I am planning on making this for my daughter's Spanish-themed bridal shower, so I made it first for dinner with friends. It went together in about 5 minutes. I did allow it to chill overnight and I continued to have the leftovers for a couple of days afterwards. Thanks for a time saver that makes me look like I worked much harder!
One word: AWFUL. The spices of the salsa (I used mild, fresh, from the produce section) and the bloody mary spices just didn't jive. I ended up straining it, rinsing it, and trying to salvage the salsa itself. This is one of the rare times one of the recipes from this website just didn't work for me.
The first time I prepared this was for a dinner party on a hot summer evening. It was extremely easy to prepare. Our guests LOVED IT. They all wanted the recipe! Since then, I have also experimented with the "bold" and "spicy" versions of different Bloody Mary mixes with good results. I have also tripled the recipe, added some cooked cocktail shrimp and served it for a Sunday brunch. Outstanding!
