A Better, Bloodier Mary

Growing among bartenders by word-of-mouth for the past twenty years, Demitri's line of Bloody Mary mixes and seasonings is now more readily available to the home bartender. The Seattle-based company offerings four flavors: Classic, Extra Horseradish, Chilies and Peppers and Chipotle-Habanero. Just add tomato juice to the liquid mix, add your favorite vodka (or gin for a Red Snapper...) for a batch of flavorful brunch time eye-openers.

And to top it off, Demitri's also has two salty, tangy drink rimmers. The original RimShot is a custom blend of Hawaiian sea salts, smoked sea salts and spices, which the bacon version blends sea salt with savory bacon and spices....mmmm.

Oh, and the mixes and seasonings have more uses beyond the shaker. Use the Chilies and Peppers mix for Robert's Bloody Good Shrimp, or Mike and Kay's Over the Top Bison Burgers; a little dash of the seasonings make your Gerry's Famous Deviled Eggs well, more devilishly delish.
