Bacon Bloody Mary / Virgin Mary

Bacon is a great flavor to add to the world's favorite breakfast drink. This one is a real meal of a cocktail, too. With or without vodka, you can enjoy this craft cocktail at home, and it is as good as your favorite brunch hangout's best Bloody.

Dimitri's Bacon Rim Shot bacon salt tops off this cocktail and provides the taste and scent of bacon while you sip. I don't usually do cocktail kits, but I did make the whole drink according to recipe. Never buy pre-made Bloody Mary mix, you can always scale up and batch for multiple servings.

Bloody Mary Mix
  • 2 oz. vodka (optional for Virgin Mary)
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 4 oz. tomato juice
  • 1/4 tsp. white horseradish
  • 3-5 dashes Tobasco sauce 
  • 3-5 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • dash celery seed
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • Dimitri's Bacon Rim Shot (Optional for Bacon Mary)
  • celery stalk
  • green olives
  • crispy cooked bacon slice
Rim a hurricane or highball glass with Bacon Rim Shot (use a blend of kosher salt, ground black pepper and celery seed as an optional rim) by wetting the glass rim with lime juice and dipping it into salt blend.

Combine all liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into the rimmed glass. Garnish with a combination of garnishes on the list.
