Too Bloody Hot





Introduction: 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.

This any many more cocktail recipes can be found on my website

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.

    For an extra home-made kick, use the DIY Sriracha

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

    In Canada its called a Cesar not sure what the rest of the world calls them (bloody Marys) is similar i think how you cure it with the peppers before serving..bacon is a great add-on....
    nice ible

     Mmmmmmmmmmm, spicy vodka AND Sriracha? You are speakin' my language! You've got my vote!

     mmmm hello there  you spicy lil darling, its a pleasure to see you!

    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...

    Excellent.  There should be more drinks garnished with bacon!
