Everyone who had a bloody mary with Cel-Ray in it liked it, although one person did think it made it a bit sweet. I thought the carbonation really added to the spiciness, which was nice. I wasn't really sure if the fact that it was Cel-Ray in particular added anything, or if it could have been any soda. Still, it was good. And the people who had alcohol in their drinks also had good things to say about the soda in there, so it looks like this is definitely worth trying.
