Bloody Mary Mix

Get Pickled

What’s a pickle maker to do with the unused brine? If you’re Stu Waters, you start concocting the perfect Bloody Mary Mix.

Stu, founder of Stu’s Sour Pickle, has been making pickles since culinary school, where he got hooked on the art of canning. After developing his delicious pickle brine, he started looking for something to
do with the leftovers and for something to do in the canning off-season. He teamed with Rudi Schmidt, and the two developed the perfect Bloody Mary.

Brine that’s leftover from the pickle-making process is the signature ingredient in their Bloody Mary mix, complemented by Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, and a smattering of other zesty spices. Stu mixes it all together to create a concentrated Bloody Mary starter. All you have to do is add tomato juice and vodka, your garnishes of choice, then sit back and enjoy. Each small jar of the mix has all the pickle juice and spices you need to make four pints. Cheers!

    Hey all! Stu's Bloody Mary is the official sponsor of Sunday mornings, but for all you tailgaters, patio dwellers and all around Americans, we would like to be with you every morning. Allow us to introduce Stu's Bloody Mary Spice Blend. We know it's hard to find a good bloody mary--heck, it's hard to find a decent bloody mary and so we've made it easy! Our bloody mary mix is simple, easy and downright delicious. Just add our mix to tomato juice and Vodka, you can't do it wrong. Remember Stu's Bloody Mary Blend is there for you, no matter what your morning brings.

    What a ridiculous waste of money. What you're charging for this is criminal. No wonder you can sponsor "Sunday mornings" with what you're ripping people off for for this product. $25 for four pints worth of Bloody Mary mix? Whatever! Daily Grommet is really starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel for overpriced crap to try to sell.

    @Kai Tiura: Ouch! We love it when our community helps us discover new products, so if you think we could be doing a better job, help us by clicking on the "Suggest a Grommet" above, posting on our Facebook wall, pinning to our Pinterest board, etc. We'd love to hear more about what you would like to see featured at Daily Grommet.

    You will mix up four pints of Bloody Mary for each bottle of mix, so 12 pint servings or 24 cup servings from the three bottles. Our tastebuds were delighted. We think anyone who has a love of Bloody Mary's will be impressed.

    @Katherine Klinger: Okay, so I got the details wrong. I must apologize for that. But seriously, it seems that more and more really overpriced things are making it onto your site and I reacted too quickly. I used to like Daily Grommet, and occasionally still like to see what you've come up with (or I wouldn't have seen this, huh?) but do get tired of seeing really pricey stuff that seems aimed more at the Neiman Marcus crowd than the rest of the world. Maybe I'm just being cheap.

    My math skills are fine, perhaps my observational skills need attention.

    This looks very good...makes me not only want the Bloody Mary Mix but it's got me curious about the pickles too!

    It is unfortunate that Kai is not observant, or perhaps deficient in math skills. His/her comments are unfair. Each bottle makes four pints; if one goes for the more expensive option of buying three bottles, it comes out to a little over $1 per cup (in addition to tomato juice and vodka costs), or around $4 a quart, which is quite reasonable for a "gourmet" bloody mary mix in my humble opinion.

    @Drew- Thanks for the interest, we pack pickles only in season and last years batch sold out quickly! When its cucumber season (starting late june) you may see Stu's Sour Pickles on The Daily Grommet but in the mean time, get your pickle fix by trying our bloody mar mix!

    Really enjoyed this mix. It is as rookie drink maker friendly, as it is handy to the bloody Mary "mixologist". So glad to see the pickle take its true place in a mix, as I often am left wondering where my pickle is when I order this cocktail.

    Any idea if this is gluten free? It should be from what I can tell but "spices" can mean so many things... Please say it is GF because I love a good bloody mary!

    @Brook: Have no fear, there is no hidden gluten in the spices! Although it hasn't been tested all the ingredients are Gluten Free.

    I have to commend Daily Grommet for leaving my errant post on the site and will gracefully take my spanking from other readers for not paying attention to the details of the mix's yield. I deserve it. It's a much better deal than I thought it was. (I'm glad I thought to look at the post again and am able to retract my statement!)

    That said, making the best Bloody Mary you've ever had is no mystery, and cheaper than it would be using any pre-made mix.

    Try this if you can't make a good Bloody Mary:

    1 1/2 shots good vodka

    2 shots good beef broth

    2 shots tomato juice (Clamato is even better)

    1/2 tsp celery salt

    3 dashes Worcestershire sauce

    3 dashes of your favorite hot sauce

    squeeze of lime

    1/2 tsp Horseradish can be added if you like that, or if it's not hot enough with your hot sauce of choice.

    Shake vigorously until blended and pour into cup over ice, garnish with celery, jarred white asparagus, feta, garlic, blue cheese, etc-stuffed olives... whatever you like. Light dusting of freshly ground pepper (white pepper is very good). Excellent Bloody Mary that people will beg you for the recipe for.
