drink: battle of the bloody marys

Sunday, 26 January 2014


Over the last year, we’ve bounced back and forth between two bloody mary recipes. ┬áThe first is something that I cobbled together online, probably from some over-spiced Emril recipe (bam!) ┬áThe second is a recipe we just picked up from McGinty’s Pub in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Bastard Child of Emril Bloody Mary (serves four)

  • 2 tbsp. Horseradish
  • 2 tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp. Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. Onion Powder
  • 1 tbsp. Worchester Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. White Pepper
  • 1 tsp. Garlic, Diced
  • 1 bottle of the Bloody Mary mix of your choice.

McGinty’s Pub (single serving)

  • 1 tbsp. A-1 Sauce
  • 3 dashes of Tabasco Sauce
  • 1.5 oz. vodka
  • 3 0z. Guinness (yes, the beer)
  • 3-5 oz. of Bloody Mary mix, to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper
