The perfect Bloody Mary recipe for tailgating–especially if you’re a Wisconsin Badger fan! Did you know Tervis has all of your favorite team cups?
My whole life, I’ve been clumsy. It’s a curse I hope I didn’t pass onto my girls. Being as accident prone as I am, I need everything to be unbreakable. Enter Tervis cups! I am quite addicted and they are seriously accident proof. I’ve driven away with the cup on the roof of my van, had it come crashing into the street and it was STILL a-okay. If something does happen to the cup, they offer a lifetime warranty. Talk about amazing customer service!
Most people think of the tumblers when they hear Tervis, but so much more is offered on their site! As you can see above, I found the adorable stemless wine glasses. They’re perfect for more than just wine! There’s also cocktail shakers, ice buckets, shot glasses and actual wine glasses with stems.
I love to gift Tervis cups because they offer so many different varieties. Any sports team, character or even simply “Mom” or “Grandma” cups are offered on their site. I can spend hours browsing. Tip: make a list of what you’re shopping for BEFORE you start browsing, it helps a ton.
Since we’re in prime tailgating season, I thought I would share my favorite Bloody Mary recipe! It has a Wisconsin Badger twist which takes it above an beyond: Miller Light beer. In Wisconsin, most Bloody Marys are served with a beer chaser, but I found adding it to the cocktail makes it perfect!
Another essential for my Bloody is spicy vodka. The Crater Lake Pepper variety is my new favorite: it has a sweetness with the kick of spice! Nothing is going to make smoke come out of your ears, or anything!
- 1/2 cup Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix (or your favorite)
- 1 can of Miller Light
- 4 oz . Vodka (I prefer Crane Lake Pepper)
- 2 oz . Pickle Juice
- Garnish Kabob (see Note)
In a shaker, add pickle juice, vodka and Bloody Mary mix. Shake.
Add ice to your Tervis cups. Pour shaker ingredients into two cups.
Top with Miller Light and garnish kabob.
NOTE: to make a pitcher, just double or triple the recipe, adding the beer before serving.
My favorite "cocktail kabob" has a turkey stick, cheese cube and pepperchini pepper. You can also use pickles, olives, pepperoni or whatever you like! Make these the night before to save time.
