Easy Bloody Mary Charcuterie Board For Brunch

Spice up the party with a Bloody Mary Charcuterie Board overflowing with bloody mary toppings and snacks. It’s one of the most Creative Charcuterie Board Ideas and everyone will love it!

Very few drinks are as iconically associated with brunch as the bloody mary. It’s right up there with a mimosa and peach bellini.

The toppings are what makes the Bloody Mary so fun and iconic. After seeing so many different garnish variations, I decided to make an entire charcuterie board around it.

And it worked! Most of the food on this snack board are things you might see sticking out of a Bloody Mary. But not all of them. That’s the fun part of a charcuterie board!

You start out with the theme and then branch out and begin adding things that add different flavors, colors, and textures.

So, whether you’re a Bloody Mary aficionado or you’ve never actually tasted one, this board will be one that you’ll be proud to show off!

What Is A Bloody Mary

A Bloody Mary is a simple cocktail made with vodka, tomato juice, and other spices (usually some kind of hot sauce and horseradish).

It’s a popular drink for anyone who likes a lot of heat and spice! It’s definitely not a fruity little drink; it packs a savory and spicy punch.

Who was Bloody Mary? No one actually knows. Some sources say it was a server who worked at a saloon bar called The Bucket of Blood in Chicago. Other people think it’s named after Queen Mary Tudor of England.

This drink is usually used as a “hair of the dog” cocktail that people drink as a way to cure a hangover. The tomato juice settles the stomach, the salt replenishes electrolytes, the and alcohol relieves head and body aches.

But the garnishes are what makes a Bloody Mary easy to recognize.

Most people add just a stick of celery in the Bloody Mary. But some people make a drink that’s overflowing with things like olives, shrimp, celery, pickles, lemon, and peppers.

And after seeing some of these over-the-top garnishes, I got the idea to build and entire charcuterie board around them.

How To Build A Charcuterie Board

In order to make a charcuterie board that everyone will love, you’ll want to fill up all the empty spaces so it looks like it’s overflowing.

So, I suggest you start by adding food in small ramekins and placing them in each corner. I put the peppers and olives in them.

Next, don’t forget about the Bloody Marys! They are the entire reason that this board exists, so you’ve got to add a small jar of tomato juice and vodka to the board.

After that, begin to fill in the empty spots with vegetables. Try not to place green vegetables next to green ones, just to help the colors pop. (Since almost all veggies are green, just do your best).

Keep design direction in mind as you do this. Veggies like cucumbers are straight lines, so use them to point to the other veggies that are curling around the bowls.

Finally, fill in the middle and the blank spaces with more loose ingredients.

I added shrimp, lettuce, lime, bacon, and lemon slices until every empty spot was covered.

Charcuterie Board Supplies

You don’t need very many supplies to create a stunning charcuterie board.

First, you’ll need a serving platter. Something as simple as a large cutting board will work great!

Next, you’ll need some ramekins. You can use plastic condiment bowls instead of glassware.

Finally, setting out toothpicks, spoons, or mini forks will allow your guests to pick up what they want without spreading germs. If you have mini serving tongs, those work really well too.
