Perfect Spicy Bloody Mary Recipe
Here’s a perfect balance of savory flavor with plenty of heat to help you sweat out that hangover. Any ham-handed bartender can simply dump a pool of Tabasco sauce into tomato juice, vodka, and Worcestershire sauce and call it a spicy bloody Mary recipe. Let’s do better.
This recipe will give a rich and complex spice without bruising the tongue with too much salt or other seasonings. Obviously, any bloody Mary mix can be tweaked to an individual’s taste. Most spices found in mixes come from cayenne pepper. That’s fine. Cayenne gives a nice tip-of-the-tongue heat. It’s a good start. We’re going to take your taste buds for more of a ride than that though. The Big Fat Spicy Bloody Mary Recipe starts at the tip, works its way back the tongue, and then hits the sinuses. Got your attention? Good!Lets on this 3 stage burn. Cayenne wil be stage one, jalapeño stage two, and fresh wasabi stage 3.
*The cornerstone of this recipe is a jalapeño pepper infused vodka. Keep it on hand at all times. Simply drop one or two jalapeño peppers into a bottle of vodka and let it sit for a week. (If it lasts 2 weeks, remove the peppers before they get bitter.) The heat is all back of the tongue.
Be sure you have an ice cold beer to chase this spicy bloody Mary down with.
