Not going to lie, bloody mary's save me during my 'hangover city' moments. I was quite surprised by the umami paste in this drink. It's a flavor you can't quite put your finger on, but it just works in practically anything!

I bought "umami paste" at Trader Joe's and have been wondering what to do with it ever since! I don't know if it's the reason that these Bloody Mary's are so dang good but - WOW! I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 because I wish this recipe was scaled up for a crowd - I served these at a football tailgate and kept having to do math to get the recipe right.
