Thanks to Salvy Sousa 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 recently “forced” myself to make a Bloody Mary at home.

To keep the test pure, I sampled Salvy Sousa mixed with an unflavored Skyy Vodka and added olives, smoked mozzarella string cheese, and a beef stick.

According to their website, Salvy Sousa was started by Salvador Bianchine, the owner’s Italian grandfather who was a butcher in a family market in Tarrytown, New York. His final resting place is in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery from the famed Washington Irving tale of the Headless Horseman. He was married to their dear Portuguese grandmother Loudwina Sousa. Between the two of them, these recipes and more were concocted and passed through the family. Salvy Sousa was  the brand “created to honor [this] family and their concoctions. Salvy Sousa has become larger than life. He loves fast cars and spunky women and loves to cook on his big ass grill. He is ornery, and in your face, and you will love every bit of him!”

And, their Bloody Mary mix isn’t just for drinking: “The Bloody Bull will give a kick of awesomeness to your chili, soups, red sauces, etc.!” 

You can buy Salvy Sousa online for $12/bottle.

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 more like a condiment than a Bloody Mary mix. It was extremely thick (that just means you have to use extra vodka to thin it out!) and very tangy. Like other thick mixes, this is probably going to be polarizing for some people, but it definitely appealed to me. AND I definitely want to try making some sort of Bloody Mary chili with this product next… I will keep you posted!

Thanks again to the good folks at Salvy Sousa for the samples!

Cheers!
