A Vodka Bloody Mary is one of the best pre-dinner drinks around. You can find hundreds of homemade recipes for a Vodka Bloody Mary but when in a hurry with no time to waste just pick up one of the many great Bloody Mary mixes.

Two of my favorite mixes are Charleston and Zing Zang. Then you can decorate the drink in your own personal style; from rimming the glass to adding vegetables. My personal favorites are olives, pickled asparagus, limes, celery, or pickled green beans. Mix it up and make it your own!

Ingredients you’ll need to make a Bloody Mary

For Bloody Mary’s I like to use Stoli, Absolute or Finlandia Vodka. There is no need to use an expensive brand of Vodka because the Bloody Mary mix will just hide the flavor. The glass that you use is also important. Bloody Mary’s look great in a tall glass but some people like their Bloody Mary’s in a short glass. The difference is the taste. Make sure your ask your guest which one they prefer.

I bought these glasses at Hyman's in Charleston because their Bloody Mary's are delicious, and on the back of the glass is their Bloody Mary recipe. But I'm always rushing around and pressed for time, so I've chosen a premade mix for my Bloody Mary and then dressed it up with the garnish.
