10 Ways To Use Bloody Mary Mix That You're Not Expecting

Dill-ish Bloody Mary Mix made by The Real Dill is one of the best we’ve tried – and we’ve had our fair share of Bloodys. It’s a spicy, peppery, tomato-y concoction that magically banishes the little headache that comes with having too much fun the night before. Which got us thinking: What other tricks can Dill-ish Bloody Mary Mix perform?

Each sip delivers a punch of fresh, zippy goodness in the form of cucumber water, tomato paste, dill, horseradish, habanero, vinegar, salt, spices and garlic. It’s so delicious and Mouth-wateringly briny, it can stand on its own or be used as an ingredient in a variety of dishes. No, we’re not drunk.

Below, 10 ideas for using Dill-ish Bloody Mary Mix other than as a vehicle for booze

  1. Pour into little cups and serve it as an amuse-bouche at dinner parties.
  2. Blend with stale bread for a quick, easy gazpacho. Serve chilled, topped with a last-minute glug of peppery olive oil.
  3. For a creamy, spicy tomato soup, warm on the stove with chicken stock and whisk in a little heavy cream before serving.
  4. To make our version of spicy fusilli alla vodka, bring Bloody Mary Mix to a simmer. Remove from heat, add a few dashes of heavy cream, a knob of butter and a few tablespoons of grated Parmesan. Stir ‘til sauce thickens, then toss with cooked pasta.
  5. Use it to marinate chicken, steak or shrimp before grilling. The acid and spices in the mix add great flavor and make the meat super tender.
  6. For a quick party dip, mix ½ cup of Bloody Mary Mix with 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 3 cups cream cheese and a handful of chopped chives. Serve with pita triangles and an assortment of raw veggies.
  7. Whisk with olive oil to make a dressing. Add to a bowl of chopped raw celery, peppers, celery and onion. For extra texture and flavor, add some creamy blue cheese.
  8. Making chili? Swap out the liquid you usually use and replace with Bloody Mary Mix.
  9. Cover chicken breasts with Bloody Mary Mix, add chopped onions and let it do its thing in the slow cooker.
  10. Braising beef for a few hours? Use Bloody Mary Mix instead of red wine. 

It’s all so dill-ish.
