Our Story

How It Started

Bloody Gerry was crafted by husband and wife team living in Venice Beach, California. Gerry is known throughout this beach town as a man who can throw a party, tell a story, and mix a tasty beverage. When making his bloody marys for friends he found himself using loads of ingredients to try to make bottled mixes from grocery stores drinkable. After growing frustrated he decided to create his own from scratch. By using organic tomatoes and fresh California lemon juice he created a mix that’s deeply savory, fresh, never watery, soupy, or sugary. Once Gerry's home crafted bloody mary mix started developing a local following, Bloody Gerry was born.

Bloody Gerry provides bloody mary and michelada fans an all-natural, savory mix that tastes fresh bartender-made right from the bottle.

HOW GERRY CREATED THE PERFECT BLOODY MARY
In the summer of 2011 I experienced my first craft cocktail. It was at Copa d’ Oro in Santa Monica California. The drink was a jalapeno margarita and that one margarita changed my life forever. Already being a home brewer, and having a passion for cooking, I decided that it was time that to live out a fantasy of mine. I started making craft cocktails at home and having tasting parties where I made fresh cocktails for my friends. I knew that I wanted to take on classic recipes and make them my own. So, first I worked on the margarita. 6 months of trial and error but I finally mastered the perfect recipe that my friends and family will swear is the best you’ll ever have. Then it was on to my next challenge, a fresh home made Bloody Mary. I started by using simple over the counter mixes, but always found my palette to never truly be satisfied. After a while I decided it was the tomato juice itself. Also I read the ingredients on the side of these mass produced mixes I didn’t like seeing that it had high fructose corn syrup and other weird chemical type ingredients I couldn’t pronounce. So, I started making my own tomato juice and adding my own spices right from my kitchen cupboard. After years of tweaking and tasting I finally found what pleased me. A savory, peppery, and zesty mix that not only converted my non-bloody mary drinking friends, but excited my friends loyal to this legendary cocktail. I had finally made my original stamp on this legendary mix, and my dear friend Jaqueline said it best, this isn’t a Bloody Mary, this is a Bloody Gerry! And so the name and the drink was born.
