This Halloween Bloody Mary recipe is sure to charm your guests this Halloween season.

Ok, so…alcohol is a very controversial topic when it comes to cleaning up your diet and using food as medicine. It’s not technically keto-approved or paleo-friendly and it’s certainly not good for you. I actually prefer not to drink and I don’t recommend it if you are actively working to optimize your health with nutrition and lifestyle interventions. So, if you’re working on your health, make sure your bloody mary is of the virgin variety.

If you’re following a ketogenic diet, be very careful consuming alcohol. You will absorb it much faster than you’re used to and you will likely have a lower tolerance than you’re expecting. So pace yourself and make sure you drink plenty of water and keep your electrolytes up.

No Halloween bash is complete without cocktails and there is no cocktail more festive for this time of year than the traditional bloody mary! Here’s a recipe for an amazing low-carb bloody mary cocktail with a scrumptious garnish of pickle salami bats!

Find Halloween Glassware on Amazon!

Treat your guests to a creepy drink served with a ghoulish spread of Dead Mans Rib’s, Spider Deviled Eggs, and Bloody Chicken Eyeball meatballs. Get the music pumping, make sure everyone has a designated driver, and enjoy a great night that your guests will be talking about for years to come!

Drink responsibly and have a very Happy Halloween!

When it comes to Halloween cocktails, the traditional bloody mary has to be the most festive. This Halloween Bloody Mary recipe is sure to inspire your guests this Halloween season.


  • 1.5 oz. Titos Vodka
  • 36 oz. Tomato Juice (or see note)
  • 1 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1/8 tsp. Celery Salt
  • 23 Drops Tobasco Sauce
  • 23 Drops Worcestershire Sauce
  • Dash Black Pepper

Salami Pickle Bat Garnish

  • Salami
  • Miniature Circle Cookie Cutter
  • Baby Pickles
  • Whole Cloves
  • Wooden Skewers
  • Red Food Coloring (Optional)


  • In a tallish glass, mix vodka, tomato juice, and lemon juice.
  • Mix in the flavorings, adjusting to taste.
  • Add ice cubes, and garnish.

Salami Pickle Bat Garnish

  • Cut 1/4-inch-thick slices of salami in half. You will be able to cut two wings from each slice.
  • Using a metal miniature circle cookie cutter (or the head portion of a small gingerbread-man cookie cutter), press half circles along the curved edge of the salami.
  • Use a baby pickle for the bat body.
  • Press the stems of wholes cloves into the wide end of the pickle for eyes. Push the wings and then the body onto a wooden skewer.
  • If desired, tint the top of the skewer with red food coloring and let it flow onto the pickle.


Note: An ounce of tomato juice has slightly over one gram of carbohydrate. Most recipes for Bloody Marys have anywhere from 3 to 6 ounces of tomato juice, so you can cut the 6 ounces in half and still be faithful to the Bloody Mary tradition.
