You can try it, but it’s very bland. But if you need that option for health reasons, please do use it. We are here advocating taste and a healthy balance that doesn’t blow your daily sodium intake in one or two drinks.

If you love drinking bloody marys and micheladas, but you hate the sodium content and you've tried using no sodium or low sodium mixes before, they never work for you!
Bloody Maria Mix is a great way to make delicious low-sodium cocktails at home without sacrificing taste or quality.
Compare our brand with others, you can enjoy an authentic tasting bloody mary without all the salt found in other mixes on the market today.
Here's what to look for when reading labels plus what you should know about Bloody Maria Mix specifically:
- Size per service. We know it’s easy to get right down to the nutrition facts, but slow your roll.. And look at the service size first. Compare Tomatoes to Tomatoes friends.
- Sodium. It’s super important when working with sauces especially made with a tomato base to look at sodium (and sugar… that’s next)
- Sugar. There’s so many red sauces, ketchups, spaghetti sauce etc, that add sugars to their recipe. Hey, we’re fine if you want to sweeten the pot when you’re making things at home, but we aren't adding that to our mix and think the vegetables are sweet enough on their own.
- Spices. Quality spices locally sourced if what we’re looking for that’s why we use the chiles from New Mexico and support local farmers as much as we possibly can.
- Additives. Hold the Preservatives Please. Our jars are packaged without any preservatives but the plastic squeeze bottle does have
