Brunch Success: Offer the Best Bloody Mary

February 28th, 2013 | News | 0 Comments

Brunch and Bloody Mary bars go together like bacon and eggs for restaurants and eateries that are adding a weekend brunch or expanding/updating their brunch buffet.  The key to a successful Bloody Mary bar (followed by increased brunch sales and profits) is simply to offer the best Bloody Mary around.

To get the best Bloody Mary you need to start with a premium Bloody Mary mix – one made with real juice and spices, not artificial flavorings, to offer a robust tomato taste as the base of the drink.  That’s where Taste of Florida Bloody Mary Mix is the ideal choice – you can start with a variety of flavors for the base mix: mild, medium, spicy, or clam and tomato.  Prepare with your favorite spirit and then put out all the fixings so that restaurant goers can personalize their drink.

Bloody Mary Bar basics:

  • Hot sauce(s)
  • Cracked pepper
  • Celery sticks
  • Lemon wedges
  • Olives (green, black, stuffed with blue cheese)
  • Pearl onions
  • Parsley or cilantro sprig

Bloody Mary bar signature ideas:

  • Skewered bacon strips
  • Dill pickle spears
  • Cherry tomato &  pickle chip skewers
  • Scallions
  • Pepperoni or beef jerky stick
  • Pickled green beans
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Glasses rimmed in salt or seasoning mixes
  • Serve in mason jars

Doug McWhorter, Founder & CEO of Taste of Florida understands that premium spirits deserve a premium mixer and pledges to provide the best quality mixers on the market.  Pairing Taste of Florida Bloody Mary mixers with smooth vodka in a Bloody Mary bar is a great way to start getting the reputation for the best brunch spot in town.
