Bloody Mary is a cocktail that contains tomato juice, vodka, a celery stick, salt, pepper, and some other spices. This drink was first prepared in 1920, by an American bartender, Fernand Petiot, at Harry's New York Bar in Paris.

Petiot mixed equal parts of tomato juice and vodka, that resulted into a world-famous cocktail concoction. The name 'Bloody Mary' was suggested by a patron in the bar. The drink reminded him of the Bucket of Blood Club in Chicago, and also reminded him of a girl he knew, whose name was Mary, so the drink was called Bloody Mary.

After Petiot moved to New York, not many patrons were impressed by its bland taste. So Petiot added some black pepper, cayenne pepper, Worcestershire sauce, lemon, and a splash of Tabasco pepper sauce, thus inventing the spicy Bloody Mary mix. Let's find out how this drink is prepared.

Canning Bloody Mary Mix

Ingredients
  • 30 medium-sized tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and quartered
  • 2½ cups green pepper chopped
  • 1¾ cups carrots, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced

In a large pot, cook the tomatoes, celery, carrots, onion, green peppers, garlic, bay leaf, and parsley, until mushy. This will take approximately 30-45 minutes. Once done, remove the bay leaf from the mushy mixture. Gradually add the vegetable mixture into a blender and purée it. Pass this purée through a fine sieve, so as to remove the extra seeds, if any. Pour this sieved liquid into a large pot and add the sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and Tabasco. Bring this concoction to a boil. Pour this boiled concoction into clean jars. Process them in a boiling water canner for 40 minutes. Your canned Bloody Mary is ready.
