It’s All About the Extras

Bloody Mary Garnishes

One of the fun things about enjoying a Bloody Mary is getting to add your own flare, zing, zest to each drink. Every drink can be as unique as you are! Make the base Bloody Mary recipe (found over here) then fill the brim with the delicious flavors found you can find in most pantries and fridges. The Bloody Mary garnishes below will enhance the flavor of the drink and entice the senses. Different variations of the Bloody Mary require different flavor profiles or a simple stalk of celery. Don't be afraid to mix and match garnishes to find a great match. The Roots Mix Spice Blend will give you a Perfect Bloody Mary, but more fun can be found in decorating the glass.

Garnish suggestions:

  • Celery
  • Bacon
  • Shrimp
  • Fresh dill
  • Fresh parsley
  • Fresh basil
  • Stuffed olives
  • Lemon wedges
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Radishes
  • Cornichons
  • Cheese
  • Pickles
  • Pickled okra
  • Pickled onions
  • Pickled jalepeños
  • Beef jerky

When adding your Bloody Mary garnishes to the Roots Mix Bloody Mary, keep the following in mind:

  1. Have toothpicks or other picks on hand to assemble the garnishes as your guests would like. Small forks and napkins are great to keep guests from handling the garnishes.
  2. Keep the Roots Mix Bloody Mary chilled. It's best to keep the Bloody Mary pitcher refrigerated or kept on ice until serving.
  3. Place extra mix-ins out for guests to add additional spice (Tabasco) or acid (lemon juice). Everyone's tastes are different!
  4. Relax and keep refilling their glasses.
