(ABC 6 News) – Every week ABC 6 News features a vendor, this week it’s Sideshow Bloody Mary Mix, a Minnesota business that started right at the kitchen table.

"My wife and I started this out of our kitchen about six years ago. Now, we’re in about 140 locations in Minnesota and South Dakota, and we love doing these shows," said owner Pete Holzer.

Pete says what’s special about their mix is the ingredients, "The unique thing about our flavors is that in our Bloody Mary mixes here we use a blend of up to 15 different ingredients. Most Bloody Mary companies don’t use that many, and the way that we process it makes it really super fresh."

And, if you’re not a fan of the brunch cocktail Pete says there’s plenty of other uses for the mix, "You can also cook with it, it makes a great substitute in chili, dips, wings, stuff like that."

Along with the mix, Sideshow also sells four different kinds of stuffed olives, perfect for a Bloody Mary garnish or in an array of dishes.
