This Bloody Mary Recipe With a Twist is Exactly What Your Next Morning Tailgate Needs


After growing up in a college town, there are few things I love more than a solid Saturday spent tailgating. Every once in a while our home schedule will include a game that starts before noon, which requires some creative takes on traditional tailgating– especially on cocktails (because sometimes a pre-10 a.m. beer can feel a little…rough).

The Gruden’s Hail Mary puts a tasty twist on the classic Bloody Mary we all know and love. It’s perfect to serve at your morning tailgate or your at-home watch party (or to just make for yourself in the morning– You deserve it).

How To Make a Gruden’s Hail Mary:


  • 1 Coronita Extra
  • 1.5 oz SVEDKA Vodka
  • 4. oz Bloody Mary mix
  • 1 Lime for juice & garnish
  • 1 Celery stalk
  • 1 Pint glass (chilled, if possible)
  • Coarse Salt


Salt Rim of glass by wetting the edge with lime juice then dipping glass into a plate of coarse salt. Combine Svedka Vodka and bloody mary mix in the glass with ice. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lime into glass. Mix with a spoon. Add clip and insert a Coronita Extra. Garnish with lime and celery stalk.
