We call this the Merry Merry Bloody Mary because, unlike the original Bloody Mary, this recipe is super simple with only a few ingredients, and it's merrily delicious!
Here's all you need:
2 ounces vodka
6 ounces Spicy V8
a squeeze of lemon
freshly ground black pepper
sea salt (optional)
Garnish Options: celery, lemon or lime wedge, stuffed green olives, star fruit, roasted peppers, spicy asparagus.
Using a Cocktail Shaker or tall glass, add 4 to 6 cubes of ice, the vodka (for adults only), Spicy V8, a dash of freshly ground black pepper and a squeeze of lemon.
Give the mixture a good shake.
To wet the glass rim and get the salt to stick (if using), run the lemon around the edge, then dip the rim into the salt.
Pour into a chilled prepared glass.
Add a bit of crushed ice, and garnish with your choice of favorites!
