January 1st marks National Bloody Mary Day, a tribute to the greatest morning cocktail on earth, and Ketel One Vodka is obsessed with all the particulars when it comes to creating the perfect Bloody Mary experience.

Whether it was named after Queen Mary I of England in the mid-1550s or at the famed Harry’s New York Bar in Paris in the 1920s, the folks at Ketel One Vodka believe the Bloody Mary deserves just as much recognition as New Year’s Day. So embrace the first day of the New Year with this favorite brunch cocktail. It’s on a Sunday, after all.

The new cocktail program, “Perfect Pour”, celebrates the great lengths and painstaking attention to detail bartenders demonstrate when crafting some of the world’s most celebrated cocktails with Ketel One Vodka, voted the #1 vodka for a Bloody Mary by “The 50 Best Bars Annual Report 2016” from Drinks International.

For the Perfect Pour of a Bloody Mary, try the Ketel One Classic Bloody Mary, mixed with Ketel One Vodka and classic DIY Bloody Mary base, topped with the garnish of your choice.

Or, for a twist on the classic, try the Ketel One Clamato, made with Ketel One and Clamato (a tomato juice flavored with spices and clam broth.) And of course, topped with a celery stalk, olive, lemon wedge, bacon or all of the above. Also available are two Ketel One Vodka Bloody Mary recipes by famed NYC bartender Moses Laboy; a Ketel One Sriracha Clamato Bloody Mary with a poached shrimp garnish and a Ketel One Kimchi Pink Peppercorn Bloody Mary with pickled onions and black olives.
