Bloody Mary “Shooters”

I love Bloody Marys.

Love them with an intense burning passion, to be exact.

This wasn’t always the case. In my early twenties, I favored sweet mixers to the briny, spicy tomato juice mixture found in my now favorite drink. Luckily, it didn’t take me that long to realize that sweet drinks cause hangovers, and tomato juice is super nourishing. Quickly the Bloody Mary has become my go to drink at brunches, lunches and really anytime a bartender has tomato juice on hand.

These Bloody Mary “Shooters” aren’t actually intended to be shotgunned, but they are the right size if that’s your thing. Rather, these are intended to be served at a brunch alongside other small sized appetizers. I substitute the usual Worcestershire Sauce (which I’m not keen on) with a bevy of other delicious ingredients. The best part? The Old Bay rim.

Bloody Mary Shooters

Per two 2-2.5 oz shooters

1 oz Vodka

2 oz Tomato Juice

1 tsp Olive Juice

1/2 tsp Lemon Juice

1/4 tsp Prepared Horseradish

1/4 tsp Hot Sauce

1/8 tsp Onion Powder

Lemon Wedge

Old Bay Seasoning

Pour a bit of old bay seasoning on a plate (you can mix in a little salt if you would like). Take your lemon wedge and pass it alongside the rim of your glass. Carefully dip the glass into the seasoning and with a twisting motion, coat the rim. I went a little heavy-handed on mine, you may want to do a lighter rim.

Mix all of your ingredients in a shaker with ice. Do your best Cocktail impression. Pour into your glass. Enjoy!
