How to Make a Manhattan Bloody Mary

Today I am sharing a fun twist on the classic Bloody Mary the Manhattan Dirty Mary Martini. It’s a Bloody Mary for all the martini lovers! I love this combination so much and find it super fun to serve year round but especially during the holidays.

The Everything Bagel Rimmed Glass

This version of the Bloody Mary will transport you and your guests to the lovely city of Manhattan because it is rimmed with a combination that represents a classic New York City everything bagel. I made this martini with a base of V8® 100% Vegetable Juice and vodka. To upgrade your holiday season how about adding another holiday to list? January 1st is National Bloody Mary Day and I am celebrating with a brunch dedicated to the Bloody Mary.
