Beer Bloodies with a Biscuit Sidecar

From Carrie Morey's Hot Little Suppers cookbook

Beer Bloodies with a Biscuit Sidecar


  • • 4 oz Bloody Mary mix, chilled (Fat and Juicy is my favorite brand!)
  • • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • • Ice cubes
  • • Splash of olive juice
  • • Splash of soda water, seltzer, or club soda
  • • Splash of beer
  • • Garnishes of your choice (Celery stalk, lemon wedge, lime wedge, speared olive)

One of my favorite options to pull out of the bag for entertaining a group is a biscuit bar. I love being able to serve up our handmade, ready-to-reheat frozen biscuits if I don't have time to make some myself, and the guests love to pick and choose their own toppings.

And the perfect match for your biscuit bar are my Beer Bloodies! Set up a matching station to keep things simple and allow your guests to build their ideal Bloody Mary. Whether it's a slice of bacon and celery stalk slipped into their glass as a garnish, or some Tabasco sauce to kick up the heat, these Beer Bloodies are great for your next weekend brunch or daytime get-together.

I set up a Bloody Mary bar outside or on the porch with a pitcher of premixed Beer Bloodies and olives, celery sticks, lemon and lime wedges, and small wooden skewers with small boiled shrimp and cherry tomatoes. You can put out glasses or mason jars and everyone can serve themselves. The best part about setting up a bar for Beer Bloodies and one for biscuits is that some of the garnishes can be used as biscuit toppings and vice versa. Save yourself some time by setting up both and giving your guests the choice!

Beer Bloodies


  1. Combine the Bloody Mary Mix, vodka, and ice in a cocktail shaker.

  2. Shake until condensation forms on the outside of the shaker. Strain into a tall glass with ice.

  3. Add the olive juice, soda water, and beer. Give a stir and serve with your choice of garnishes.

Hot Little Tip

A "splash" is 1/8 of an ounce (or 3/4 of a teaspoon) if you're measuring!
