  • Bloody Mary Bar

    There are so many different variations on a bloody mary, so let your guests decide by setting up a MYO “make your own” bloody mary bar with an array of ingredients – spices, flavors, and garnishes, etc…

    1. Rim your glass with a meat rub, salt, or any of the suggested below.

    2. Start your drink with a base – can be traditional or non-traditional.

    3. Add your liquor.

    4. Add other ingredients/flavors (can be the classics – horseradish, worcestershire sauce, lime juice, hot sauce, and cracked pepper).

    5. Garnish your drink with everything but the kitchen sink!
