Gr8 Tips:
Bloody Mary mix will last for 2-3 weeks if refrigerated. Keep it tightly sealed and stir the ingredients as the seasonings may settle to the bottom.
Save time by using fully cooked bacon. Use a 4" wooden skewer and thread one strip of bacon on each skewer. Microwave on high for 20 seconds or until crispy.
