UBONs Bloody Mary [+ Giveaway]

ubons bloody mary

The Bloody Mary is THE drink for Sunday brunch. Up until now, I’ve avoided posting a Bloody Mary recipe for one primary reason: they’re not simple. The simplest recipe I’ve found was from The Cocktail Spirit, and it has 9 ingredients: vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, celery salt, worchestershire sauce, black pepper, horseradish sauce, ancho chili powder, and a celery stalk garnish.

When I want a Bloody Mary, I buy a mix and put vodka in it. I’m generally very cautious about using mixes, though, because many commercial mixes contain nasty goblins like high fructose corn syrup or MSG. Usually, Trader Joe’s mix is the one I go with.

I do think that if care is used in the mixture and it remains natural, a mix can make for the simplest cocktails of all. Which brings us to Ubon’s BBQ Bloody Mary Mix: an all-natural mix that’s made by award-winning Ubon’s (pronounced YOU-bons) of Yazoo, Mississippi. The mix itself is incredibly tasty and it makes a great Bloody Mary, the best one I’ve ever had. The recipe is simple (of course), but make sure to add the vodka first because Ubon’s is thick and it’s easier to mix this way:

Ubon’s Bloody Mary

  • 1 oz of vodka (I used Cathead, also from Mississippi)
  • 4 oz Ubon’s BBQ Bloody Mary Mix
  • garnish with a celery stick, pickle, asparagus, olives, onion, lemon wedge, crab claw, etc.

I’m giving 3 lucky readers 2 bottles each of Ubon’s BBQ Bloody Mary Mix. Just leave a comment below telling me what you drank during the Super Bowl last night and you’ll be entered to win. Drawing will be held on or about February 18, 2013.

    Let me tell you something about Ubon’s Bloody Mary Mix. About two years ago I was privy to a sample at the New York City BBQ festival. It was my very first time trying ANY sort of Bloody Mary. Big mistake, because now I’ve been ruined for any Bloody Mary that isn’t Ubon’s. I was naive enough to think that I would find something similar if I sampled enough Bloody Marys at brunch or where ever. Wrong. So wrong. So now I’m ECSTATIC to be able to find Ubon’s on the shelves! My brunches will never, ever be the same. End of rant 🙂

    Ubon’s Bloody Mary Mix…there are no words! Prior to Ubon’s, our Bloody Mary’s required added Tabasco, Pick a Peppa and Woster Sauce. BUT NO MORE! Ubon’s mix is perfect blend of deliciousness, with nothing added but the Vodka! Do yourself a favor and get some today. With the Superbowl in New Orleans, it wouldn’t have been complete without our Ubon’s Bloody Mary last night!

    Nothing while watching most of the game, but, when I got home it was vodka, peach schnapps and amaretto, oj and cranberry juice. I watched the end of the game and chewed my nails – what a game!
