Ah, the cure-all for a rough morning.

The Bloody Mary is one of those “thick and thin” drinks. It’s always there when you need a little pick-me-up the morning after a long night, and it’s just as perfect as a flavorful spicy drink any time of the day.

Tabasco Sauce is one of the ingredients that makes the Bloody Mary special, so it’s fitting that the brand has made its own Tabasco Bloody Mary mix. It’s full of flavor and delivers as both a spicy cocktail and as a nonalcoholic virgin drink.

A long history together

Tabasco and the Bloody Mary have a long history together. It’s a staple in the Bloody Mary recipe of many famous bars including the famed King Cole Bar in the St. Regis New York. And it’s the spicy sauce behind the International Bar Association’s official Bloody Mary recipe. This is one cocktail combo that has withstood the test of time, so it’s no surprise that Tabasco has its own Bloody Mary mix.

The ingredients

There’s what you’d expect and not much else in Tabasco’s mixer. Just Tabasco sauce, Lee & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce, tomato paste, concentrated lime juice, salt and water. The Worcestershire delivers a whole assortment of spices  –  cloves,molasses, chili pepper extract, anchovies, onions, tamarind salt, garlic and more. There’s a lot of flavor here, just what you want in a Bloody Mary. 

Your Tabasco Bloody Mary mix flavor options

Tabasco makes two different flavors of mix – the mildly seasoned and the extra spicy. The mildly seasoned option contains only a slight hint of spiciness, but it does pack a whole lot of flavor. This is definitely a slightly spicy Bloody Mary mix that everyone can enjoy – people with sensitive taste buds won’t be put off at all by the level of heat. In terms of the Scoville scale, it could be compared to a poblano pepper level of total heat, maybe even less. It’s very mild.

The extra spicy mix does, of course, pack some additional punch while maintaining much of the excellent spice from the mild version. Though it does tend to be a little saltier along with the heat. The extra spice brings this mixture to a heat level near that of a jalapeño pepper – at the lower end of the medium-hot pepper spectrum.

Good for home or as a cool spicy gift!

Tabasco is a brand that people know and love, so their hot sauces and branded items are excellent for gift giving. The company makes a very cool Tabasco Bloody Mary mix gift set that contains the mix, plus two Tabasco-branded glasses. This is a great present for any spicy food fan or Bloody Mary lover.
