a little hot pepper and/or basil was nice.

I wouldn't recommend making tomato juice from grocery store tomatoes - not only will it taste lousy but it will cost a lot.

I work part time as a bartender, and I have to say that I have to shake my head whenever someone comes in and orders a Long Island Ice Tea with Grey Goose and when I ask them about the other ingredients they just say, "Well is fine."  Now, do not get me wrong, I know a few people who could tell if the vodka in that drink was well or premium, but I seriously doubt that most people could.  Once you start adding in mixers and mixing with other alcohols whatever quality you get with a premium liquor is quickly lost.  Of course, I do not consider Grey Goose to be a premium vodka.  It is good, but not top shelf quality.

Everyone in New Orleans knows how to make a great Bloody Mary, I think.  I even had an outstanding one in the Marriott.

2014-02-16 01:29:50 PM  
I like a simple yet spicy Bloody Mary.

Into a pint glass put some celery salt, Worcestershire, horseradish, ground habanero pepper, and a bit of Dave's Insanity Sauce.  I then add some vodka and stir up.  I then pour in some chilled tomato juice and stir it up.  If I fee like a garnish I put some olives or pickled pearl onions or whatever else I want in a bowl on the side.

A virgin Caesar is also known as a Bloody Shame.

Over and out.
 
2014-02-16 02:02:27 PM  
2 shots vodka
1/4 can of beer
3 shakes of worchestershire sauce
as much tabasco/shriracha/texas pete as you like
Clamato not tomato juice

Years ago I was on a quest for the greatest Bloody Mary and to date my favorite was from the Tiki Bar on Islamorada in the Florida keys.  At least from a bar, that is.  The ones I make myself are by default better because they come out exactly how i think one should taste.  Your mileage will no doubt vary.

/The Hilton in Short Hills, NJ, also makes a pretty darned good one.  Their Sunday brunch - especially on Easter - is stunning.
 
2014-02-16 02:24:50 PM  
Great.  Now we're going to have a whole mess of pretentious douche bags who will insist they can taste the differencebetween two drops of Tabasco vs. three

Pfff. You use supermarket pepper sauce in your Bloody Mary? Farking amateur, go back to Applebee's.

/pfff
