This is how you make an Umami Mary: the ultimate Bloody Mary

Must Try

‘The Great  Bloody  Mary  Book’ by Ketel One Vodka was recently released. This book contains 30 divine  Bloody  Mary recipes, originating from 30 top bartenders from Rotterdam and Amsterdam, such as Tess Posthumus (best female bartender) and Ben Lobos (best bartender in the Netherlands 2018). We can share a recipe from the book with you: a nice cocktail for the evening or as a hangover remedy in the early morning. And very suitable for Halloween


For 1 Bloody Mary:

  • 50 ml Ketel One Vodka
  • 60 ml spinach juice (bottom)
  • 40ml Beetroot Shrub
  • 5ml Spice Solution
  • 10 ml Citric Acid Solution (see recipe)

For the spinach juice:

  • 400g spinach
  • 150g coriander
  • 1.5 jalapeños, without seeds

For the Beetroot shrub:

  • 200 grams of red, fresh beets

For the Spice Solution:

  • 20 ml soy sauce
  • 4 grams ground black pepper
  • Red wine vinegar

Also needed:

  • Coriander leaves, for garnish
  • rock glass

Ben Lobos – the best Dutch bartender 2018 – discovered that umami predominates in a good Bloody Mary. He came up with the recipe for the Umami Mary: the ultimate Bloody Mary. Ben: “Umami, the fifth basic flavor, is the perfect description of a  Bloody  Mary . But with a good Bloody  Mary you also taste   sour, sweet, salty and bitter tones due to the garnish and spices.”

Note: Ben uses a citrus solution in his recipe. You buy it online and it is used by bartenders instead of citrus.
