How to make a Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary is a tomato based cocktail that is the perfect excuse for infusing nutrients with alcohol at any time of the day.  We invented a dehydrated Bloody Mary with a base that can also be used for sauces, soups and dips.

To make this beverage outdoors, combine the dehydrated ingredients listed below with vodka.  Believe it or not, but vodka has many useful functionalities that make this spirit a wilderness multi-tool.  If you prefer a different spirit, try a Bloody Maria with tequila, or a Cesar with gin.

This drink is best served over ice. I use a palm-sized ball of snow for each cocktail. If you don't have snow or ice, try and get your vodka and water as cold as possible when adding to the dry mix. I recommend putting your liquids in a sealed bottle and immersing it in a cold alpine lake or stream to drop the temperature a few degrees.
