Our second in a series of Sunday Bloody Mary goodness comes from Powell and Mahoney Limited. Their “Super Spicy” Sriracha Bloody Mary mixer is all natural, gluten free, and is “handcrafted in Vermont”.
Sriracha Bloody Mary Mixer from Powell and Mahoney
One of the newest flavors in the line-up of 12 mixers from Powell & Mahoney, Sriracha Bloody Mary packs quite a punch of spice and flavor. We reviewed Powell & Mahoney’s Original 1926 Recipe Bloody Mary mixer last year, and that one was pretty spicy all on its own – Sriracha Bloody Mary kicks the flavor and heat level up a few notches.
Based on the ingredient list, I’m guessing they are using a proprietary sriracha recipe that includes cayenne and red jalapeño peppers, but no garlic. So this is a different creature here, and not the usual “rooster sauce” in the plastic bottle.
This is a Bloody Mary mix for you lovers of Sriracha flavor and heat. Read on for the details…
Ingredients: filtered water, tomato paste, Sriracha (cayenne pepper puree, water, organic cane sugar, red jalapeno peppers, distilled vinegar, spices, xanthan gum, citric acid), distilled vinegar, cane sugar, organic gluten-free vegan worcestershire sauce (organic apple cider vinegar, organic molasses, organic wheat-free tamari (water, organic soybeans, salt), filtered water, organic evaporated cane juice, salt), organic lemon juice concentrate, organic ginger puree, organic tamarind, organic chili pepper, organic garlic powder, xanthan gum, organic shiitake mushrooms, organic allspice, organic cloves, organic orange extract, organic lemon extract, natural smoke flavor, natural onion flavor (onion oil), horseradish, sea salt, onion dried, dried garlic, citric acid, lemon juice concentrate, celery seed.
Texture & Appearance: – Very thick and slightly pulpy with a bright red color. I love a thick bloody mary mixer like this one. After all, a bloody mary is practically breakfast, right? So the thicker, the better in my opinion.
Taste Straight Up: – An aroma of fresh crushed tomatoes is up front, hinting of homemade pasta sauce. But the first taste is all fresh tomato with a big hit of chile peppers and heat, with a nice, mild sweetness. After the chile pepper profile, the next biggest flavor to me is the dark, almost umami taste of the Worcestershire sauce. Almost exactly the same dark flavor component as their original Bloody Mary mixer.
I find this part of the overall flavor to be delicious! I love the all natural Worcestershire blend they use, and find it much more enjoyable than the usual Lea & Perrins style sauce.
The supporting players, or ingredients, don’t really stand out. The acids, mushrooms, allspice and clove, and even the garlic and horseradish are very muted.
Heat Level: – The heat blossoms in the back of my throat and makes my head sweat. It’s a pungent and sharp burn, but doesn’t last long, thus encouraging you to enjoy each sip. This is one of the hottest bloody mary mixers I’ve tried so far.
Label/Graphics: – Just as classy as all of their labels, this one includes an iconic red rooster in front of “Sriracha”.
You gotta love your Bloody Mary hot to enjoy this mixer. It doesn’t mess around.
And yet, as good as it stands on its own, you could certainly doctor it up with some additional horseradish or garlic, and lime or lemon juice for starters.
