When it comes to Sunday brunch, I consider myself a connoisseur. After all, fresh breakfast, mimosas, and catching up with my girlfriends are a few of my favorite things. With Father’s Day on the horizon, prepping for brunch calls for a few different ingredients. Popping champagne for Mother’s Day is a no-brainer, so I thought it would be fun to start a new tradition just for dad—a DIY Bloody Mary bar.
You can’t go wrong when it comes to creating your own Bloody Mary bar. If your dad is like mine, savory wins over sweet every time. That being said, today I’m breaking down everything you’ll need to create the ultimate beverage station. From the salt on the rim to adding the final garnish, you’ll be a Bloody Mary pro after reading this post! Keep scrolling to see how you can recreate your own Bloody Mary bar…
When it comes to building a Bloody Mary bar, finger foods are key. I’ve seen Bloody Marys stacked high with mini sliders and entire meals before, but I wanted to keep it a little bit simpler. Stock your bar with foods like bacon strips, salami slices, shrimp, pepperoncinis, olives, and cheese so that your guests can pile on their favorite choices. Don’t forget to salt the rims and stir with celery!
There are a few ways that I like to mix up Bloody Marys. Traditionally they are a combination of Bloody Mary mix, hot sauce and vodka but they are also delicious with beer or even served sans alcohol. The beauty of creating your own bar is that guests can mix up a Bloody Mary to their liking! I prefer mine a little extra spicy—yum!
How good does the final product look? My mouth is watering already!
Will you be adding a Bloody Mary bar to your next get together?
