This home­made Bloody Mary Mix is fully loaded with vibrant veg­gies, savory spices, and aro­matic ingre­di­ents. Roasting the toma­toes, gar­lic, onions, and jalapeño pep­pers, our main-mary ingre­di­ents, deep­ens their fla­vor mak­ing this mix so much tastier than the store-bought options. 

Campari toma­toes or toma­toes on the vine are known for being well-ripened, extra juicy, sweet, and mildly acidic. Mild to mod­er­ate EVOOs still have a lovely pun­gency and pep­per­i­ness, per­fectly in bal­ance with the toma­toes. Along with the other roasted veg­gies (gar­lic, onion, and jalapeño) this is a rel­a­tively basic and easy recipe to make that still tastes fresh, spicy, and com­plex all at once.

This mix can be made a day or two in advance and kept refrig­er­ated until ready to assem­ble the cock­tails. Pair this home­made mix with your favorite top-shelf vodka for a tra­di­tional Bloody Mary or mix things up a lit­tle with sil­ver or gold tequila for a Bloody Maria. We love gar­nish­ing our Bloody Mary’s or Maria’s with ingre­di­ents found in our mix; cel­ery, lemon, toma­toes, olive or pick­les.
