Ubon’s BBQ Bloody Mary Mix

Thanks to Ubon’s Barbeque 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.

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

According to their website, the Ubon’s BBQ Bloody Mary Mix concept was first developed by Legendary PitMaster Garry Roark, in Yazoo City, MS, approximately 20+ years ago as a way for Garry to extend hospitality to  BBQ Friends & Family at BBQ competitions & events. Over the years, it has become somewhat of an institution and based on overwhelming support from its devotees, UBONS has recently decided to bring this product to the marketplace.

Ubon’s is available in regular and “hot n’ spicy” varieties and is sold online in 2- and 6-packs of their 1 Liter 36-oz glass bottles. According to the site, it is all natural, gluten-free and fat free. “The UBONS BBQ Bloody Mary mix incorporates traditional bloody mary flavors with bits of garlic & onion flake, celery seed, cayenne and flavors of our 5th generation, World Championship UBONS Sauce, which is a Memphis style, and, of course, the flavors of fresh dill pickles. With all of these wonderfully complimentary ingredients, UBONS BBQ Bloody Mary Mix has a complex flavor profile that evolves with each sip from Sweet-2-Heat.”

The verdict: I LOVED this mix, but then again, I love all types of condiments, like ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce… and this mix definitely tasted like BBQ sauce. It was extremely thick (that just means you have to use extra vodka to thin it out!) and very sweet. It is probably going to be polarizing for some people, but it definitely appealed to me.

Other folks’ comments:

“I was surprised how much the BBQ flavor came through…  If was going to have a full-fledged BBQ Mary, then I’d use that mix. But if you’re looking for more of a traditional bloody Mary, it may be too strong.”

“To sweet and thick for my taste.”

Thanks again to the good folks at Ubon’s BBQ for the samples!
