When I worked at the Boys and Girls Club, the older kids liked to scare the little ones with the story of Bloody Mary. Have you heard it? As legend goes, Bloody Mary appears if they spun around three times in front of a mirror while chanting her name. (You can read more of the legend here.) It was kind of terrifying and I’m an adult. I will never forget the morning my favorite little kid ran out of the bathroom with tears in his eyes, so afraid that “Bloody Muddy” was going to get him. There were so many time-outs that day.
This drink goes out to that little guy, wherever he is. I hope he’s out terrifying the big kids with some gut wrenching tales.
- 8 oz. Bloody Mary Mix (I cheated a bit on this one and went with a Trader Joe’s mix. You could also use tomato juice and Worcestershire sauce).
- 1 shot of vodka
- 15! shakes of Texas Pete (less if you like a less spicy drink)
- 1 dash of onion powder
- 1 dash of garlic powder
- Splash of canned olive juice
- Garnish with fresh, cracked black pepper and olives
Also, can we talk about how serving in a jar saves on clean up. AND. AND. AND. You can make these before a party and have them ready to go! Have you ever had a Texas Pete Bloody Mary? Let me know in the comments!
