HOW TO BEST ENJOY MARY.
Smokin' Mary is a true foodie product. The original formulation went through numerous taste tests and improvements before we felt it was ready for market. With a thicker tomato consistency than a conventional commercial mix, a single bottle of Smokin' Mary makes about 5 full-strength cocktails. And because of all those tomatoes, as you enjoy your Smokin' Mary beverage and the ice starts to melt, things only get better.
Hungry? Smokin' Mary is gets rave reviews as a cooking ingredient. In fact, she's won honors in chili competitions and took 1st Prize in a cooking competition as a shrimp cocktail . Check out our recipe page for those recipe and others.
WHO'S THAT SMOKIN' COUPLE BEHIND SMOKIN' MARY?
She's a wholesome gal who grew up on a dairy farm, of course. Let's call her Laurie, since that is her name. Raised in Northern California, Laurie remembers growing the most vibrant tomato garden with her mom. Those days of earth and loam and unaccountably ripe red fruit are among the best memories of her childhood. And that tomato garden is where many of this saucy tomato's best practices were instilled. A love of fresh produce year round lead to her love of gourmet foods--dishes crafted with care for flavor and for those about to enjoy it.
One day Laurie met a guy. We'll call him Marc--also his name. Marc happened to have a wood smoker, which he used only for good. Together, this guy and this gal discovered a mutual joy of entertaining friends and keeping good libations flowing freely. Fresh tomatoes, a smoker, libations...smoked Bloody Marys were bound to happen. And they did. Passion, craft and a dedication to flavor unite in Smokin’ Mary to make it what it should be--a gift for celebrating all that is good.
AND WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT MARY?
"I was in a crowd of people who all tried your Bloody Mary mix and we ALL loved it! How often does that happen??? I felt this was a great blend of flavors with just enough bite so it has a little kick but not so much that it's not drinkable. We definitely plan to get more! Thanks."

-Jennifer Veyette / Heber City, UT
"Bacon-y, onion, slight smoky campfire, rich yet balanced tomato flavor, well-rounded (staff favorite) We liked them all!"
-Kelsey Mort / Sutter Creek, CA
"Smokin' Mary is by far the best Bloody Mary mix I have ever tasted. The complexity and depth of flavor is like no other and each sip you take makes you want more. Sunday brunch with friends always begins with Smokin' Mary."
-John Logan / Dallas, TX
"I've tried many Bloody Mary mixes and this is my new favorite. I love the smoky flavor! It has just the right amount of spice and perfect thickness. The smoky flavor really pairs well with a variety of meats and cheeses (especially bacon!), goes great with burgers or chicken, and is a delicious with egg dishes at brunch. Other mixes I've tried contain artificial flavors, MSG, and even high fructose corn syrup! I avoid these and am thrilled that Smokin' Mary only uses quality ingredients. Not only is it great with vodka, but it mixes well with tequila or whiskey."
