Datil pepper bloody Mary

Dat’l Hook Ya Bloody Mary

For a tasty spin on a favorite cocktail from one of our loyal customers.

2 Cup V-8 Juice (low sodium)
1/2 Cup Vodka
1 tbsp Horseradish
1 tbs Pickle juice
2 tbs Worcestershire
1 tsp Ground pepper
1 tsp Lime juice
1 tsp hot sauce (Frank’s or Louisiana style for flavor more than heat)
2 tsp (or to taste) Dat’l Hook Ya

Garnish: My standards are lime/lemon wedge, 1/2 celery stalk (depending on size of glass) pickled pepper of some type (whole or sliced), pickled onions, green olives, pickle wedge or slices, shrimp, or anything else that floats the boat (crab leg?!).

Rim the glass: celery salt is classic but you can also mix in some dat’l powder, ground pepper, etc. mix and put on small plate. Before filling the glass with dat’l bloody mix, wet the edge and push the edge into the powder mix.

Mix up all ingredients. Taste. Then add vodka. Add ice to glasses. Add things like pickled peppers, pickles, olive, onions then fill with the mix. Ground a bit of pepper, then put lime/lemon wedge, shrimp, etc. on glass edge. Add celery stalk.

Makes 2 good size servings plus some extra to top off later. Or 4 smaller servings.
