    Grilling Expert Mike Hedrick demonstrates how to make Backyard Bloody Mary’s and Red Eyes.

    Mike Hedrick: Hey guys! Mike Hedrick, Pit Crew Barbeque. We've been having a great time today just going over a lot of great recipes that you can use on any holiday weekend, or any weekend that you're hanging around your house.

    Right now, we've gone over a lot, we've done a lot of good cooking, but we still need to get all over our vegetables and that kind of stuff. So I say it's time for some Bloody Marys. One of the best ways to have a Bloody Mary is just to have it complete, get it done, get it going, and just enjoy it.

    We're going to go ahead and start off with some UV vodka. I like this vodka, it's clean, I like the way it's distilled. We want to start off with about one-third of icy chilled glass with a piece of celery in there, of our UV vodka. We want to go ahead and get some of our classic Bloody Mary mix here at Pit Crew Barbeque.

    It's got 26 ingredients, it's got it all in there. It's a whole days worth of vegetables. We just want to let that kind of just soak up and sip up, and kind of do it sink for little bit and get cold.

    Another thing that you can do with the Bloody Mary Mix is I think the original Bloody Marys were actually Blood Mary Mix or the tomato sauce and all, that's kind of different ingredients with beer.

    So you can get yourself a nice cool beer, and you want to go ahead and fill up about three-quarters of your glass with your beer. And then, you want to just go ahead and top that off with little bit of your Bloody Mary Mix, kind of change the color in that a little bit, kind of give it a little reason to be kind of summer time happy, and it's going to be all good.

    So folks, hope you've had a blast. We went over a lot of different recipes today. The one, what you can do on a Holiday Grilling Weekend, and so now it's time for me to decide which one I'm going to have. Do I go with the Bloody Mary, or do I go with the Red Eye? I think, it's going to be the Bloody Mary for me.
