Louisiana Brand Chicken Wing Seasoning:

Ingredients: salt, spices, onion, garlic, paprika, lemon juice and microchrystalline cellulose.

This salt and pepper based blend includes a nice hit of herbs and spices. We think it really supports and accents the overall flavor experience of the wings with the Louisiana Brand Wing Sauce. Think Zatarain’s or Tony Cachere’s without all of the salt. Savory.

Louisiana Brand Original Wing Sauce:

Ingredients: red peppers, vinegar, salt, soybean oil, sugar, xanthan gum, polysorbate 80, citric acid, datem, and natural garlic flavor.

Louisiana Brand Wing Sauce is rich with flavor.

This cayenne based wing sauce is very flavorful. It’s only slightly thick, but is rich in flavor with big hits of cayenne pepper and garlic – two very important flavors for hot wings. Spicy and garlicky.

Final Thoughts: This combo of dry seasoning and sauce make some delicious hot wings. Of the many off the shelf type sauces (grocery store staples), this one comes up a winner and is definitely a top ten sauce found in many grocery stores. Finding the shaker of seasoning might be harder.

The included seasoning takes the overall flavor up a notch, and the wings taste like very authentic wings that we would be happy to have at any bar that features hot wings done with these products. An everyman’s wing.

We are fans of Louisiana Gold Hot Sauce, and Bruce Foods. They have done a great job with this sauce and rub and the kit is a bargain at $2.99 for both.

Murphs Hot and Spicy Famous Bloody Mary Mix

The Murph’s Hot & Spicy Famous Bloody Mary Mix is their newest and spiciest version of the very tasty and successful “The Murph’s Famous Bloody Mary Mix”. The original version is a stellar stand-alone mixer that is as delicious on the rocks as a breakfast beverage as it is for a “wake me up” adult vodka Bloody Mary.

Now that the football season is over, and the worst Super Bowl of all time is history… what do we have to look forward to on Sundays?

Bloody Marys, of course!

Over the next few weeks, on Sundays, we’ll bring you our reviews of some Bloody Mary Mixers that we are sure you will enjoy. These are some of the best of the best… so let’s get started.

Murph’s Hot & Spicy Famous Bloody Mary Mix

We loved the original Murph’s Famous Bloody Mary Mix. That 5 Star mixer won the top spot in our Bloody Mary Mix Roundup.

Let’s look at Murph’s new Hot & Spicy version.

Ingredients:water, tomato paste, worcestershire (distilled vinegar, corn syrup, water, salt, garlic powder, spices, tamarind, natural flavor), lemon juice concentrate, horseradish, lime juice concentrate, salt, cayenne pepper sauce (cayenne pepper, vinegar, xanthan gum), celery salt, black pepper, garlic & onion.

Texture: Thick and pulpy. This mixer fills the mouth with a thick, savory flavor and a mouth full of taste. Very satisfying. Standing alone, as a non-alcoholic beverage, it’s delicious.

Original, l. Hot & Spicy, r.

Taste: The cayenne hot sauce really shines here. Personally, I prefer more horseradish flavor, but the cayenne is a nice change. Many readers and fans of cayenne sauces will love this blend. Spicy is the key word here.

Much spicier than the Original. Therein lies the rub… as much as we like our hot sauces spicy, we prefer our BBQ sauces BBQ-y and our Bloody Mary Mixers – well, bloody. We like them tomato-y with nice spice blends. We would rather add our own horseradish and seasonings to kick things up.

Heat Level: Rated 1.5 out of 5 Stars – Just a notch above mildly spicy, Murph’s Hot & Spicy brings on some heat, but I wouldn’t call it “Hot”. That’s probably a good thing for the general public.

Final Thoughts: Cayenne pepper fans will love this mixer, but we prefer the original Murph’s Famous Bloody Mary Mix over this version.

Kudos to Murph for changing the packaging for both recipes to the nice wide mouth bottle. It’s still a full 1 Liter of mixer, in a better package.

About Murph’s Famous:

Stephen “The Murph” Murphy created his original Murph’s Famous Bloody Mary Mix to overcome “bland” mixes that just didn’t cut it.
Featured on the Today Show, The Murph’s Bloody Marys were a favorite of Kathie Lee and Hoda!
