Since this is still the BBQ Month of May, what better bloody mary mix to review than one from Ubons? Ubons having won many championships on the BBQ circuit as Ubons of Yazoo, surely know their way around the bbq pit. And I’m sure many a bloody mary have been concocted at those camps.

Ingredients: Tomato puree (water, tomato paste), Worchestershire sauce (distilled white vinegar, molasses, water, sugar, onions, anchovies, salt, garlic, cloves, tamarind extract, natural flavorings, chile pepper extract), vinegar, sugar, molasses, salt, lemon juice, garlic, onion, ascorbic acid, spices.

Taste: Thick and full of mouth texture, with bits of garlic and spices. Bright, fresh tomato taste. Savory.

Texture and Appearance: Celery, black pepper and a little lemon in the background. The Worcestershire sauce blends in nicely as a supporting player… not so predominant. Fresh vegetable flavor.

Heat Level: There’s only just a tingle of heat that stays in my mouth after a good couple of sips. Only mildly spicy. Compared to the Original Ubons, this is just a tad above spicy. Perfect heat.

Final thoughts: Rated 5 out of 5 Stars – Our top rating of 5 stars! This Bloody Mary Mix is delicious, thick and savory.

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.

George’s Bloody Mary Mix Mild

Award Winning George’s Bloody Mary Mix is now available in a Mild version.

georges-mild-bloody-mary-mix

We first reviewed George’s Bloody Mary Mix (original flavor) in our Bloody Mary Mix Roundup. We deemed George’s at that time to be the most authentic “Maryland Style” mixer of the bunch, while it was also the hottest of the group of 5 mixers. George’s new Mild version is at the other end of the heat scale. Very mild, yet still retaining George’s signature authentic flavors and overall taste profile.

George’s Bloody Mary Mix Mild version

As much as we liked George’s Bloody Mary Mix original, it was too hot to be our everyday mixer. With the new Mild version, George’s has outdone itself. The Mild recipe is more of an everyday mixer. And who does’t drink Bloody Mary’s everyday? Well, you know what I mean.

georges-bloody-mary-drink

Taste Straight Up: This is a delicious tomato cocktail beverage all on its own. A fresh tomato flavor with a good dose of worcestershire sauce is followed by just a hint of horseradish. Sweet and savory, it really is a great base for your Bloody Mary.

I mixed up 2 ounces of vodka with 6 ounces of George’s for my Bloody Mary this morning. It made a very tasty and satisfying drink. They’ve dialed back on the horseradish and hot sauce enough to make a milder version of their original. Perfect as is, or as an blank slate on which to build your own flavor profile into it. Either by adding more of your own horseradish, or even some other wilder ingredients such as steak sauce or BBQ sauce – or kick it up a bit with your own favorite hot sauce.

Ingredients: water, tomato puree, worcestershire sauce (vinegar, molasses, water, sugar, onions, anchovies, salt, garlic, cloves, tamarind extract, natural flavorings, chile pepper extract), lemon juice concentrate, horseradish (distilled vinegar, water, soybean oil, salt, sodium metabisulfate), hot sauce (peppers, vinegar, salt, xanthan gum, benzoate of soda), spices, celery salt.

George’s Bloody Mary Mix is sold all over Maryland, and into Virginia, Delaware and New Jersey. If you can’t find it locally, visit GeorgesMixes.com to order directly from them.

It’s also available online at Peppers.com and at the Peppers Store in Lewes, Delaware.
