Uncle Merle's Bloody Mary Mix

Bookmark and Share
I look forward to enjoying homegrown tomatoes soon.  As the season progresses, and you find you have more tomatoes than you expected, here is a recipe that may help.  It appeared in the Taste of Home Holiday 2009 issue on page 32.  They called it "Spiced Tomato Beverage".  I still call it "Uncle Merle's Bloody Mary Mix".

Uncle Merle’s Bloody Mary Mix

8 cups tomato juice

2 teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

½ teaspoon onion powder

3 tablespoons white vinegar

1-tablespoon sugar

2 drops Tabasco sauce

2 beef bouillon cubes

½ teaspoon celery salt

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

1 (1 inch) cinnamon stick

Place all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Chill and drink now, or put in hot jars and seal tight with hot lids.

*May add more hot sauce if desired.

Pour into tall glass with ice cubes and Vodka and celery stick for the best Bloody Mary ever, or plain over ice for a “Virgin Merle”.
