Too Bloody Hot




About: Not much to say.

The key to this Bloody Mary variation is vodka infused with spicy peppers.  It lends a rounder, more unique flavor than just dashing in some hot sauce, and despite the title, it's not one of those concoctions that is so spicy as to be unpleasant.

Step 1: Make Firewater


  • 1/2 cup mixed, dried, spicy peppers
  • 1 750-ml bottle vodka
  1. Soak peppers in 1/2 cup vodka overnight to soften in the bottom of a large jar.
  2. Press air out of softened peppers to prevent floaters.
  3. Cover with remaining vodka and allow to macerate for one week.

Note: there’s no way to give exact measurements, because pepper availability and spiciness vary greatly, so make it hot and dilute it with vodka to taste.

Step 2: Build the Too Bloody Hot

2 ounces firewater
4 ounces V8
Juice of 1/4 lemon
1 Dash Worcestershire sauce
2 Dashes Sriracha
1 Pinch celery salt
1 Pinch black pepper
1/3 teaspoon horseradish
Garnish: 1 celery stick, 1 lemon wedge, 1 spear pickled veggies (or olives), 1 strip crispy bacon

Add ingredients and ice to a large mixing glass.
Roll back and forth between two glasses.
Pour into a highball and garnish.
Take a deep breath.

    Is that a slice of bacon being used for garnish? I think that qualifies as a breakfast drink AND breakfast!

    I make a habanero vodka by dropping a habanero pepper in a bottle of vodka, I mention it in this "ible"  Thats my basic Hot Mary, I like to add steak sauce and worcheshire sauce and (if its on hand) horseradish. Personally I'm not real big on garnishes but that bacon IS intriqing !  Warning: This is on the upper level of the heat scales so use caution if trying...
