Not only the first Bloody Mary I’ve ever made, but also the first one I’ve ever had to drink. After retiring when I worked at BottleMixx, a customer came in every week and bought two large bottles of Charleston Bold & Spicy 🌶Bloody Mary Mix. I asked her about it and she talked me in to giving it a try. Several months later I bought a small bottle—many months later I opened the mix and made THIS drink!
2 oz Absolut Vodka
8 oz (1 bottle) Charleston Bold & Spicy Mix
People throw the kitchen sink in as a garnish; I used Ritz Tabasco 🌶 chips!
Combine the Vodka and the mix into a cocktail shaker.
Shake vigorously until well chilled and dirty dump into a large chilled glass.
Add a celery stalk, cucumber, shrimp on a stick, you name it — but darn if those spicy chips weren’t great!?!
