Bloody Mary

Total Time:
10 min
10 min

1 drink

  • Lemon juice, for rimming the glass, plus wedges for squeezing and garnish
  • Tajin seasoning, for rimming the glass, plus 2 shakes
  • 5 ounces premium tomato juice (or make your own from garden-fresh tomatoes--about 1 pound for an 8-ounce cocktail)
  • 2 ounces premium vodka (or any other spirit)
  • 4 dashes hot sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 3 or 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon prepared horseradish (not the creamy kind)
  • 2 pimiento-stuffed olives, such as Mezzetta Spanish Queen Martini Olives, plus 1 to 2 tablespoons olive juice
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fill a small plate or shallow bowl with lemon juice. In a second plat or bowl, spread some Tajin. Dip the rim of an 8- to 10-ounce glass in the lemon juice, followed by a dip in the Tajin.

  • Add a large scoop of ice to the glass, then add the tomato juice, vodka, hot sauce, Worcestershire, horseradish, olive juice and a squeeze of lemon and stir.

  • Garnish the cocktail with the olives, 2 dashes of Tajin, a few turns from a peppermill and a lemon wedge for extra citrus, and serve!

Cook's Note: Some additional fun garnish suggestions: a spicy pickled green bean, pickled okra, an asparagus stalk, a slice of bacon or a beef jerky stick, poached shrimp, a cube of pepper jack cheese or maybe even a bacon-wrapped date!
