Creole Bloody Mary
A Traditional New Orleans Cocktail

Everything in New Orleans is a little spicier, so why would our cocktails be an exception to the rule? Whether it’s served alongside traditional Sunday brunch, at evening cocktail hour or long after the sun has gone down, Bloody Marys are a quintessential New Orleans beverage. And if you enjoyed a few too many other traditional New Orleans concoctions the evening before, its often said that a big glass of Bloody Mary will perk you back up – but we’ll let you be the judge of that.

Many different bartenders add their own amount of spice and zest to this drink, so you can either trust their good judgment or request that your drink be prepared with a little less (or a little more, if you’re daring) flame than usual. Play bartender at home and mix it up just the way you want it – try this recipe as a starter.

  • 1 cup vodka
  • 4-1/2 cups chilled tomato juice
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
