Bloody Maya Mix

We love a good Bloody Mary or Bloody Maria, so we thought, why not a Bloody Maya? Maya, according to Brittanica, originally denoted the magic power with which a god can make human beings believe in what turns out to be an illusion. What better name for a cocktail?

And if you’re not into illusions brought on by booze, we think the mixer is delicious as is (don’t forget the garnishes!) or when used in a Virgin Bloody Maya using non-alcoholic beer.

Ingredients (make enough mixer for 6 drinks)

  • 32 oz tomato juice
  • 2 lemons
  • 6-8 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce 
  • 1 TBSP Masi Masa Tikka Masala Spice Blend
  • Vodka (to make it a Virgin Bloody Maya, replace with non-alcoholic beer)

Garnishes (use as many or as few as you’d like!)

For rim of glass (optional)

  • 2 TBSP coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp Masi Masa Tikka Masala Spice Blend
  • 1 tsp onion flakes

Directions (for mix)

  1. Combine all the ingredients except garnishes and vodka in a large measuring cup (cut lemons on half and squeeze in lemon juice), mix well
  2. TASTE and adjust to your liking
  3. Pour into a jar (or the tomato juice container) and store in fridge for up to a week

Prepare garnishes & glasses

  1. Stick garnishes on a thin skewer or cocktail pick
  2. On a plate, mix together 1/4 tsp Tikka Masala and 1 tsp coarse sea salt 
  3. With a paper towel, wet the rim of a pint glass
  4. Press rim of glass into salt mixture

To Serve

  1. Fill glass with ice
  2. Add 1-1.5 oz of vodka (for a Virgin Bloody Maya, replace with non-alcoholic beer)
  3. Add Bloody Maya Mix to fill glass
  4. Stir well
  5. Serve with skewer of garnishes
