What could be easier than a Bloody Mary? Just pour some Bloody Mary mix and add some vodka, right? Not so fast. A great Bloody Mary needs to be made from scratch, and requires a few more ingredients. And if you want the BEST Bloody Mary, you need some Sriracha hot sauce. I also add a rim of kosher salt and Old Bay seasoning to the glass, which I now cannot live without.
This Bloody Mary recipe is for one cocktail. I usually make one at a time if I’m just making one or two, but you could also make a pitcher of Bloody Mary for larger crowds.
Sriracha Bloody Mary – What You’ll Need:
- 6 oz tomato juice
- 1 Tbsp cocktail sauce
- 1.5 oz vodka
- 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp Sriracha sauce
- 1/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning
- dash (1/8 tsp) fresh ground black pepper
- dash (1/8 tsp) salt
- dash (1/8 tsp) smoked paprika
- wedge of lemon & lime
Sriracha Bloody Mary – What You’ll Need To Do:
Fill a large glass (13-14 oz) half full of ice cubes and then dump the ice into a cocktail shaker.
Mix a tablespoon of kosher salt and Old Bay seasoning and distribute evenly onto a small plate. Rub a lemon wedge along the rim of the glass, and then dip the glass onto the plate of salt–Old Bay mixture and give it a quarter turn.
Add all the above ingredients into the cocktail shaker. Squeeze the juice from the lemon and lime wedge before adding them to the mix. Shake well for 15-20 seconds. Carefully pour the shaker contents, including the ice cubes, into the rimmed glass.
Garnish with green olives (preferably bleu cheese-stuffed) and a celery stalk.
