Texas Bloody Mary (cocktail)

A Texas Bloody Mary cocktail is a Bloody Mary (vodka and tomato juice) with some spices added, and often garnished with jalapeño olives. Beer and Clamato (tomato and clam juice) is another drink that’s sometimes called a Texas Bloody Mary.
The Texas Bloody Mary is different from a Cowboy Bloody Mary, a drink that is simply garnished with horseradish and okra.

Best Local Use Of The Potato: Tito’s Handmade Vodka
Made proudly at the only distillery in the state, Tito’s Vodka is so smooth that we’re sure it would give even Dostoyevsky something to write home about. Tito’s tastes great in a peppery Texas Bloody Mary or in an shimmering vodka martini, but we’d be willing to line up a straight shot against any of those foreign brands any day. Move over, Absolut and Stoli, Tito’s Texas Vodka deserves some room on the top shelf.

AUSTIN—Willie Nelson opened up his Central Texas ranch and private golf course on Sunday, raising an estimated $170,000 for his friend Kinky Friedman, an independent candidate for Texas governor. 
Austin-based Tito’s Handmade Vodka provided the drinks, including the raspberry-tinged Pinky Friedman and a Texas Bloody Mary.

Bud Chelada is essentially Bud Light mixed with Clamato — aka: tomato and clam juice. (Down in Texas, there’s something called a “Texas Bloody Mary” which is a drink that calls for fouling a perfectly good beer with tomato juice, so maybe test marketing Bud Chelada down there made sense.)
