BLOODY MARIA VS BLOODY MARY

The Bloody Maria is a festive twist on the classic Bloody Mary. Instead of vodka, this cocktail is made with silver tequila which has a smooth taste balanced with flavors of vanilla, caramel, and smoked oak. This tequila drink is beautifully elevated with the spicy flavor of Clamato® Tomato Cocktail.

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

For Hispanic families, Sundays are very important. It’s when families come together to spend quality time with one another. We arrive with bags of groceries from Walmart and prep a variety of our family’s favorite foods. As we gather around the table to enjoy a delicious meal, we have lively conversations and plenty of laughter.

A full grocery bag filled with ingredients for making Bloody Maria cocktails.

Hispanic Heritage Month is the perfect time to share family traditions, treasured memories and favorite recipes with the newer generation. An essential ingredient I use to create memorable moments is Clamato. It’s what makes Mexican cocktails like a Michelada, Bloody Mary and Bloody Maria unforgettable. It adds festive flavors to appetizers like ceviche, and to delicious meals like my pineapple shrimp skewers.

Four step-by-step recipe images for creating Bloody Maria tequila drinks.

HOW TO GARNISH A BLOODY MARIA

  1. Rub a juicy lime over the rim of a tall glass or mason jar.
  2. Dip the wet rim of the glass into a plate of rimming salt. The best type to use for a Bloody Maria is chili-lime salt or Tajin seasoning.
  3. Add ice to the glass.
  4. Pour the tequila cocktail over the ice.
  5. Garnish with a rib of celery. If desired, include skewers of olives, cocktail onions, crispy cooked bacon, grilled shrimp and a wedge of lime! Get even more festive: add a sprig of cilantro and a jalapeno.

EXPERT TIPS FOR A GREAT BLOODY MARIA authentic

  • USE FRESH INGREDIENTS: Whenever possible, use freshly-squeezed lime juice and crisp stalks of celery.
  • USE CLAMATO: For an authentic Mexican taste, it’s important to use the right ingredients. Don’t cut corners by using standard tomato juice; your taste buds will be disappointed!
  • NO HOT SAUCE? NO PROBLEM! In a pinch, you’ll need to get a little creative. For a spicy burn, try horseradish, jalapeno juice, or powdered mustard. Do a few small samplings until you reach the desired taste.
  • PRE-MIX MEXICAN COCKTAILS: These tequila mixed drinks taste even better when made in advance. When prepping for large parties, mix the ingredients in a large beverage container a few hours before guests arrive. This will give the flavors a chance to combine and get extra tasty!
