this is my first review of any kind of product. it is so delicious that i had to make the plunge to write a review. just like figuring out how to write recipes, there is a science to how to write a review. so, bare with me while i get my science down. also not that i am only going to write reviews about products i love. i like to keep things positive.
i’m a bloody mary fiend. if i’m brunching or having a sunday funday, it always starts with a bloody mary. i normally make my own mix if i am making a bloody mary at home with lemon, old bay, worcestershire sauce & garlic hot sauce. sometimes i don’t have one of those ingredients & my whole world crumbles. ok, not really. however, i have found an amazing liquid “bloody mary seasoning” that is outstanding. here is the breakdown…
name: demitri’s bloody mary seasoning
why i love it: the product comes in anything from a pouch that makes a quart of bloody mary to jugs for industry use. i got the 8oz bottle and it is a lot easier to store that little bottle of seasoning than a bunch of ingredients or bulky bottle in the fridge. so, convience is it’s first plus. moving onto taste, i got the classic recipe & it is perfectly spicy to me. it comes in other flavors like chipotle- habanero for the spicier folks. it isn’t overly salty like some can be & because you are using tomato juice, you don’t have to worry about that weird thick texture that some pre-made mixes have. i use a 5.5oz can of tomato juice, lots of vodka & start with about 5 heavy dashes of the seasoning. ok, so now it’s easy to store & delicious. well here is another bonus… COST per bloody mary. after doing some research, i found crappy mix that you have to doctor up at home for about $1.30 per bloody mary. then there are the fancy (and pretty tasty) mixes that cost about $2.30. now here comes demtri’s seasoning, with the can of tomato juice added into the cost, demitri’s is about $.80 per bloody mary. most of the time you can find tomato juice for less than $.50 per can, so most likely it’s even cheaper. there you have it… an easily stored, great tasting & cost effective bloody mary product. i have gifted this to a few friends & we all agree that this is one awesome product!
cost: it is normally around $9 for the 8oz bottle
