This Bloody Mary mix recipe is straight from a bartender who is renowned for this cocktail. I think the beef bouillon gives it an added dimension of flavor.
Not only does it make a great cocktail but it also is a great addition to recipes and even as a nonalcoholic refreshing drink -- better than V-8 or that Mr. and Mrs. commercial product.
This recipe makes a gallon. Consider it as a great edible gift option only, in this case, it's a potable gift. The drawback is that the mix must be refrigerated so your giftee needs to be near refrigeration!
This mix also makes a great soup base for vegetable, beef barley, tomato rice or any other soup or stew.

Virgin Mary Cocktail
You guessed it. This Virgin Mary mocktail recipe is non-alcoholic with all of the great flavors of a fully loaded Bloody Mary but without the booze.
Dessert Made with Bloody Mary Mix
- In the '50s and '60s when convenience foods were all the rage, tomato soup cake was popular. Consider replacing the 10-ounce can of condensed tomato soup in this spicy tomato soup cake recipe with 1 cup of Bloody Mary mix. The flavor is extraordinary.
- For an easy version, use 1 (18-ounce) spice cake mix, 1 cup Bloody Mary mix, 1/4 cup milk and 2 large eggs. Bake at 350 F for 10 minutes or until toothpick tests clean.
