A Bloody Mary with Tequila - The Bloody Maria
The bloody mary is so classic. A hearty brunch favorite with body and depth--but with such a distinct flavor profile maybe this taste can grow tiresome.
Bring in the bloody maria.
The concept is simple, a bloody mary with tequila instead of vodka.
Tequila also has a unique flavor profile. It has more flavor than vodka, is sweet but not too sweet and much smoother.
How To Make A Bloody Maria
If you're familiar with Stu's Bloody Mary Mix, you know that making any bloody is crazy simple. It's the 2-6-1 formula.

The History Of The Bloody Maria
Where the bloody maria came from is just as ambiguous as the origins of the bloody mary itself. What we do know, however, is that the designation of who invented the bloody mary is hotly contested.
All that being said, many credit Fernand Petiot with inventing the bloody mary all the way back in 1921. This claim is held most true probably because it is the earliest account by at least ten years.
With so many variations of the bloody mary (ones made with bourbon, rye, gin, etc.) the origin of the bloody maria, a tequila variation, is highly nonspecific.
Adventure is the spice of life. Don't settle for the typical, tired old bloody mary. Try something new.
Next time you are feeling like taking a chance, or you just want to break the monotony, give this latin inspired bloody a try. You may just find the bloody maria is your new go-to beverage for taco Tuesday with the buds.
