If you read my blog, you know what a fan of bone broth I am. It’s not only a superfood that provides collagen and amino acids naturally to our bodies, but a healthy and delicious ingredient to enhance my recipes. So I’m always trying to find new ways to use it.

Apart from drinking bone broth regularly, I like to incorporate bone broth into my recipes such as this Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Bone Broth, Shanghai-Style Braised Pork BellySlow Cooker French Onion Soup, and many more.

I recently discovered that you can even use bone broth to make cocktails! The one that I’ve been obsessed with is the Bloody Bull cocktail.

WHAT IS A BLOODY BULL?

If Bloody Mary is your cup of tea, you might have heard of Bloody Bull and Bullshot since they are all savory cocktails. If not, don’t worry. Let me explain.

Bloody Bull is said to be the creation of Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans. It’s basically a Bloody Mary enriched with beef broth. Here’s why a Bloody Bull is Better Than a Bloody Mary.

BLOODY MARY, BULLSHOT, AND BLOODY BULL: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

The easiest way to learn the differences among these three similar savory drinks is to take a look at their ingredients.

Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary is traditionally made with vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, hot sauce, lemon juice, lime juice, and freshly ground black pepper. It’s usually served in a highball glass.

Bullshot

A Bullshot is much simpler and straightforward. It calls for only three ingredients – vodka, beef bouillon or beef consommé, and Worcestershire sauce. No tomato juice, no seasonings required. Bullshots are normally served in old-fashioned glasses. Sometimes, in highball glasses too.

Bloody Bull

A Bloody Bull contains everything that a Bloody Mary has, plus the beef element from a Bullshot. If I were to describe the differences among those three drinks in one sentence, here’s how I’d start.

Imagine that a Bloody Mary marries a Bullshot and had a baby…

BONE BROTH BLOODY BULL

Now that we are all clear about each member’s character in this “bloody family,” let’s talk about the Bloody Bull a bit more.

If you are sold on giving it a try by now, I have one suggestion – replace the beef broth with beef bone broth in your cocktail for a few reasons.

Pack your Bloody Bull with umami flavor.

A real beef bone broth is slow-simmered for more than 20 hours, bringing out the tart and rich flavor from the bones and added vegetables and herbs. Unlike a regular beef broth or beef stock, it’s much thicker and tastier.

Load up your Bloody Bull with essential nutrients.

Beef bone broth is known for its health benefits. It’s rich in collagen, protein, amino acids which are great for our digestive system, joint, skin, and overall health. So why not use it in your favorite cocktail?

Enjoy your booze without the guilt.

I don’t know about you. But when I make my Bloody Bull with beef bone broth, I feel like I enjoy the cocktail even more because I know that I am getting all those essential nutrients from my booze. No guilt. Just sit back and relax.

I like to use Kettle & Fire Beef Bone Broth for a really quick, convenient, and high-quality source of bone broth. It’s fat-free, low-sodium, and protein-rich! I found that the umami taste and the gel-ish consistency from their beef bone broth make it a perfect ingredient of my Bloody Bull.

If using homemade beef bone broth, make sure to scrape off all the fat before adding it to your Bloody Bull. You want a deliciously savory cocktail, not a greasy one.

Now, I’d like to hear from you. Would you use bone broth in your cocktail recipes? If so, how would you use it? Share in the comments below. I’d love to try your savory cocktail ideas. Cheers!
