Before guests arrive, bring out Bloody Mary Jane and pour it into pitchers.
Step 1: Spice It Up
Set out spices and other stir-ins in small jars and place a labeled disposable spoon in each. Try These: Old Bay Seasoning, cayenne pepper, paprika, celery salt, curry powder, chili powder, garlic salt, dried rosemary, dried thyme, caraway seeds, black pepper, ginger, smoked paprika, cumin, wasabi or horseradish.
Step 2: Get Saucy
Tabasco and Worcestershire are the cocktail's classic partners, but don't stop there. Leave out a caddy of condiments and let your guests go wild! You can also try these: Sriracha, steak sauce, red chili paste, barbecue sauce, teriyaki sauce, pickle juice, hot mustard, sauce from chipotle chiles in adobo, spicy salsa or olive juice.
Step 3: Top it Off
Celery stalks are a go-to garnish, but encourage guests to think outside the box by setting out surprising finishing touches like bacon, skewered pickled veggies and shrimp. You can also try: Olives, dill pickles, boiled shrimp, fresh herbs like parsley, basil or cilantro, beef jerky, bacon slices, cocktail onions, carrots, fennel, bell peppers, pickled green beans, tomatoes and okra or lemon and lime wedges.
Place toothpicks in shot glasses around the bar so guests can spear their garnishes.
Whether they like them spicy, tangy or mild, your brunch guests will have a blast mixing up their own Bloody Marys -- and you'll be freed from bartender duty!
