30+ Out-of-the-Box Bloody Mary Cocktail Recipes for Your Brunch Dates

Table of Contents



The Bloody Mary is a blank canvas of sorts for drinks. It is essentially made of tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and spices. There are no definite measurements - no need to use the jigger. Just throw in the basic ingredients that make it a Bloody Mary and experiment on the garnish and other ingredients to make it unique. This is the best thing about the Bloody Mary - no rules. Well, except that you avoid it as an evening drink. The concoction can do wonders to your digestion. You know what we mean. 

The Bloody Mary is a serendipitous recipe popularly known to be created by Fernand Petiot from tomato juice and vodka in the 1920s. This drink was inspired by the Russian immigrants in Paris who needed some drink that would somehow tie them to their origin, hence, the vodka. Petiot, an American bartender at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, had no idea that the drink would make it big into the cocktail world. For a time, there has been a dispute as to who really created the cocktail as one George Jessel claimed to have created it, complete with the story as to for whom he named the cocktail. 

When Petiot moved to New York City to work at the King Cole Bar at the St. Regis Hotel, the managers thought the name was a bit gory and decided to call it Red Snapper instead. However, the name did not stick. It turned out that it was the gory name that made the drink.

The drink itself, however, did not captivate the New Yorkers because it was too calm for the patrons needing some kick. Petiot turned the notch up by experimenting until he came up with what is known now as the American classic, spiced with Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco, spices and salt. Despite earlier disputes as to who created it, the classic, as we know of today though, had no doubt been perfected by Petiot.

Over the years, the Bloody Mary has seen more variations than it ever intended. Now, when people ask for a Bloody Mary , they are not only asking for a drink, they are asking for a meal. To accommodate all the ingredients you want to throw into the cocktail, the standard glass is a pint glass, wide enough for the bevy of garnishing you’ll add.

Here are some out-of-the-box Bloody Mary recipes that will truly blow you away. If you are not an adventurous drinker, might as well stay clear from this interesting concoction. I hope we are interested in trying it, though. Where can you find a cocktail that is smothered by the garnish? Try the Bloody Mary to believe it.

For your ease, we grouped the recipes into breakfast, basic, innovative, and salad. Breakfast recipes have bread and bread-related ingredients on it. Basic recipes are a bit closer to the classic, without much garnish. Innovative is as much as it sounds, experimental at best but stuck on anyway. The salad has toppings as the name suggests. Are you ready? Let’s go on an adventure named Bloody Mary!
