Originally crafted by St. Louis bartender Todd Brutcher, he wanted to create a thicker Bloody Mary mix, as he was getting tired of the same old watery mixes. After nearly a decade of regulars asking him to bottle his mix, Todd created Sweat & Tears and Mild Mannered Mary in 2020.
Both mixes are thick, big and bold with low sodium and are gluten free. Sweat and Tears sodium is 4% per serving and Mild Mannered is 16%. Most leading brands, by comparison are 25-48% sodium per serving. Both options are slightly tangy with a light brine, garlic, and peppery mouth.
