It’s Worth the Switch to This New Bloody Mary Mix

Bartenders Agree. This Beats the Most Popular Mix Brands

Breaking into a crowded field of bloody mary mixes is never easy. That’s why when Red Gold® opted to upgrade its existing Sacramento® Bloody Mary Mix, they turned to trusted bartenders and restaurant experts to craft a game changer.

Whether you are a liquor store owner, wholesaler, or a restaurant owner, this new bloody mary mix is worth adding to your pre-mix line up.

“There are some clear favorites among professional bartenders and restaurants, so we doubled down on research by asking some of the best in our field to perfect a formula that is worthy of a taste,” explains Red Gold’s Vice-President of Foodservice about the company’s new Sacramento Bloody Mary Mix. “Ours was the most extensive formulation research project in recent company history.”

Sacramento Tomato Juice has a storied past as the preferred start for a signature bloody mary for top East Coast fine dining restaurants and steakhouses from New York City and Boston to Miami. With COVID labor shortages still lingering while customers began to return to bars and restaurants, Red Gold wanted to up its game with a first-class bloody mary mix for its Sacramento brand. To do so, the company called on David Commer, a beverage advisor to major restaurant chains and hotels. Commer leveraged a group of top bartenders to test formulas for the new mix that would make it the best in the business.

The experts scored formulas based on four important criteria: color, visible particulate, aroma, and viscosity; then level of heat and whether the overall flavor was better than their scratch-made bloody mary. The test panel even evaluated the label on the bottle to ensure any bartender or restaurant owner would be proud to show the fashionable look of the drink they are ready to pour. The result was a symphony of both stunning eye appeal and flavor that rivals bloody marys and sangritas made from scratch, and a mix that is superior to any other bloody mary mix.

Below are a few of the reviews from the survey. Although Red Gold cannot disclose the name and position of each panelist, we can confirm each expert has a title specializing in beverage management and is from a legitimate restaurant operation.
