Original Juan, The Makers of OJ sauces and the Stockyard range (All natural & Gluten Free) BBQ sauces and rubs, from Kansas City, Missouri are now in stock.
“For more than a century, American stockyards were the center of our nation’s premium meat trade. There is a rich history of quality, pride and craftsmanship associated with the name. American Stockyard sauces will transport you back to the nostalgic days of a good meal and relaxed conversation, where food was made with simple, all-natural ingredients. Our sauces are hand-crafted in small batches, capturing the regional flavour and unique style of stockyards throughout the nation.” from Original Juan website.
We now stock 10 of their products including a selection of rubs and 4 flavours of hot dog relish.
Also just arrived are their new “Bloody Mary Mix” in three flavours.
“A Bloody Mary, as well as the non-alcoholic Virgin Mary, is commonly served in the morning (as are mimosas and screwdrivers).
While there is not much complexity in mixing vodka and tomato juice, more elaborate versions of the drink have become trademarks of the bartenders who make them. A common garnish is a celery stalk when served in a tall glass, often over ice. A beer chaser may also be served with the Bloody Mary, although this varies from region to region.” extract with thanks from WikiBooks.
