Hot Hot Hot Cocktail Sauce

I hope everyone out there had a nice weekend like we did! It was so nice to see son-in-law and grandson after 10 years, way too many, and to just sit around and catch up on time gone by! With company headed back to Indiana this morning, it’s time to start getting back to normal. After Scott and Gunnar’s fishing expedition, they are on their way home with a cooler full of fresh caught fish from the Gulf and before they left, some sheepshead filets were left in our freezer for us to enjoy! It’s been years since I’ve had sheepshead and probably won’t have it again until they come down for another visit! I also have some fresh shrimp in the freezer to cook up with the fish and it sounds like a true seafood dinner is on the agenda for us this week. This recipe is a little on the hot side for us, but I know a lot of you out there can take the heat so here we go!

In our freezer now!

Homemade Bloody Mary Mix

Are you a fan of Bloody Marys? I know I am, however, I have to stick to the virgin ones as vodka and I don’t get along very well! Vodka seems to have a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde effect on me, so husband banned me from drinking it. I do get to have just one every so often but I have to keep it to just one. I do like this recipe as it is homemade and you can adjust the ingredients to suit your taste buds! With tomatoes starting to come in now, it’s the perfect time for you to enjoy a glass of this spicy drink with or without the vodka!

Looks good right now!

Homemade Bloody Mary Mix
  • 7 to 8 lbs ripe tomatoes
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 teas prepared horseradish
  • 1 teas Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teas white pepper
  1. Chop tomatoes coarsely and combine with the next 3 ingredients in a large heavy saucepan; do not add water as the tomatoes will make their own juice.
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until all veggies are tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Press mixture though a sieve, reserving the liquid and using the pulp for your compost pile or just plain trash it!
  4. Stir in the remaining ingredients, cover and chill.
  5. Best if chilled for a day before consuming.


Great for your holiday party…….enjoy one for me!
