Sacramento® Tomato Juice is the gold standard for scratch-made Bloody Marys.

From Sunday brunches, corporate and private parties, to New Year’s Day, a classic Bloody Mary, Bloody Maria or Michelada needs to be consistently superb. That’s why so many fine dining and steak house bartenders count on Sacramento® Tomato Juice as the basic building block to these drinks made from scratch. It’s deep, rich color and viscosity stands up well to ice and booze without losing flavor.

Perfection pour after pour means consistently great Bloody Mary’s, Bloody Maria’s and Micheladas.

Yet, peak dayparts can mean less trained bartenders can struggle in consistently building a perfect Bloody Mary. Likewise, scratch-made Bloody Mary’s, Bloody Maria’s, and Micheladas can slow down bar service leading to customer dissatisfaction and lost revenue. That’s why Red Gold, the makers of Sacramento® Tomato Juice went to extra research to create its new Sacramento Bloody Mary Mix.

Querying top bartenders on its formula, the resulting mix exceeded expectations. With a perfect blend of tomato juice, visual particulate spices and seasonings, the mix holds up well after ice and liquor has been added.  Now, with simple pours of the mix and liquor, all that is needed is your customized toppings on a skewer, and you have perfection—speeding service and assuring consistency.

That’s why no brand can match our quality or flavor.”
