It had to happen sooner or later. Jeremy and I love to travel, and when we do, we have a few things that we do a lot of—shopping and photo taking (for me), and trying as many Bloody Marys as possible (for him). It’s tradition.
I would venture to say that the Bloody Mary is the most versatile cocktail. Kinda weird to say that since it’s all mostly just tomato juice, but there are just so many savory combinations you can try that it never ends. One of our favorite local bars (Scotch & Soda) makes a pretty mean Guinness Bloody Mary as well. Anyway, all of that is to say it had to happen, and here it is… Drum roll, please…
Guinness Bloody Mary, serves one
2 cups Bloody Mary mix
1 pinch garlic powder
1 pinch black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper
juice of half a lime
1 ounce vodka
1 drop liquid smoke
1 bottle Guinness Extra Stout (you’ll use 3 ounces of it)
pepper jack cheese
If you haven’t tried this recipe yet, you’ve gotta. I’ve also seen recipes where there is no vodka, only Guinness, but I love it most when they’re both in there. It’s a perfect back porch drink. It’s warming up here in Missouri, so I’m seeing a lot of Bloody Marys on the porch in our immediate future. Yum! xx. Elsie
