Spring is brunch season and every brunch needs a good Bloody Mary….and maybe some mimosa cupcakes. I’ll tell you the truth, while I’m pretty good at drinking Bloody Marys I’ve never been very good at making them. I never get the seasoning quite right. Recently my friends Nik and Greg started their own business venture making single serve Bloody Mary fixer-uppers called Bloody Awesome packets (no I’m not getting paid for this I just think they are super awesome!). These little packets have everything you need to spice up your Bloody Mary, just open one up, pour it into your tomato juice, and add your vodka! They are great for travel, home or on-the-go.

I fell in love with this idea and it inspired me to try my hand at making my own, unique, Bloody Mary. I am a born and raised Marylander and I thought it would be awesome to make a Maryland Bloody Mary. In Maryland we’re all about crabs and all Marylanders use Old Bay seasoning to steam crabs. Well, not just to steam crabs…if a Maryland dish has crab in it you can bet it is going to have some Old Bay too. I love that flavor and I thought a little Old Bay would go perfectly in a Bloody Mary mix!

All you need are a few ingredients and some Maryland inspired garnishes. I mixed Spicy tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, fresh lemon juice, horseradish, fresh ground black pepper, celery seed and the holy grail, Old Bay seasoning together in a pitcher with some ice.

I rubbed a lemon on the rim of my mason jar and dipped it in Old Bay seasoning.

Then I poured myself a glass full and added my garnishes. You can’t have a Maryland Bloody Mary without a crab leg and some mini crab balls!
