There isn't a lot of information out there in the interwebs about Blood Shot, but they do have a Facebook page. Like them!
But it's not important whether or not you can find information about the company. What *is* important is that you go buy a bottle of this stuff, add a little vodka, and drink it!
Blood Shot is made in Springfield, Illinois by an entertaining couple (Steve and Trish Squires), whom I met at the Illinois Products Expo this February. They are extremely enthusiastic about their product, and rightfully so. I'm *VERY* picky about my Bloody Mary! (Yeah, I'm an 80-year-old woman...so what?!) Blood Shot isn't too sweet, it's not too spicy, and it's great with vodka! Do you really need anything more? :)
Ok, so now the good stuff: where to buy. According to the paper I got from Mr. Blood Shot at the Expo, you can buy Blood Shot in the following stores in the Springfield area:
- Schnuck's (Sangamon Rd., Chatham Rd.)
- County Market (S. Sixth St., W. Monroe St., Chatham store, Quincy store)
- Famous Liquors (Wabash Ave.)
- Friar Tuck (Springfield store, Bloomington store, Savoy store, Peoria store)
- QIK n EZ (Stevenson Dr., W. Monroe St., Peoria Rd., Toronto Rd., North Grand Ave., Wabash Ave.)
- Northender (9th St.)
- Pease's (all Springfield stores)

You can also order directly from Blood Shot. Their contact info is:
1604 Whittier Ave.
Springfield, IL 62704
Their business card says they'll sell you a case (12 32-ounce bottles) for $38. Not bad! I haven't checked prices at the stores listed above, but I would imagine it's pretty reasonable.
So...Now, you really have no excuse to go get a bottle of this. In fact, I strongly encourage it! :)
