I tended bar in college at Dick’s bar in Hudson, Wisconsin. This was their custom recipe for the BEST bloody mary ever! This makes enough mix for a very busy bar. Mix all ingredients and add vodka to taste.

  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle dark beer
  • 1 cup dill pickle juice
  • 1 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup salsa
  • ½ cup prepared horseradish
  • ½ cup concentrated beef base (paste)
  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®), or to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Stir tomato juice, orange juice, dark beer, dill pickle juice, Worcestershire sauce, salsa, horseradish, beef base, black pepper, celery salt, and hot pepper sauce in a large container until beef base and celery salt have dissolved.

  1. I really liked this whole recipe until I added in the beef paste. It was just too much. Maybe with half as much would have been better.
