The Bloody Mary, everyone’s favorite brunch cocktail, is almost as unique as the individual who made it. Everyone has their own preference and there is no one right way to make them. The cocktail was once called “the world’s most complex cocktail” in The Daily Telegraph. One thing is certain- Jeff’s Naturals products are a natural fit for this mysterious drink.
Guess you could say Jeff’s Naturals and a Bloody Mary go together like salt and pepper. One compliments the other.

Stir Bloody Mary mix and vodka together. Add a dash of hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and a splash of Jeff’s Naturals Olive or Pepper brine. Pour over ice in a highball glass. Garnish with your favorite Jeff’s Naturals Peppers and Olives. Finish with a stalk of celery.
As members of the growing natural products community, we always look forward to our annual trek to Anaheim, CA for Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest trade show for the natural, organic and healthy products industry. The Jeff’s Naturals team cannot wait to connect with the thousands of attendees looking for the newest and most innovative natural, organic, and healthy lifestyle products the weekend of March 5–7, 2015.
“At last year’s Expo West event, it was quite noticeable that the non-GMO movement is really taking hold and influencing the food choices consumers make,” says Irene Fay, the Natural Channel Sales Manager for Jeff’s Naturals. “We are proud to be among the exhibitors that are non-GMO certified. In fact, people flocked to our booth last year just to sample our products. Nice to see so many olive and pepper lovers out there!”
If you have never been to Expo West, it is quite the experience! Our Bloody Mary Bar from last year’s event was such a hit, that we have decided to reunite with Lakewood Juices and Tillen Farms to host another special cocktail hour (for attendees 21 and up) at the 2015 event!
We hope you will visit the Lakewood Juices Booth, #2816, and the Tillen Farms Booth, #2673. Then, be sure to stop by the Jeff’s Naturals Booth, #4144, on Saturday, March 7th from 12 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. for some fun Jalapeno Mangorita Madness!!
