Best Bloody Mary Mix Recipe
I picked up this recipe many years ago from a bartender friend who was renowned for his Bloody Marys. I think the beef bouillon gives it an added dimension in flavor. It's still the best I've ever had, and it is also a great addition to soups and even as a non-alcoholic refreshing drink -- better than V-8 or that Mr. and Mrs. commercial product. This recipe makes a gallon. Once you taste it, you'll probably enjoy it even without any alcohol.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 (46 ounces) cans tomato juice
  • 1 (10 ounce) can beef bouillon
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely-ground fresh black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon Accent seasoning (MSG), optional
  • 4 ounces lemon juice
  • 1 (5 ounce) bottle Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco sauce to taste (for heat)


Combine tomato juice, beef bouillon, pepper, celery salt, Accent (if using), lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco sauce. Mix thoroughly. Refrigerate.

Yield: 1 gallon

In New Orleans we used this mixture to make a drink called ""Bloody Bull"" - because of the Beef bouillon. Makes an excellent drink and it was spiced up nicely. Also had celery in the drink along with a spicy green bean too.
