Four Bloody Mary Alternatives To Try

Four Bloody Mary Alternatives To Try

If you love an OG Bloody Mary as much as we do, then you’ll definitely want to make these tomato-packed cocktail variations at home…


Unofficially Canada's national drink, which was inspired by a plate of Italian spaghetti and clams. This cocktail swaps out the tomato juice for Clamato - a tomato and clam broth blend (sorry not one for the vegans) that packs an extra umami punch.

- 45ml Black Garlic Vodka
- 120ml Clamato juice
- 2 Dashes of Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Dash of red hot pepper sauce (or more if you like it spicy)
- Garnish with celery salt rim and a cucumber spear (or asparagus and a king prawn if you want to make a meal of it)

1. Run a lime wedge round the rim of a tall glass and gently dip onto a plate of celery salt
2. Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake vigorously
3. Strain into the rimmed glass filled with ice and garnish


Gin’s answer to a Bloody Mary that the pros would always roll or throw rather than shake. We however like to be lazy and build this more aromatic cocktail in the glass, which gives you nearly the same effect and gets it into your hand much quicker.

- 45ml Wye Valley Gin
- 120ml Tomato Juice
- 15ml Lemon juice
- 2 dashes of hot sauce (or to your taste)
- 2 Dashes of Worcestershire sauce
- Garnish with a salt & pepper rim

1. Run a lime wedge round the rim of a tall glass and gently dip onto a plate of salt & pepper
2. Fill the glass with ice and add in all the ingredients
3. Stir and garnish


A cult classic German party shot and the shorter, younger sibling to the Bloody Mary. For our personal twist, we add a dash of kimchi juice, because everything is made better with kimchi!

- 20ml Black Garlic Vodka
- 20ml Tomato juice
- 20ml Kimchi juice
- 2 Dashes of hot sauce

1. Add all ingredients into a glass bottle and shake together
2. Chill in the fridge (will keep for a couple of weeks)
3. Serve into shot glasses with a salt and chilli rim


Thought to have originated in the 1940s, this Mexican favourite loses the vodka and switches half the tomato juice (or Clamato if you don't mind it not vegan) for a cold lager for extra refreshment. Perfected with a sweet and tangy honey and Tajín rim - yum!

- 60ml tomato juice
- A cold bottle of Mexican lager
- A dash of soy sauce or Maggi
- A dash of hot sauce (or more if you like it spicy)
- Garnish with a honey and Tajín rim

1. Gently dip a tall glass onto a plate of honey then onto another covered in Tajín
2. Add the tomato juice and sauces into a beer glass and stir
3. Top up with lager 

AND if you're really not in the mood to lift a jigger or shaker to make any of the above, our Ultimate Bloody Mary has you covered. Crack open a chilled can and enjoy with a fellow cocktail lover.
