The Best Bloody Mary recipe, complete with snacks!

Hangover elixir of the gods, a good Bloody Mary as to be one of my favorite Brunch cocktails. What truly sets the cocktail apart from me, aside from its savory nature, is the fact that at most establishments at which it’s served- it’s really a meal in a glass.

When I set out to make a Bloody Mary worth talking about, I wanted to make sure that my recipe was not only loaded with snacks to die for, but was also loaded with great flavor.

For this recipe, the cocktail base includes delicious brine-y and salty elements, like pickle and pepperoncini juice- for a boozy concoction that packs a punch. Pair that with some delicious sweet and salty bacon wrapped shrimp and Bloody Mary deviled quail eggs- and you’ve got a brunch cocktail to remember (or forget, depending on how many Bloody Marys you have).

A Meal in a Glass: Making the garnishes for the cocktail

Making the Bloody Mary Deviled Quail Eggs

To make the cute little deviled quail eggs, you’ll first need to hard boil them, chill and peel them. If you’ve never worked with quail eggs before, don’t let them intimidate you!

The cook time on quail eggs is significantly less than that of a full size chicken egg. And the shells are a little harder, but I recommend tapping the shell gently with a small knife to make them easier to peel once cooked and chilled. Full details in the recipe below!

Making the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with Honey Glaze

To make the shrimp for the cocktail, you’ll start by peeling and deveining the shrimp. Next, wrap each shrimp with a half a slice of bacon, and secure with a toothpick. The shrimp are then brushed with a mixture of honey and melted butter, and baked, then briefly broiled so they get extra crispy!

Making and assembling the Bloody Mary

Once you’ve got the snacks ready to thread on a skewer, it’s time to make the cocktails!

To make the Bloody Marys, simply add all the cocktail ingredients to a shaker, and shake well. Pour over ice, garnish and serve! If making the old bay salt rim, moisten your glass with a lemon wedge first and dip in the old bay salt before filling with ice and serving.

The drink recipe serves one at a time, but the garnishes are enough for 6 lucky friends!
