National Bloody Mary Day is January 1! Make sure to celebrate with this spicy bloody mary recipe!



So with January 1st being the start of a new year, people are making lots of new resolutions to make the next year better! One resolution we think we will be making (and actually keeping!) will be to have more Bloody Marys! We like this resolution because we have found ourselves a spicy Bloody Mary recipe that is really tasty! Plus, knowing that January 1 of course is New Years Day, but also National Bloody Mary Day!

National Bloody Mary Day

In all honesty, we didn’t know that January 1 was National Bloody Mary Day until the fine folks at Marmont Vodka sent this a bottle of their delicious Siberian Vodka. But really if you think about it, is there a better day for drinking a spicy Bloody Mary recipe than New Years Day? You stay up late on New Years Eve celebrating and then have to get up! Because you have to get ready to watch football games, eat leftover party foods and recuperate! What better way to recuperate than with a nice spicy Bloody Mary recipe? You just keep your celebration going onto National Bloody Mary day!

Of course we wanted to celebrate National Bloody Mary Day, after all, we are cocktail bloggers! We have another favorite spicy Bloody Mary recipe (check out our Tomato Water Bloody Mary recipe) that we use when it is summer and we have lots of fresh tomatoes. However, with National Bloody Mary day happening on January 1st in the dead of winter, we definitely didn’t have a bunch of fresh tomatoes!  So, we needed a recipe that we could use tomato juice instead of fresh!

Mamont Vodka

Any good Bloody Mary Recipe starts with the vodka so we turned to our bottle of Mamont Vodka. Mamont Vodka hails from Siberia,which is commonly known for its icy weather and history of being the land of the mammoth! Siberia, however is much more, a vast land home to stands of silver birch trees, unspoiled glacier fed streams and fields of winter wheat, all of which are key to making great vodka. Distilled at the Itkul Distillery, which is the oldest distillery in Siberia (in operation since 1868!) Mamont Vodka is made from 100% Siberian winter wheat.







Using 100% winter wheat to make Mamont Vodka yields a spirit that is delicate and flavorful. Vodka made with wheat tend to be very light and crisp with a nice hint of grainy sweetness, and Mamont definitely fits that bill. Mamont Vodka is also extremely smooth by being filtered through charcoal made from local Siberian silver birch. It’s cut with water from artesian springs that are fed from the winter snows. Mamont Vodka has a delightfully crisp flavor that is slightly sweet with a nice dry finish that shows off its high quality.

Mamont was inspired by the discovery of the Yukagir Mammoth, which was found in the heart of Siberia. The founders decided to honor their Siberian heritage by using the Mammoth in their logo and their name (Mamont is Russian for Mammoth!) as well as a tusk shaped bottle (that is absolutely gorgeous!) We were pretty excited to get this bottle on our shelves, as it is stunning!

Spicy Bloody Mary Recipe

With a good starting point in the vodka figured out, we turned our attention to the flavor profile of the Bloody Mary. Since we were using Mamont as our vodka, we wanted to make something Mammoth! Get it?  Ooooh…maybe another New Year’s resolution should be puns!




We wanted something that would have a bit of a spicy kick to help wake up the taste buds and get the blood flowing! We started out with tomato juice and added in some horseradish to bring a little earthy heat. Next, we turned to one of our favorite hot sauces that has a nice spicy bite and a hint of smoke to really bring that rich chipotle and jalapeño spice. Finally, we added a healthy dash of fresh cracked black pepper to bring a little dark woodsy character!

Once we had the spicy component nailed down, we had to add in some other layers of flavor to make our mix really shine. One problem we notice with lots of Bloody Mary recipes is they really only concentrate on one flavor characteristic, be it spice, tartness or a novelty flavor. We love having our cocktails be balanced and have layers of flavor to keep each sip interesting. This means adding in flavors that will help balance the spice and brighten up flavors so that the mix would be awesome!



Spicy Flavors

How did we make it awesome you ask? Well, we added in a little Worcestershire sauce to bring a little umami flavor. The Worcestershire adds just the right amount of salty funk to the mix. It brightens up the flavors of the tomato while enhancing the spicy bits of the hot sauce. Next we brought in a little sweet and sour, adding in some pickle juice from sweet gerkins and a bit of caper juice to add in a bit of vinegar and salt that rounded out the flavors  A splash of fresh squeezed lemon juice added just the right amount of bright tartness to make the whole perfectly mouth watering!

Of course a spicy Bloody Mary recipe needs to be garnished correctly, right?! We served our Bloody Mary’s with sesame and poppy seeds on the rim for a bit of a crunch and flavor.  On top, we added on some grape tomatoes and olives, cause you have to have a snack with a bloody, that’s in the rules!

Does the brand of Worcheshire Sauce impact the flavor? I find there is a difference between French's and Heinz.

I think in this choice it won't affect the flavor of the bloody mary. We actually used the cheap store brand!
