Make Your Own Bloody Mary Bar

This past weekend, I was in NYC, enjoying a healthy dose of the City.  My friends and I went to a fabulous brunch in the West Village where they had a make your own Bloody Mary bar…the waiter would bring a glass of vodka on the rocks, and then you could go fill it with red or green tomato juice and all the fixin’s.

I was all over the crunchy celery, roasted garlic cloves, pickled carrots and horseradish.  How fun would this be for a post wedding brunch?!  You know I love veggies so this was just heaven!

Has anyone else seen or done this yet?

    Capitol Lounge has a bloody mary bar on the weekends. I tried it, and discovered I didn’t have the necessary motor skills. I took a swig of my rail vodka instead of my water, and smelled like a 1930s hobo for the rest of the day.

    I do this for brunches I host – the trick is to do vodka or tequila (for Bloody Marias), then a pitcher of tomato juice with the basics – horseradish, lemon, celery salt and pepper. Then a bar of celery, olives, cajun seasoning, Old Bay, etc for personalizing.

    Delicious! I’ve collected a few Bloody mary Recipes myself: http://www.mybigfatbloodymary.com I always welcome new additions though.

    lately I’ve been infusing my vodkas with celery, radishes, peppers, and lemon. The flavor is amazing and all that’s needed is worchestershire and tomato juice!
