Building a Bloody Mary with St. Petersburg Distillery

If you’ve ever wondered how to make your Bloody Mary taste better, you’re in the right place. We’ll guide you through the process of creating the perfect Bloody Mary using two exceptional vodkas from St. Petersburg Distillery: Old St Pete Vodka and Banyan Reserve Vodka.

Elevate Your Bloody Mary with the Right Vodka
The choice of vodka can make or break your Bloody Mary. Old St Pete Vodka, crafted in small batches in copper pot stills, adds a unique flavor profile that celebrates the independent, artisan traditions of St. Petersburg’s history1. Banyan Reserve Vodka, on the other hand, is inspired by the banyan trees that hold a special place in the heart of St. Petersburg. Its smooth finish is sure to enhance your Bloody Mary experience1.

The Perfect Bloody Mary Ratio
A good Bloody Mary is all about the balance between its components. Here’s a simple ratio to follow: 2 parts vodka to 4 parts tomato juice, and 1 part lemon juice. This ratio ensures that the vodka’s flavor shines through without overpowering the other ingredients.

To Stir or To Roll?
One of the most debated questions in the world of Bloody Mary is whether it should be stirred or rolled. Both methods have their merits, but we recommend stirring your Bloody Mary. Stirring integrates the ingredients well without causing too much dilution, keeping the flavor of your cocktail robust and rich.

Making Your Bloody Mary Taste Better
To make a Bloody Mary taste better, pay attention to the quality of your ingredients, particularly your tomato juice and vodka. Fresh, high-quality tomato juice will have a more vibrant flavor that pairs beautifully with the rich, smooth characteristics of Old St Pete Vodka or Banyan Reserve Vodka. You can also experiment with additional seasonings like Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, or fresh horseradish to give your Bloody Mary an extra kick.
