Beefeater Gin Bloody Mary

BM Main

I had a brand new bottle of Beefeater Gin and wanted to put it to good use here on Gin & Griddle! So I thought a Bloody Mary (to accompany some rugby watching) seemed a perfect way to do this. Over the years I’ve had a love hate relationship with Bloody Marys…when they are good they can be incredible but when bad, ghastly concoctions. This one with Beefeater Gin was delicious.

Wandering around Marks and Spencer, I came across Stonewall Kitchen’s Bloody Mary Mixer – I love some of the unusual and different food products M&S bring in just like this. I decided to give it a try, rather than mixing my own version. I tasted it first before making up the cocktail – lots of tomato, just enough spice and pepper, lemony and zesty. The balance of flavours seemed just right.

I like a Bloody Mary quite simple, lots of ice, a garnish of with celery… I’m not crazy on the wacky garnishes you see – bacon, prawns and the like. So back to my bloody mary, made with Gin! While I do like a vodka Bloody Mary which is  definitely the more standard version, gin adds something different to it. Often called a Red Snapper, I generally stick to the Bloody Mary name…

  • A double shot of your favourite Gin (I used Beefeater Gin and it worked perfectly!)

The spices and botanical of the Gin itself only add to the flavouring of the Bloody Mary cocktail… I love it and hope you will too…

Enjoy!
