    I asked for a Bloody Mary.

    I got Demetri’s mixer and a capful of Tequila.

    No tomato juice.

    Bleah!!!!

    I would never go back there (and tell everyone I know how bad they are) for that travesty.

    Demetri's is just supposed to be a seasoning added to tomato juice, not served on its own.

    And I'm not going to mention how brain dead a bartender has to be to substitute tequila for vodka.

    I'd fire that guy.

    At any rate, I won’t recommend the Bloody Mary.

    LOL!

    What's a "Demetri mixer"?
    Bloody Mary is the simplest cocktail there is.
    Vodka, Tomato Juice, Worcestershire Sauce. (Optional: Salt, Celery Stick)

    Tequila???

    It's a seasoning mix added to tomato juice.

    Some varieties have chili spices and some have horseradish.

    Sounds awful like the "mulled wine" packets available in UK each Christmas.

    Demetri mixer is Worcester sauce, salt, pepper, and vinegar measured out and combined in a bottle that is sold in local groceries in the US for people too lazy to Google how to mix an average Bloody Mary. There was not even a celery (as contrasting one of the best local Bloody Mary’s garnished with pickled asparagus spear, two chunks of cheese, pepperocini, and prawns)

    Added to tomato juice, it provides a little "kick", it's not that bad.

    On its own, yeah, that would be horrible.

    I think every drink’s base was tequila there.

    The Margarita I finally got wasn’t bad
