My husband loves bloody marys like you wouldn’t believe. Lately I’ve been getting into experimenting with new flavors again. Last time we were flying, we made a gigantic list of bloody mary flavor ideas. One night, we even tried a pickle bloody mary. I loved it, he didn’t.
This recipe is simple and straightforward. If you like basil, you’ll love it. The cheese is a fun bonus too!
bloody mary mix
1-2 ounces vodka
pepperjack cheese squares
In the bottom of your glass, tear up a few basil leaves and muddle them with the juice of half a lemon. Fill the glass halfway with bloody mary mix. Add 1 ounce vodka for a mild cocktail or 2 ounces for a more “serious” version. Add 1/2 a teaspoon tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. Top the glass off with ice and add a little more bloody mary mix if needed. Garnish the drink with cubes of pepper jack cheese, fresh basil leaves and olives. Yum yum. Done and done!
