Bloody Mary’s are one of my favorite cocktails to order because everyone has their own mix or garnishes that they add. I decided to kick it up a notch with a fish bowl style Bloody Mary loaded with all kinds of little snacks! There are much more extreme versions I’ve seen that come complete with a mini cheeseburger, but that’s the beautiful thing about them.. they’re open to interpretation! Take a peek at my spicy Bloody Mary recipe, the ‘fixins,’ and then concoct your own!
Recipe adapted from my Peppered Bacon Bloody Mary’s
(makes 8 servings so make sure you have friends around to share this with!)
6 cups tomato juice
2 cups vodka
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbs Sriracha (or your favorite hot sauce)
2 tsp celery salt
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp freshly ground pepper
Juice from 1 lemon
Juice from 1 lime
Now for the fun part!
Cooked bacon strips
Lemon and lime wedges
You get the idea… the possibilities are endless!
In a 1 gallon fish tank ($5 at most pet stores!), pitcher, or other large drinking vessel, combine tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, celery salt, kosher salt, ground pepper, lemon, and lime juice. Stir until ingredients are mixed. Throw a few celery sticks in the bowl, use wooden skewers to skewer the rest of the garnishes, and float a few lemon wedges in the bowl.
Add 1-2 handfuls of ice, extra long straws, and serve!
