Spicy Hot Bloody Mary

While on vacation in August, for some reason, someone in Mr.Surly’s family got a craving for a Bloody Mary. No one really knew how to make a bloody mary, so Mr.Surly’s sister, an aspiring NYC bartender, took charge of the task. The result was delicious; so good, in fact, that once home Mr.Surly requested a bloody mary one Saturday afternoon. I had to text Surly-SIL (sister-in-law) for the recipe. She gave me the ingredient list but I had to play around with the ratio’s to get it to Mr.Surly’s liking (it took a couple of attempts).

Warning about these; they are hot and spicy. If that isn’t your thing, just use regular V8 and maybe omit the creole seasonings.
