How to make a virgin Bloody Mary with shrimp
This tasty mocktail comes together in just 5 simple steps.
Step 1: In a large pitcher, combine the vegetable juice, lemon juice, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, and sriracha. Stir well to combine.
Step 2: Place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.
Step 3: Spread the basil salt (or regular salt) on a small plate. Run a lemon wedge around the rims of 4 glasses, then dip the rims in the basil salt.
Step 4: Fill the glasses with ice, then pour the Bloody Mary mixture into the glasses.
Step 5: Garnish with shrimp, celery stalks, and lemon wedges.
If you or any of your guests would like to enjoy a regular Bloody Mary, feel free to add a shot or two of vodka to an individual glass.
How to garnish your drink
Bloody Marys are delicious all on their own. But if we’re being honest, it’s the garnishes that REALLY take this drink to the next level!
Personally, I like to top mine with jumbo shrimp, a big stalk of celery, a lemon wedge, and a rim of basil salt. This combination never disappoints.
But feel free to have some fun with your toppings! Grab a toothpick and skewer some olives, baby pickles, cheese cubes, and even sausage. You could also add a slice of cooked bacon with your celery.
For a slightly different flavor, swap out the lemon juice and wedges for lime instead. Not a big fan of basil salt? Use celery salt instead!
The fun of Bloody Marys is making them your own. So go ahead and get creative.
Once your Bloody Mary mix is made, you can store it covered in the refrigerator. Be sure to enjoy within 4 days.
I recommend storing the shrimp separately. Only add them as a garnish to your glass right before you plan to enjoy your drink.
