  • About

The Bloody Mary is the quintessential breakfast or brunch cocktail, and with tomato juice and bacon it is also a nutritious one (well, in my opinion). This obviously is great to drink with egg dishes, but this savory cocktail goes well with sandwiches and tacos, too.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups (960 ml) freshly pressed store-bought tomato juice
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) bacon-infused vodka
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce, such as Tabasco
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Ice cubes (optional)
  • Crisp cooked bacon
  • Pitted green olives
  • Dill pickle spears
  • Lemon slices

Method

Mix together the tomato juice, vodka, horseradish, hot sauce, celery salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice in a pitcher. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 48 hours.

Pour into tall glasses, over ice (if desired), and garnish each glass with a strip of bacon, green olives, a pickle spear, and a slice of lemon.
