Making the Bloody Marys

Luckily, making a bloody Mary is very easy and there are many ways to adapt this drink and even make it non-alcoholic. To make a simple Bloody Mary, you only need three ingredients, but you can also get fancy with rimming the glasses and adding garnish. Here are the 3 key ingredients:

  • Vodka
  • Bloody Mary Mix
  • Ice

To make a classic Bloody Mary, start by rimming a highball glass with a mixture of celery salt and kosher salt. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add 1 ½ ounces (45 ml) of vodka. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon or lime into the glass, followed by 3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce, 3 dashes of hot sauce (such as Tabasco), and a pinch of black pepper. Stir the ingredients gently to combine. Next, pour in 4 ounces (120 ml) of tomato juice, adjusting the amount to your desired taste and consistency. If you prefer to use a bloody Mary mix, you can just add the ice and vodka to the bloody Mary mix. Give it another stir, and if desired, add a splash of pickle juice or brine for extra tanginess. Garnish the Bloody Mary with a celery stalk, a lemon or lime wedge. Serve chilled and enjoy the refreshing and savory flavors of this classic cocktail.

Since you are serving the drink with the charcuterie board, it’s best to use a wide and open glass that can fit many fun garnishes! Another option for serving you bloody Mary is to mix up a pitcher of the drink and serve the pitcher right along with your Bloody Mary charcuterie board. This add a nice decorative touch.

Non-Alcoholic Alternatives (optional)

If you are serving this for brunch it’s helpful to know how to make a non-alcoholic version. Simple combine the Bloody Mary Mix with water, sparkling water or soda and serve with ice.

Styling and Presentation for your Bloody Mary Charcuterie Board

One of the fun parts of creating a Bloody Mary charcuterie board is assembling the board. There are so many fun ingredients on this board that you can get very creative. In general, you should plan on using a large charcutier board or platter for your ingredients.

Place the food on the board in groups and or rows and use small bowls for sauces and dips. We put the shrimp around a bowl and filled it with tomatoes to make it visually appealing, but you can also include bowls for celery or limes. Mix colors and add herbs or edible flowers for garnish. The ingredients in this board come in a variety of sizes and colors making it a fun and visually appealing board.

If you’re board is big enough, you can put the glasses themselves or the pitcher of bloody Mary mix right on the board.

Additional Touches to Enhance the Experience

Once you’ve got your board assembled, add a personal touch or get creative some suggestions include:

  • Use fun serving dishes
  • Make individual Bloody Marys in small shot glasses
  • Skewer some food together and leave these assembled on the board
