Here are a Few Delicious Recipes to go with Your Brunch to Help You Celebrate Both National Bloody Mary Day and New Year’s Day on Jan 1st
The first recipe is a smoky classic made with Crystal Head Vodka, a multi-award winning, ultra-premium vodka created by actor Dan Aykroyd and renowned artist John Alexander. Unlike classic vodka bottles, Crystal Head Vodka comes in a vessel crafted as the symbol of life, reflecting power and enlightenment. The original recipe is made from peaches and cream corn.
Crystal Head Caesar
2 oz. Crystal Head Vodka
5 oz. Clamato (Caesar) or tomato juice (Bloody Mary)
dash of Worcestershire sauce
dash of hot sauce
tiny dash of liquid smoke
garnish of your choice
Rub the rim of the glass with a lemon wedge and dip into salt, pepper and smoked paprika mix. In a shaker half filled with ice, add all ingredients and shake well. Strain into the pre-rimmed glass filled with ice.
While Bloody Marys are typically made with vodka, here’s a tequila version twist on a Bloody Maria made with Tanteo Chipotle Tequila, an ultra-premium 100% agave blanco tequila infused with roasted chipotle peppers from the rugged mountains of Chihuahua, Mexico. Smoky and spicy, with a hint of agave sweetness, this well balanced tequila adds just the right amount of smoke to your spicy cocktail recipes.
