Spring is brunch season and every brunch needs a good Bloody Mary… and maybe some mimosa cupcakes. I'll tell you the truth, although I'm pretty good at drinking Bloody Marys, I've never been very good at doing them. I never got the seasoning quite right. Recently, my friends Nik and Greg started their own business adventure doing single-service Bloody Mary repairers called Bloody Awesome packs (no, they don't pay me for this, I just think they are super awesome!). These little packs have everything you need to spice up your Bloody Mary, just open one, pour it into your tomato juice, and add your vodka! They are great for traveling, home, or on the go.
I fell in love with this idea and was inspired to try to make my own unique Bloody Mary. I am a born and raised Marylander and I thought it would be amazing to make a Maryland Bloody Mary. In Maryland, it's all about crabs, and all Marylanders use Old Bay Seasoning to steam crabs. Well, not just for steaming crabs … if a Maryland dish has crab, you can bet it will have Old Bay too. I love that flavor and thought a little Old Bay would go perfectly in a Bloody Mary mix!

All you need are some ingredients and some Maryland-inspired side dishes. I mixed hot tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, fresh lemon juice, horseradish, fresh ground black pepper, celery seed and the Holy Grail, Old Bay seasoned in a pitcher with a little ice.
I rubbed a lemon on the rim of my mason jar and dipped it in the Old Bay seasoning.
Then I poured myself a full glass and added my side dishes. You can't have a Maryland Bloody Mary without a crab leg and some mini crab balls!

The Maryland crab season is starting soon and I can't wait to enjoy my Maryland Bloody Mary while I collect crabs. I bet a Bloody Mary bar at Easter brunch would be a great idea, my mom would even like one for Mother's Day!
