Thanks to Camaronazo for sending me two bottles of Bloody Mary mix to review!

Between going “out for bloodies” and my travel schedule, it’s been a while since I made them at home; however, I hosted family and friends for the Super Bowl this past weekend and put it to the test, along with another mix I reviewed in a separate post. Read on.

There are many tomato juice-clam cocktails in the market but Camaronazo, according to its website, is “a unique, first of its kind, shrimp tomato juice which caters to our consumer’s taste preference for shrimp (“camaron”) over clam.”

Growing in popularity in both the U.S. and Latin America (the brand says it is becoming a leader among Hispanic consumers), Camaronazo can be enjoyed on its own, or used as a food base complement in many Hispanic dishes, such as shrimp cocktails, ceviche and micheladas.

The mix is offered in 3 sizes – 64oz, 32oz and 16.1 oz – and two flavors – regular and spicy.

At this particular party, we only tried the regular mix.

To keep the test pure, I sampled Camaronazo mixed with an unflavored Skyy Vodka and added Celery, Olives, Cheese, Lemon & Lime, and a Shrimp (naturally) as fixin’s.

The verdict: The overall flavor of this mix was very good and extremely fresh… however, we agreed that we really could not detect a shrimp flavor and that there really wasn’t a hint of seafood-ness about it.

Perhaps the spicy mix will fare differently? Only time will tell–we’ll be sure to follow up and let you know.

Thanks again to the good folks at Camaronazo for the samples!

Cheers!
