    Last Episode/ Review: Lovejoy’s Bloody Mary Mix







    Company We Review : Skip’s Mix Bloody Mary Concentrate







    Skip’s Bloody Mary Concentrate Review







    The Company Story: AN AUTHENTIC, HOMEMADE RECIPE







    Skip’s Mix originated in the kitchen of Skip’s mom’s house. After much needed red beers and Bloody Marys during the college years for Skip, he perfected the recipe. Skip’s Mix became a house hold name with many friends and family in the Lubbock area. We are still in Texas but making Skip’s Mix known by shipping it all over the USA!







    Our goal is to be in every bar, restaurant, and home in the United States. We believe that current bloody mary mixes have little flavor or are very inconsistent, a problem that can be solved with a special concentrate of spices that ensures optimal flavor every time.







    What’s on the Outside?







    Onto the ingredients: Worcestershire Sauce (distilled white vinegar, molasses, high fructose cor syrup, salt, soy sauce [water, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, corn syrup, caramel coloring, anchovies, polysorbate 80, soy flour, garlic extract] celery salt, salt, spice, beef base (salt, maltodextrin [from corn]), rendered beef fat and hydrolyzed soy protein, natural flavoring, caramel color, spices, citric acid), Hot Sauce (distilled vinegar, red pepper, salt).
