What's in the Bloody Mary packet?
Great question. Let me tell you what's in our Recipe for our award winning Bloody Mary Seasoning. We took 11 of all the wet and dry ingredients you would put in a classic Bloody. We used dehydrated horseradish, milled Worcestershire powder, granulated spices like garlic and onion & dried extracts like lemon and chilis. We then formulated a recipe that helps mix instantly with any Tomato Juice. We use only the best quality to ensure you get what you pay for - Especially when it comes to how easy it is! You can always go hunting down dry Worcestershire powder or milled horseradish powder but we did that for you. The citrus is extracted then dried and swells up instantly in juice. Same goes for the grated horseradish flakes. All we did was take the tomato juice out of the equation. It has an amazing taste that lingers and leaves you with a quality mouth feel at an affordable price and easy application!

How Would You Describe The Hotness?

Depends on your tolerance for sure - The Original is just medium heat! We wanted it to be subtle so it's fits everybody and if they want it hotter, add some favorite hot sauce or even more Horseradish - Now the Diablo, which you definitely need to try, is a few notches hotter but also not crazy hot.. We left some room for adding your own hot sauce as well but for most people it's just right. All a matter of preference when it comes to heat.. We definitely get people asking to take it even further - they are the ones who we can't make it hot enough for.. Remember, if you don't think it's hot, then it's because you can handle higher levels of Capsaicin in your system and probably add hot sauce any way! Everyone is different, but the Flavor & Texture of Devil Dave's should impress you! 

How Do You Compare To Zing Zang?
We don't compare to any Bottled mix.. We're different! They have a Bottled mix that comes in one or two flavors. With Devil Daves, you can use any tomato juice in the world. Or any Clamato. So possibilities are endless - You decide which style you like and add more or less of the Seasoning mix to adjust to your liking! 

What is the Spiciness & Finish Like?
Everyone is different when it comes to spiciness and we aren't describing the heat level here. That was covered above. We kept the spiciness of our Original Bloody Seasoning at a level 5 out of 10. We kicked it up a notch with our Diablo Spicy Blend and brought it to level 7 - It has a nice textured spice that hits you on the back-end. Its not, burn your tongue spicy but rather tangy, peppery and briney. Original has a smoother flavor and texture while Diablo is more developed and Robust. If you feel your mix is too spicy, use less of the stick pack or try a low sodium juice.. If its not spicy enough - use Spicy V8, use more of the packet or add some hot sauce, ground pepper or fresh grated horseradish!


How much liquid do I use for each packet?
To make a perfect Bloody Mary with Devil Daves we recommend you use 10-12 ounces of tomato juice, V8™ or Clamato™ Juice. Remember, like the spice mix itself, you can use more or less juice to suite your needs. Try using 3 Sticks or Scoops in a 46 Oz Bottle of Juice. This is the best way - especially when you make it ahead of time! Our mix is very versatile and you will enjoy customizing Devil Daves to your liking, not how they want you to have it. Also we like a good stiff drink but not ruin the flavor - so 1 or 2 ounces of Vodka is recommended. 

Also, don't forget you can adjust your blend by using more or less of the Seasoning!

Who Invented the First Bloody Mary Stick Pack? 
The concept of the stick pack emerged after countless hours of dedicated research to find the perfect way to package and use our Dry Bloody Mary Seasoning. When inventor Ryan Pakenas found nothing but spice jars and cans available, he had a eureka moment. He began searching for "Stick Pack Drink Mixes" and "Bloody Mary Spices," and soon realized he had struck gold. Ryan had discovered the unique opportunity to market the first single-serve sachet stick pack Bloody Mary mix, bringing a fresh and convenient product to cocktail enthusiasts everywhere.

Why did you put Devil Daves in a Stick Pack?
At the time, the stick pack drink mix was a fairly new concept here in the USA. We feel it's the most efficient way to package and deliver the seasoning to any container of Tomato juice. The best things about stick packs, besides their ability to maintain freshness longer,  is that they are super portable and weatherproof!

What is the Recipe for a perfect Devil Daves Michelada!
It's so simple. Just mix up a Jug of Devil Daves using your favorite Clamato - Use 3-4 scoops of Seasoning per 46 oz Jug.  Or use a Shaker with 12 ounces of Clamato & 1 Scoop.  Then just pour over Ice and Top with a good crisp beer like Modelo, Bud Light, Corona Especial... To perfect your Michelada, first rim the glass with Chamoy and Tajin®.. See more Blooy Mary drink recipes here!

Can I really use it to make Bloody Mary Chicken Wings?
We are absolutely 100% positive that this bloody mary spice mix is KILLER on Wings.  We have tried several different variations. Rub it and grill it or you can mix it in Buffalo Sauce  - You can even use a touch of Tomato juice mixed with Franks and a Stick Pack. The last Chef to try it actually marinated wings in tomato juice and Devil Daves, then grilled them and finished it with a dry rub of the spice mix - Yeah - Devil Daves Bloody Mary Chicken Wings will be in many bars across the nation soon!  We have a feeling about that.!

Is there any Gluten in your Spice Mix?
Absolutely not. We promise to contain no nuts, or gluten. Also we guarantee that we package our stick packs in a warehouse that does not package nuts. All of our mixes are Gluten Free. See Nutrition Facts on each product page. 

Are these legal to fly with?
Yes they are and don't forget they serve regular Tomato juice on planes! We designed them for travel. They are fully TSA safe and have been taken on flights many times! As a matter of fact, if you take a photo of yourself having one on a plane, share it on our Facebook and we'll give you 10% off your next purchase! Just be sure to let us know before you order by email or messenger.

Are the Stick Packs waterproof? How long do they last?
We have tested them in damp conditions and experienced nothing that would make them not function. They should be able to be fully submersed and still work fine. They are air tight and have a shelf life of at least 2 years.
