Did you know that Bloody Mary mix can do wonders for deli meats? It’s a saucy fact that for some reason, many backyard barbecuers often overlook. Remember, a good bloody Mary mix typically contains hot sauce, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and seasonings. And they’re all perfect for flavoring deli meats and vegetables.

For example, let's explore combining New York strip steaks and bloody Mary mix:

Depending on the number of strip steaks you’re making, pour five to six cups of Bloody Mary mix into a marinating bowl or pan. Add ½ cup of Garam Marsala or horseradish mustard to the bloody Mary mix along with 1.5 cups of red wine vinegar and 1 cup of brown sugar. Afterward, add the NY strip steaks and let them marinate for as long as you desire.

Next, set up a disposable grill and remove the steaks from the bloody Mary marinade. Add a bit of charbroiled flavor seasoning to them all, if desired. Then grill them with some bell peppers, ears of corn, onions and green tomatoes. As for the leftover bloody marinade, why not use it as a basting aide for veggies as well as the steak?

Bloody Mary mix may be used to flavor hamburgers, chicken, turkey, veal, seafood and pork chops too. Either add it to ground meat or create the marinade we mentioned earlier. And if you’re not grilling, don’t count the mix out. Add it to chili, stuffed peppers, deviled eggs, bruschetta, pasta salad and party dips for fabulous flavor. It also makes one heck of a pickle relish.

To make the relish, take a jar of Bloody Mary Sliced Pickles and pour it in to a food processor. Add some Bloody Mary mix and fresh tomatoes. Then grind the pickle mixture until it reaches a relish consistency. Use it to top deli meats, nacho chips and crackers.

This Cinco de Mayo, give our hot sauces and Tango Taco Dip their independence by helping them stand out sombreros over the rest. And it won’t be hard to do either. There are probably more ways to use our hot sauces and taco seasonings than there are tequila bottles and agave plants in Jalisco. For instance, you could use the hot sauces and our collection of bloody Mary mixes to make an incredible array of classic bar drinks. Among them are bloody Marys, shooters, Michelantros, flatliners and sangritas.

If you’re not much of a bartender, we’d suggest going with the Michelantros. They’re nothing more than a mixture of beer, lime juice, hot sauce and cilantro vodka served in salt-rimmed glasses. Oh, and you’ll need a lime wedge garnish. The beer traditionally takes up most of the glass, followed by a jigger of cilantro vodka and a smidgen of lime juice. As for the hot sauce, add as many dashes as you dare. We’ve got five different ones for you and your guests to choose from, including one that’s got a 234,000 Scoville units rating. Now that’s a real tongue-number!

As far as the Tango Taco Dip goes, you could serve it the traditional way or consequir salvaje y loco. And for all of you non-Spanglish speakers out there, that means getting wild and crazy. For example, you might want to use the dip to make taco sliders, five alarm chili or Mexican spice-rubbed steaks. If you decide to go with the steaks, consider serving them with Guy Fieri’s Rajun’ Cajun Onion Rings. Yea, we know. Cajun country is nowhere near Mexico but who can resist a great, spicy fried onion?

Although deli meats and sausages should definitely be a part of any holiday party plans, the tasty offerings shouldn’t stop there. After all, neither man nor beast can live on just meats alone. So we’ve compiled a list of incredible finger foods and lip-smacking party treats that go beyond the expected fare:

1.) Hot and Spicy Beans

Why not skip the messy, bland, three bean salads and go with something pickle-icious instead? Yes, we’re talking hot, spicy, pickled green beans baby! They look fantastic on a plate and may be eaten with the fingers or a fork. For added color, combine the Hot and Spicy Beans with other sliced, pickled veggies like yellow and orange peppers.

2.) Wasabi Peas

Pair those beans with another crunchy veggie that’s been given a palatable twist, dried wasabi peas. They are inherently spicy too. So the two foods would just go well together. For a great tablescape look, consider putting the wasabi peas in vegetable baskets instead of regular bowls. Your guests should love it!

3.) Bloody Mary Soaked Pickles

We’ve likely all seen pickles on a party platter before. That’s because they’re an essential part of most party plans. However, you can opt to buck tradition and give your guests something they’re not expecting. Items that come to our minds are pickles that have been soaked with unusual brines. Can anyone say, “bloody Mary pickles?”

4.) Stuffed Olives

Okay, so we know that stuffed olives are typical holiday fare but there are ways to make them atypical. For example, you could stuff them with ingredients that no one would expect. Excellent choices include asparagus, pearl onions, garlic cloves, artichokes, bleu cheese and jalapeno.

5.) Chubby Cheeks

Lastly, why not get a little corny? To do just that, create one or a series of bowls that contain our Chubby Cheeks snack. It’s a churro caramel corn nugget treat that tastes great alone or with a few modifications. To alter the nuggets flavor, think about adding a dusting of powdered sugar, carob or cocoa.

There's a ton of reasons to drink bloody marys. Maybe you need a stiff drink to ease your mind after a long day. Maybe you just like tomato juice and vodka. Whatever the reason, the bloody mary is a great drink for brunch (Wait, vodka is food, right?), tailgating and even classy parties. It's versatile and easy to make, but the best part is that the original recipe is so simple that it can be varied massively and still taste the same – like a delicious bloody mary. Check out this simple classic recipe:

For a regular old bloody mary, you will need

o 2oz of vodka

o 6 oz of some kind of tomato juice or any kind of bloody mary mixes

o Lemon wedges or celery

o Worcestershire sauce

o Hot Sauce

Take these ingredients (except the lemon wedge), and pour them in a glass of ice, vodka first, then tomato juice, and the sauces. Pour back and forth into another glass until they are mixed well, and garnish with the lemon wedge. That makes a great classic bloody mary. If you want something more, please, read on

Spicing up your Bloody Marys.

Now that the boring part is out of the way, here's the real skinny on how to make bloody marys. Bloody Marys are supposed to be spicy and fun. Instead of plain old tomato juice, you can use bloody mary mixes such as:

Longbranch Bloody Mary Mix

Seawitch Bloody Mary Mix 

Clamato

V8

These bloody mary mixes generally have the hot sauces and mixes in them so choose carefully. Also, be aware of your salt content – many tomato juices and mixes have added sodium for taste, and therefore salt should be used sparingly if at all

When you are choosing your garnish, pick something spicy and different, and kick the hot sauce and lemon wedge out of the picture. You can choose Hot and Spicy Beans, or if you like olives, use Redneck Habanero Stuffed Olives to give that spicy tang and still have a beautiful garnish.

You can even use pepper vodka to make your bloody mary extra hot. Other than lemon or pepper vodka, do not use other flavored vodkas to make your drinks. Also, try these cool ideas:

o Use a lime wedge to moisten the rim of the glass and then dip in salt and pepper, or even just plain lemon pepper

o Add a bit of horseradish or wasabi for an EXTRA kick.

o Smoked bacon is a great garnish for a bloody mary and provides an interesting flavor to boot.

o Try a Caesar – this is a bloody mary with chopped clams or clam juice in

On a more hilarious note: The bloody Mary could very well be considered a meal to itself. Between vodka (a grain), tomato juice and garnishes (vegetables), and lemon or lime wedges (fruit), you've got three food groups. Add a cheese sandwich and you've got a complete meal. (Not really, that's a joke. Please don't make bloody marys a regular part of your nutritional meal plan.) Enjoy responsibly!
