ABOUT NATURAL BLONDE BLOODY MARY MIX
John Aquino is a native Charlestonian and the creative founder of Natural Blonde Bloody Mary. John debuted the prototype of what was to become Natural Blonde Bloody Mary at a "Bloody Mary Throw Down" in 2012. Inspired by a Yellow Tomato Gazpacho he once had at Hank's Seafood, he created his unique mix. After winning that competition and receiving many requests for the recipe, John decided to create a mix for the public. He uses fresh tomatoes (as opposed to canned, or even paste, as the majority of retail mixes do) and experimented with multiple types of yellow tomatoes to find the right balance of acidity, water content, and flavor. After two years of testing, the locally sourced Valencia Gold and Carolina Gold Tomatoes became his favorites. And, the rest is delicious history.
