Sunday Funday DIY Bloody Mary Bar ♥

 Happy Sunday Funday!!!!Here is my recipe for a great bloody mary bar you can do at home, who said Sunday Funday's can't be at the house? Here is what you need to set up your own little diy bloody mary bar! ♥

Here are some essentials and suggestions for setting up a build-it-yourself Bloody Mary Bar. Give your guests a glass of ice and let them tinker around to create their favorite version:

Liquor: Put out a selection of flavored and regular vodkas. Although good vodka is the basis for most Bloodies, you may want to offer your crowd other options, like gin or tequila.

Mixers: I prefer to stock straight-up tomato juice, but there are a lot of boutique-style mixers on the market that are really tasty. Choose one with quality (real) ingredients for the best flavor.

Garnishes and Add-Ins: Now comes the fun part! Provide your guests with an assortment of delicious nibbles and flavor extras for creating their ultimate party-in-a-glass.

Lemon and lime wedges or coins
Celery stalks
Olives, stuffed and pitted options
Pickle spears or gherkins
Celery salt, Old Bay seasoning or sea salt for those who want a flavored rim
Spices, like cayenne pepper, paprika, chili powder and black pepper
Worcestershire sauce
Steak sauce
Hot sauce
Beef jerky
Boiled shrimp

Here is my recipe for the ultimate diy sunday funday bloody mary!

Ingredients ♥

1 1/2 – 2 oz (about a shot) of vodka ( My fave Absolut Vodka)

Splash of olive juice
Dash of Tabasco
Dash of bitters (celery bitters if you have it)
Splash of Worcester Sauce
1/8 tsp Horseradish (or more if you’re hooked on it like we are)
Blood Mary mix or wing it I love V-8 juice
Olives for garnish (bonus points if they are stuffed with garlic)
