Loaded Bloody Mary

Want to put a fun spin on brunch? Serve a loaded Bloody Mary. The trick is to find a bloody mix you love. I used Ben & Jack’s Lorado’s Bloody Mary Mix and I am officially obsessed. It has the perfect spice and tang but it very balanced. Now let’s get to the loaded part. I added grilled cheese bites, petite radishes, cornichons, & celery. Other popular ideas are mini sliders, bacon, shrimp, deviled eggs, or fried foods. Literally you can put whatever your heart desires. Make it fun! Make sure to order an extra long bamboo cocktail picks to hold all the goodies.
