Crafting An Irresistible Bloody Mary Grazing Board
Let Boos Block help you celebrate with this fantastic grazing board idea! If you don’t feel like cooking but you still want to impress your guests, dazzle them with hors d’oeuvres and culinary bites displayed on some stunning Boos Block cutting and serving boards.
For an unforgettable party, consider crafting a sensational Bloody Mary grazing board that will kick off the celebration in style! Begin by choosing your Boos Block serving board. A great one to choose is the Maple RAFR Cutting Board. This board (model RAFR2418) has metal handles which is perfect for stacking on food and serving when guests arrive. Being reversible has an advantage.
Flip the board over for a flat serving surface. At 24″x18″x2-1/4″ thick, the Maple RAFR is large enough to display a sufficient arrangement of delectable bites. Assemble an array of vibrant and fresh ingredients to complement the classic cocktail. Arrange an assortment of garnishes like crispy celery sticks, plump green olives filled with blue cheese, juicy cherry tomatoes, and zesty lemon wedges. Add pickled vegetables such as green beans, carrots, okra, red peppers, asparagus, baby corn, artichoke hearts and beets to the mix. Include a selection of artisanal cheeses, cured meats and smoked salmon to add depth and richness to the board, or some peel and eat shrimp. Nothing is off limits at this bar.
Incorporate BBQ or lemon pepper chicken wings or sliced pizza to satisfy guests while they are enjoying their drinks. Don’t forget to incorporate various hot sauces, horseradish, and other condiments to allow guests to customize their Bloody Mary experience. Make it interactive and engaging where guests choose their favorite food combinations from the board, add it to a wooden skewer and then they can suspend them in their drinks. Provide chilled vodka and a flavorful Bloody Mary mix as the foundation, and let the guests get creative with their concoctions.
If you want to make your own drinks, make sure you have plenty of ice and a cocktail shaker. Start with the tomato juice and add the vodka. Lemon juice brings a citrusy brightness. Worcestershire sauce contributes to the savory, umami element. Hot sauce provides heat and spice. Horseradish gives an extra kick. Celery salt and black pepper is needed to season and enhances the flavors. Combine these ingredients in varying proportions to suit each individual’s taste. This visually appealing grazing board will undoubtedly set the tone for a festive and flavorful celebration.
