It all starts with fresh produce, fresh spices, a hint of smoke and ends with big awards from across the USA: Smokin’ Mary Smoked Bloody Mary mix is the gourmet cocktail mixers that is now occupying bars and kitchens nationwide. Fresh whole tomatoes (no reconstituted tomato juice) contribute to a full flavor profile and a thicker consistency that stands up to ice melt and spirits.
Mary is great for fast turns in the bar that leave your patrons with an amazing experience they never knew was coming. She’s a great addition to recipes in the kitchen, Chefs love the depth and character Smokin’ Mary adds to their dishes. Bartenders love that everything for an award-winning cocktail is right in the mix—all they need is ice, spirits and garnish. Original Smokin’ Mary starts with red tomatoes and hickory smoked; Smokin’ Mary Green With Envy is made with vine-ripened green tomatoes and mesquite smoked; and Li’l Tart is made with fresh red tomatoes, a variety of fruit juices and mesquite smoked. Great with different spirits like Vodka, Gin, Tequila, Rum, Whiskey, white wine and beer. It's easy to create unique delicious libations every time.
Once upon a time, there was a wholesome girl growing up on a dairy farm in Northern California. Her name was (and still is) Laurie. She remembers her mom tending a vibrant tomato garden. Those earthy days of ripe red fruit are among the best memories of her childhood. That garden is where this saucy tomato learned many of her best practices. A love of fresh produce lead to a love of gourmet foods—dishes crafted with flair for flavor and a love for the friends and family enjoying them.
Eventually, Laurie married a guy named Marc. A man who is skilled in the ways of professional kitchens, Marc also has a smoker. And one day, Laurie turned up with way too many tomatoes. They looked at the tomatoes, looked at the smoker, and something clicked. Laurie and Marc began working on a recipe for smoked tomato goodness. As big fans of sharing fabulous food and lively libations, it was a natural that this pair would devise a killer Bloody Mary mix. Passion, craft and a dedication to flavor unite. The result is Smokin’ Mary, which you can share with your friends for fun and festivities.
Smokin Mary original, Green with Envy and Li'l Tart all three won a silver medal at the Bartenders Spirits Awards.
