The Farmers Market Mary

Bloody Mary made with pickle juice

Mary’s dear friend Renee Belanger of Bloody Good Bloody's created this masterpiece as a light and refreshing option. The garden veggie infused vodka and locally pickled veggies for garnish make this Bloody perfect for the summertime - or, as Mary says, any time.

Pickle Juice Bloody Mary - the Farmers Market Mary


  • 2 ¼ fluid ounces garden veggie and garlic-infused vodka (1 ½ shots)
  • 1 ½ fluid ounces pickle juice (1 shot or about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 dash onion powder
  • 2 dashes garlic powder
  • 4- to 5-dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 dashes Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • V8® 100% Vegetable Juice (about 12 fluid ounces or 1 ½ cups)

How to make it

Servings: 1

  1. Add the vodka, pickle juice, onion powder, garlic powder, Worcestershire and hot sauce to a cocktail shaker. Add the vegetable juice. Add ice to the cocktail shaker. Cover and shake to chill.
  2. Fill 1 glass with ice. Pour the vegetable juice mixture into the glass.
  3. Serving Suggestion: Garnish with either a mix of some fresh farmers market pickled veggies or being that I'm a Midwest girl (WI born and raised, transplanted to MN), garnish with a pickle, cheese and a beef stick!
  4. Ingredient Note: Garlic powder dissolves and distributes the flavor much better and more quickly and is less harsh than fresh garlic in this case. Also I prefer garlic powder to garlic salt, to try and lessen the sodium as much as possible!
