K Bloody Mary Mix PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
K Bloody Mary Mix
Khia Nelson owner and creator of K Bloody Mary Mix is a self-confessed "Bloody Mary Snob," and her no-alcohol drink-ready K Bloody Mary Mix is downright delectable. Khia used her years of hospitality experience to create her small-batch Bloody Mary Mix made in Brooklyn, New York that is not only delicious, its vegan, organic, and gluten-free.  Add vodka, tequila, mezcal, sake, or gin, or serve K Bloody Mary Mix on its own and you have the makings for a great party. For us, holidays and brunches would not be the same without our tradition of Bloody Mary cocktails as they are the perfect go-to cocktail, however in addition to creating cocktails with K Bloody Mary Mix, we also used it as a base for some very tasty culinary recipes. Cheers and Bon Appetit!

We first met Khia Nelson and tried her K Bloody Mary Mix at City Winery in Montgomery, New York during their MADE Hudson Valley Spring 2022 event, and fell in love with the product. What we loved about K Bloody Mary Mix is that it has delicious ingredients blended to create a very tasty, flavorful, and ready-to-drink base for a great cocktail, just add your favorite alcohol, or to drink on its own for what we call DNA cocktailsTM (Delectable No Alcohol).

Intrigued, we wanted to learn more about Khia Nelson, the creator, independent owner of the female BIPOC company and about her product. Speaking with Khia we learned that the Bloody Mary cocktail and lots of fabulous music were an integral part of her family's traditions growing up in Philadelphia. Later, when she started working in the hospitality industry and was bartending, she found that the ready-to-serve Bloody Mary mixes used were severely lacking in flavor, and since she was "doctoring" up the mixes, she started creating her own mixes from scratch to use at the restaurants.

Restaurant patrons loved her Bloody Mary cocktails and wanted to know where they could buy the mix to enjoy Bloody Mary cocktails at home. As a vegan home chef, Khia wanted to create a vegan, gluten free Bloody Mary mix, that would not only make a great cocktail, but she also could use in her culinary recipes.  With encouragement from restaurant patrons and family, Khia created and launched her company making small-batch K Bloody Mary Mix in 2016. She started selling her product at local markets, restaurants, and pop-up events, then ultimately included an online store to reach more consumers. She now ships across the United States and to Canada. Khia divides her time between Brooklyn, New York, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where in her free time she enjoys spending time with and cooking for family and friends, playing with her cats, fashion is her passion, dancing, and listening to great music, so be sure to check out her playlist on her website for your next party.

Luxury Experience is not the only fan of the award-winning K Bloody Mary Mix; it was awarded a 2020 Good Food Award, and in 2021 received a Gold Medal from Fifty Best. K Bloody Mary Mix is also a "proud member of: Made in NYC, a non-profit spotlighting New York City-based businesses, The Good Food Guild, and The Specialty Food Association."

What we especially loved about K Bloody Mary Mix is that it has all the ingredients that we would use to create a great Bloody Mary, without having to take the time to make it from scratch. The mix is well-balanced with layers of flavors and has enough spice to give it a kick, without knocking your palate off for the rest of the day. Simply add vodka, tequila, mezcal, gin, sake, or your favorite alcohol to K Bloody Mary Mix, put on some great music, invite family or friends over, and you have the makings for a great party.

Luxury Experience - Hot Smoking Tomato Martini
Yield: 1 Cocktail
Glass Used: Martini Glass 

We love using infusions in our cocktail creations and created Luxury Experience - Hot Smoking Tomato Martini by infusing SONO 1420 American Craft Distillers Vo Vodka with a habanero and letting the vodka rest until it reached our desired level of heat. Habanero "heat" can vary, so when you create an infusion, it is important to taste throughout the process. It may take a few hours or a few days depending on the level of heat desired.

We combined our infused vodka with K Bloody Mary Mix, and Noilly Prat Extra Dry Vermouth, and gave it a smoking finish by lighting a sprig of dried rosemary and extinguishing it in the cocktail. We garnished the cocktail with a skewered sundried tomato.  

Ingredients:

1.75
Ounces
Habanero infused SONO 1420 American Craft Distillers Vo Vodka
0.75
Ounce
K Bloody Mary Mix
0.25
Ounce
Noilly Prat Extra Dry Vermouth
 
 
Sundried Tomato, garnish

Method: Chill Martini glass and set aside. Add all ingredients (except garnish) to a shaker with 4 ice cubes, shake hard until ice dissolves, strain into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with skewered sundried tomato. Present the cocktail in front of your guest, light a sprig of rosemary, and extinguish it in the cocktail to give it a smoking finish.

Cocktail Garnishes

A great Bloody Mary is all about the mix and the alcohol, although somewhere along the line, garnishes became equally important, often fighting for prime cocktail "real estate." The garnish is up to individual preference, so for parties we like to offer a variety of pre-skewered options presented in square vases or glasses so that our guests can customize their cocktail.

Go traditional and cut celery stalks with leaves long enough to use as stirrers. Alternate Spanish pimento stuffed green olives, grape tomatoes, and cocktail onions on a skewer. Skewer your favorite olives and cubes of cheese. Skewer ciliegine mozzarella balls and grape tomatoes. Dice cucumbers and alternate with olives.

Love bacon with your Bloody Mary cocktail? Rim your glass first with maple syrup, then dip in crushed crispy bacon. Use a vegetable peeler on a cucumber to create long strips and then roll them up with a cocktail onion in the middle and skewer for a fanciful garnish. Be sure to offer lemon and lime wedges or wheels to add that extra citrus kick. Garnish possibilities are endless to make your Bloody Mary cocktail a sensation.

Luxury Experience - Seafood Shooters

Our Seafood Shooters are another tasty, easy-to-make, easy-to-love, perfect for parties' appetizers. We used "shot glasses" and alternately layered 1-tablespoon of cooked, diced bay scallops, cooked, diced shrimp, and diced roasted red pepper in the glasses, then topped them with K Bloody Mary Mix. We garnished the shooters with a medium size shrimp and presented them on a wood board with lemon wedges nestled on nasturtium leaves for an attractive presentation.

Whether you opt to serve K Bloody Mix on its own, use it as a base for a Bloody Mary cocktail with your favorite alcohol, or use it in culinary recipes, the results will be amazing.
