How to make a Bloody Mary!

Three Great GJ’s 1 Shot Recipes

If you’re looking for the perfect hangover cure, then look no further than a Bloody Mary!

Invented in the 1920s or 1930s, the bloody mary is a full meal in a glass! They are traditionally made with a combination of any or all Worcestershire sauce, hot sauces, garlic, herbs, horseradish, celery, olives, salt, black pepper, lemon juice, lime juice, and celery salt. If that sounds overwhelming, then grab a bottle of GJ’s  1 Shot! Made in Oskaloosa, KS, GJ’s takes the hard part of finding the right mix of sauces and spices out of your hands and streamlines the cocktail-making experience!

This week’s episode of Be Your Own Bartender is all about the Bloody Mary. To make a classic bloody mary, you just need your favorite vodka, tomato juice (V8 or Clamato work too!), and a bottle of GJ’s. If you’re looking to change up your Bloody Mary experience, try out the Tomato Beer or substitute the vodka for tequila with a Bloody Maria!
