Hoosier Momma Bloody Mary Mix enables vegans to indulge in a cocktail favorite

Quite simply, this is the best Bloody Mary mix I've ever had.

In my pre-vegan days, ordering a Bloody Mary was my favorite part of Sunday brunch. Of course, traditional Bloody Marys aren't vegan due to the anchovies in the Worcestershire sauce. Well, to me that was the best part.  I loved the savory, smoky flavor mixed in with the tart tomatoes and hot sauce. (I'm drooling on my keyboard!)

Fast forward to years later, my brunch-time drink has become black coffee and I've attempted to make Bloody Marys at home, but they're lacking. I had given up on one of my favorite cocktails!

It was a miracle when I first heard of Hoosier Momma's Bloody Mary Mix. It is vegan and actually sounded good! The kind people over at Hoosier Momma sent me their "Bloody Mary Bar in a Bag" and it was like Christmas morning. (Well, hopefully your parents didn't give you cocktail mixes for Christmas, but you get the idea).  I unpacked the jar of Bloody Mary Maker, the Spicy Red Jalapeno Hot Sauce and finally, the Momma's Garden Dilly Beans.

I ran to the kitchen to mix my first of three (!!) Bloody Marys.  The flavor was like nothing I've ever had before, far better than I remembered.  I love the Dilly Beans, they're pickled green beans, and I can't keep my hands off of them! 

Do yourself a favor, if you like cocktails or even green beans, order this. Like, right now. And maybe pick one up for me for Christmas.
