Well, you knew it had to happen sooner or later…
I used some of our new Habanero Death Dust in a bloody mary last night. It was really good. Here’s the recipe…
Oakridge BBQ Full Moon Habanero Bloody Marys
- 2½ oz. Moonshine (or Vodka)
- 6 oz. V8 Juice
- 8 dashes Wooster
- Juice from two lemon wedges
- 1 tsp. Oakridge BBQ Habanero Death Dust®
- Ice to fill glass
- Hi-ball glass
- Celery stalks and lemon wedge for garnish
In a shaker glass, mix all ingredients (except ice and garnish) by shaking or stirring thoroughly. Then pour over ice into a Hi-ball or Pint glass. Garnish with celery stalks and a lemon wedge. Enjoy!
It was really good. Nice and spicy, especially when you got down to the bottom of the glass… However, I think the low sodium tomato juice detracted from it just a tiny bit.
Next time, I’ll skip the low sodium V8 and go for the full leaded variety. I think this drink would have been just about perfect if the tomato juice wasn’t quite as flat tasting.
But, all in all, it was a pretty darn good bloody mary. Just perfect for sipping while standing over your backyard Q.
